Feeding of the 5000 for older children

The story of Jesus feeding the 5000 with only 5 loaves and 2 fish allows us to talk about the miracles of Jesus, what is a miracle? Do we believe miracles can happen? We can look at the themes of ‘rest’ and ‘compassion’. Asking children to identify them in the story and also to consider their own lives, where do they find rest? How can they show compassion?

To tell the story why not use this wonderful powerpoint.
