Centurions Faith (Luke 7) | Craft 1


This paper craft of the Centurions servant being healed used a little flip to expand the scene. It shows how the centurion doesn’t leave the room and yet conveys his faith through messengers to Jesus – pictured through the window outside. It’s a perfect craft for groups who love coloring or those with really really limited time. It’s also a lovely craft for younger groups to assemble as it goes together like a 2 piece jigsaw.

  1. Hi Kate hopw you are well. I am organising this months Messy Church and was wondering if you would be able to send me the pdf for the Jesus heals the Centurion Servant craft. As you can imagine being a Church our funds are very limited so everything we do has to be a free activity for our community. If you would be able to send this I would be very grateful if you can’t we obviously understand. Kind regards
