Have as much fun as you can with everyone – but don’t forget those that might find the celebration difficult. Ensure they feel included whether by leading something, being on a team or maybe having a place as part of the worship or service. Try not to alienate anyone – so if that means doing a hymn, that’s cool, do it fun and well. Let’s strive to make all-age worship not just inclusive but also a time that honours those for whom this may take time to adjust.

Simon Parry has contributed songs to all of the Vineyard Great Big God albums and has played keyboards and led worship on most of them.  His funky songs include "Come on and Dance", "God You’re So Cool" and "God’s Love is Big".  He has led numerous Great Big God events across the UK as well as large scale children’s programmes at conferences such as Soul Survivor, New Wine and Easter People. Simon is the Kids' Pastor at St Paul's Ealing.
