Antioch-Ephesus Game




  • Painter’s tape


  1. This is the principle of the Quebec-Lévis or Montreal-Longueuil game. Ask the children to stand along the wall.
  2. Divide the room in half with the tape. On one side of the room, it will be Antioch and on the other Ephesus.
  3. An animator stands between the two lines. This animator appoints one of the two cities and the other players must react accordingly. If they are on the Antioch side and the Animator (center) says Ephesus, they must run and cross the other line without being hit by the animator.
  4. If the animator says Antioch, the players must stay where they are.
  5. If a player crosses the line, he must go to the center, where there will now be two of them trying to reach those who cross.
  6. If, crossing when it’s time, a player gets hit, he joins the center.
  7. The game ends when all players have been hit (in the center).
  8. Repeat as many times as desired by changing the name of cities according to the journeys of the Apostle Paul.
  9. Remind the children that Paul made several missionary trips to proclaim the gospel.
