Items Needed:

  • Stones – enough for one per person.
  • Bucket of water (The larger the better – a dustbin filled with water is ideal)


Pass everyone a stone.

When we sin we carry the weight of it with us. God wants to take that burden from us and forgive us.

Hold the stone in your hand. Feel its weight and think about any weight you are carrying in your heart that God wants you to let go.

If you would like to, bring your stone out to the bucket at the front. Hold your stone over the bucket and let go. As you do so let go of the things you have brought to God, accepting his forgiveness and his love for you!

When everyone has had a chance to drop their stone into the bucket, say a prayer thanking God for his gift of forgiveness.
