* This week we are looking at the importance of our Christian value of hope and the story of Bartimaeus.
* Watch the video on the blog. St James children have produced a fantastic video this for this week, looking at hope through this bible story.
* What does hope mean to you?
* How can you be a hope carrier?
* There are lots of examples in the Bible where God shows us that we can have hope in Him and he helps us overcome difficulties. Can you discuss any?
* What will you take away with you from the story of Bartimaeus?
* How do we overcome barriers and obstacles?
* Think about the door and how you will take this with you into the community.
