Music Games for Church Meetings

The Last Shall Be First
Here's a game to engage the most reluctant of players. Divide the meeting into 2, 3 or 4 teams. Post butchers paper on the wall in front of each team and a texta. The aim of the game is for teams to list as many songs as they can in three minutes. (Optional: Give each team 3 minutes to list as many songs as they can to get them started. They will probably exhaust the list quickly once the game gets underway, at which time spontaneity will come into play).

Each team lines up behind the first competitor, in front of their paper. On your "go" the first competitors from each team write the name of a song. When complete, they dash back to pass the texta on, and then stand at the back of the team. The second player must write the name of a song which begins with the last word of the song before. Team members can help each other out by calling out their ideas.

For example:
1st player - There was an old woman who swallowed a fly
2nd player - Fly me to the moon
3rd player - Moon River
and so on.

Lord of the Dance
Dance with the Spirit
Spirit of the living God
God has chosen me etc...

If players are unable to continue the thread, the team may cross the last song out and replace it with a title that can be built upon.

Have Fun!
