Warring Worship [a skit on a battle of worship styles, but Jesus want's different again]

   Performance: Postponed

Based on Romans 12:1

A formally dressed older ‘conservative’ person walks out and tuns on a stereo, some hymn music starts, they start to sing.

> Holy Holy Holy (hymn)

A casually dressed youth soon comes out and screws up their nose, and not noticing the conservative person, switches the music to some modern Christian song, and starts raising hands, swaying and singing away.

> Holy Holy Holy (praise him and lift him up version with clapping along)

Conservative stares at disbelief at youth, and switches the music back to a new conservative hymn,

Disloyal Puppet [a children's story puppet play on loyalty (and subtly Adultry)]

 Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - July 10, 2021

Teacher: Hello girls and boys! Today I want to talk to you about loyalty. Loyalty is where you keep supporting a team, friend or partner - even when things are a little difficult, or you think you see a better option.

Child: That’s it! I’m going for the other team!

Teacher: Hello Reece. What’s going on?

Child: Oh, hi aunty Rachel. My teams losing again. So I think I’ll start cheering for the other team now.

Teacher: What? Just because your team’s losing you’re going to change teams?

Child: Actually, I like the colour of the other team’s tops better too.

Teacher: Wait, how long have you been following your team?

Child: Oh… most of my life, I think. I used to think they were the greatest.

Teacher: You shouldn’t just change teams because one day you think another team is better than yours, or you’re losing one game.

Child: …and they have better jumpers.

Teacher: But what about when this other team loses, like last week – I’m pretty sure they lost. Would you change teams again?

Child: Hmm. Maybe??

Teacher: Really?

Child: What colour tops did they have?

Teacher: Um, blue, but…

Child: I love blue! I think I’ll follow them. What’s their team name?

Teacher: Wait, now you’re changing again?

Child: Yeah why not? If I see a team I like better - I can follow them, can’t I?

Teacher: Well, you could…

Child: There you go

Teacher: But you’re not showing any loyalty

Child: What’s loyalty?

Teacher: It’s when you choose to continue to like someone, or a team, above others, EVEN when you decide they are no longer as attractive as some of the other options around you.

Child: But why not change teams now that I’ve seen a better team?

Teacher: If you change teams just because you see a better team one day, that’s actually quite selfish and shallow. There will ALWAYS better teams appearing, but there is no honour in changing teams so easily. It’s not fair on your original team either.

Child: So, you’re saying I can never ever change teams?

Teacher: Look, if the team you were supporting was cheating, or became violent, then yes, it could be for the best to stop supporting your original team, but usually, you should just keep giving your support and at some stage you’ll start winning again, And it will be so much sweeter!

Child: I guess, but what if my team is closed down and no longer exist. Does that mean I can no longer follow any team - if I need to be loyal.

Teacher: That would be very sad. I think after a bit of time you could probably pick a new team, if you found one you really liked.

Child: Oh. So, what do I do then, if my team keeps losing? It’s not much fun.

Teacher: How about instead of leaving them, you write a letter of encouragement to them. Maybe that will inspire them to train harder and they will start winning again.

Child: Hmmm, ok. I guess it will be cheaper too

Teacher: Cheaper?

Child: I don’t have to buy a new team hat each time I swap.

Teacher: Oh, I see. That would be a bonus benefit for not changing teams, yes.

Child: Ok, thanks aunty Rachel. I’ll go write a letter to them, and tell them I still support them and hope they can start winning again soon.

Teacher: Good work.
Loyalty: it’s supporting a team, friend or partner - even when things are a little difficult, or you think you see a better option. Loyalty.

Social Justice Children’s Story

(Story concept - incomplete)

Pretend I have a shop and I have some work that needs doing, and I will pay my workers who help me.

Let me choose two workers

 (Pays three coins to the stereotypically ‘unprivileged’ each time and one coin to the ‘privileged’.)

 Let me check my payment guide

One wearing shoes, one not

One long hair, one not

One tall, one not

One young, one, not

One boy, one not

One white, one not

One born in Australia, one not


Now was that fair? I paid every single person immediately for their work.

No? What wasn’t fair?

Some people in the world think so. So I’m just following what they think. It works out cheaper for me too!

So now it’s now time to buy some food for your families. Who likes food?

Everyone stand up and line up at my shop so you can buy your family some food.


Everything in my shop costs two coins.

Come past one at a time with your coins and then sit down with your food.

So how come you kids haven’t bought anything for your family to eat. Don’t you care about your family?

Not enough coins? Have you been lazy?

What could we do to fix this?

(Those with a coin left give it to those who haven’t bought yet.)

Another option? We could have also paid the same amount to everyone who did the same job to begin with. If you’re doing the same work with the same ability you should have an equal opportunity to earn the same money.

You know, some of the adults in the world have made things unfair just like I did today. People are treated differently based on if they are boys or girls, or if their skin colour is black or white or maybe if their family wasn’t born here.

The good news is there are adults trying to fix this and now make things fairer then they have been in the past.

But if they don’t manage to it it, I really hope when you get older you’ll treat everyone fairly, and also encourage others to do so too.

And, just like your parents may do, you can share some of the money you earn with those in the world who don’t have even enough money to buy their family food.

Working together to help others [children's story]


Today I’d like your help to have my picture drawn.

My wife is away this weekend and I thought it would be nice to have a nice picture of myself I can give her so next time she goes away she can take the picture to remember how hansom I am.

I’d use a photo but thought if we do a drawing I can have some extra hair added.

I have the things you’ll need to draw me in this box.

(Clipboard, paper, blunt pencil, pencil sharpener.)


Ok who would like to draw me?

Take just take one thing only.

Ok stand there and draw.

Ok go stand over here, we’ll try someone else who might have more experience.

Just one thing


So I’m sure I brought all the things needed to draw a picture


Many skills makes toilet flush

 Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - May 2, 2021

Some quick questions kids:

  • Who did not eat all their food this week, because they thought something was yucky?
  • Slept in a house?
  • Drank water?
  • Went to school?  
  • Flushed the toilet after using it?

You are all very blessed to be able to do all those things. There’s many boys and girls around the world who couldn’t do all those things.

Today I’d like your help to have my picture drawn.
My wife is away this weekend and I thought it would be nice to have a nice picture of myself I can give her, so next time she goes away she can take the picture to remember how handsome I am.

That’s Not Fair [an adult’s children’s story skit]

Performance: Castle Hill Seventh-day Adventist Church - March 27, 2021

[Jesus loves me plays on the  piano as the several narrator children line up across stage, each holding a book, and will read a line each after each other]
Hello adults! It’s now time for your story. 
So please sit quietly and keep your hands to yourselves. 
Unless you’re married, then you can hold hand.
Have you all had a good week, not at school?
Now do you remember when you were a child, it seemed like many things were unfair.
  • You had to eat your peas, when all you wanted was chips
  • You had to clean your room when all you wanted to do was play
  • You had to go to bed when everyone else could stay up
  • Your little brother or sister broke the toy that you were forced to share with them
  • Or maybe all your friends had a colour TV, when yours was black and white.
