This is an idea for a short act of worship for all ages that focuses on the story of Jesus returning to heaven after 40 days of resurrection appearances. Jesus leaves, giving his followers a promise and a command. On your marks: Ascension Day used to be better known as a day of celebration than it is today, even within church circles. Call to worship Use one or more of the following 'call and response' phrases: Leader: We are not just once in a while friends. All: We are the family of God. Leader: We are not just a cosy club.
All: We are the body of Christ. Leader: We are not just strangers meeting. All: We are temples of the Holy Spirit. Leader: We are not here by accident. All: Father God has called us to worship. Leader: We are not just passing time. All: Jesus wants us to know him better. Leader: We are not just doing the same old thing. All: The Holy Spirit has some special words for us. A way to tell the story together 40 days after Easter, Jesus climbed a hill with his friends - invite everyone to act out climbing up a hill.

It was time for Jesus to go back to God in heaven but he left a very special promise: 'I am always with you' - get everyone to count out these five words on the digits of one hand. And he gave them all a job to do: 'Go into all the world' invite everyone to point forward with one hand and then describe a big circle 'and share the good news of God's love' invite everyone to hold out both hands together as if offering a gift 'with everybody, everywhere' invite everyone to point to everybody else in the room as rapidly as possible.
And he promised them that the special power to do this would come from God very soon - invite everyone to look puzzled. And then Jesus disappeared before their very eyes - invite everyone to shade their eyes with one hand, looking intently as Jesus leaves and then to react with amazement.
And the story says that angels appeared, who said that Jesus would be back one day in the same dramatic way - invite a reaction of shock and joy. Use this 'left behind' idea for prayers: Invite everyone to put their left hand behind their backs - let's pray for all those who feel left behind because they have no job and no hope.

He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable. He gives power to the faint, and strengthens the powerless. Even youths will faint and be weary, and the young will fall exhausted; but those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount up with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint.
