Bert Is My Shepherd – New Script (and hilarious if I do say so myself!)

I’m on holiday with my girlies this week, but just to keep things ticking over, enjoy this script written for my church’s recent all-age worship. It’s great for Messy Church or regular services, a youth group activity or Collective Worship when schools are back.

Bert Is My Shepherd

Meet Bert, the not-so-good shepherd of Psalm 23, and watch out for the … oops, too late.

[Here’s the whole service, with the drama starting at 7:15]

[Here’s a You Tube video of the drama]

Permission is granted to use the video above ( and the script below in educational and religious settings.

And here’s the script. If you want to share it with others, please refer them to this page.

Each week you’ll find Bible study ideas for all ways of learning and all ages (not just ‘for the kiddies’). You can use them on your own, over Skype with friends, or on the sofa with your little ones and big ones. There are also links to audio Bible readings from Bible Gateway and links to other resources from The Reflectionary.

Links for PDFs are below.

Remember you can use the website menus to find different resources on other passages.

From September I’ll start back on lectionary-linked resources, published on Mondays for the following Sunday.

The Reflectionary is free because I believe this stuff is important, but I’m a self-employed writer and still need to make a living.

If you find these resources useful, please consider making a regular or one-off donation. Just £2 a month buys me a commentary in a year, (but due to high Paypal fees, it’s better to do it as £24 a year). A single donation of £15 buys fuel for a visit to my college library, or £45 covers my web hosting for these resources.

Click here to donate via Paypal.   Or send Colin Firth with diamonds. (Blow the diamonds, just send Colin Firth!) But don’t worry if you can’t afford anything. You are very welcome to help yourself for free. Thank you for being part of the team.

Be safe, dear friends,
