Missionary Discipleship 2020
THIS WEEK'S CHALLENGE - 6th July 2020
This week's challenge is to decide how you could help other people. Perhaps donate to your local food bank, or charity shop or have a go at a sponsored event to raise money for a charity of your choice.
Remember to send in a photo or video of you completing the challenge to email@example.com by Thursday to feature on 'Home time hangouts' at 2.30 and on 'Friday Night Live' at 6pm.
Week 10 - 29th June 2020
This week's challenge to help us to be Missionary Disciples is to write a letter of thanks to someone who has helped us during lockdown. This is something which could be easily done at home or in school an is a really positive way to recognise the hard work of teachers, support staff, parents, hospital workers, supermarket staff and anyone who has helped us in anyway over the last few months.
Week 9 - 22nd June 2020
Tom Baptist has set this week's challenge which is about keeping in touch. So pick up the phone and call someone you know might like to hear from you.
Week 8 - 15th June 2020
Vicki explains that this week’s theme is knowledge and she has set us the challenge of sharing a piece of knowledge or a life-hack with someone else.
This could be with someone in your class, it could be showing your mum or dad how to use some technology properly (haha!) or sharing a trick or life-hack with all of us!
Week 7 - 8th June 2020
This week's challenge is to create a prayer space within your home. This could also be done in school, perhaps by students creating something special to add to their prayer spaces.
Or perhaps, students could create something in school to take home and make a prayer space at home.
Week 6 - 1st June 2020
This week's challenge is to follow in the footsteps of the Disciples after Pentecost, by sharing a message of love or hope with someone in a different language.
Week 5 - 26th May 2020
This week's challenge is to learn a new skill and get sponsored for charity!
Charities are finding things hard at the moment because lots of fundraising events have had to be cancelled. This week, you are being challenged to learn a new skill, or perhaps use an existing one, to get sponsored and raise money for your chosen charity.
Week 4 - Monday 18th May 2020
In this weeks challenge, you are being encouraged to be a Missionary Disciple by sharing a story with someone.
This could be by reading a Bible story or your favourite story and recording it for a loved one. It could mean that you read a story to some younger students in school or for a younger relative. Maybe you could even come up with your own story on a storyboard?
Week 3 - Monday 11th May 2020
Episode 3 - This week's challenge has been set by Vicki Mullen, Acting Lead Lay Chaplain of the Our Lady of Lourdes CMAT
Send a letter or a drawing to your parish priest to cheer them up!

Week 2 - Monday 4th May 2020
This week's challenge has been set by Joe Hopkins, Lead Lay Chaplain of the St Ralph Sherwin CMAT.
The challenge this week is to get in touch with someone with a message of hope or just to have a chat and check they are ok, and then challenge them to do the same.
The message that is sent could be a poster made and held up outside a grandparents house, a text message, a letter a phone call or anything really.
However, if you wanted to send a text or WhatsApp, and it is on an iPhone, you can record it in the same way Joe has done. You can do this by going to settings - control centre and then adding 'screen recording' as an option!
Here is Joe's video:
