 Activities include:

 

  • Welcoming 'icebreakers'
  • Creative Bible storytelling
  • Craft
  • Theme related play
  • Small group Bible talks

 Registration takes place in the cafe area from 10.15am. Parents will be issued with a 'Registered Child Card' for safekeeping and for return when collecting their child at 12.00pm.
 
 Families then move into the church where an Altogether Time at the start of the service sets the scene for the children's groups.
 
 Parents are encouraged to sit near the front of the church with their children during the Altogether Time before accompanying them to their group.

 

Children are the responsibility of their parents/carers before going into their groups and after collection from them. Please ensure they are kept safe whilst on the premises by supervising them before and after sessions. 
Thank you!

Spring Term 2018

Sunday Teaching

 

Series Aims

The teaching this term takes us on a journey through lent,
looking at who Jesus is and what he came to achieve. We
are challenged to examine our lives, see how we are living
and how we can follow Jesus.​​

  • To understand that Jesus is the Son of God, and we
    should listen to Him
  • To know that Jesus came for us all and the
    appropriate response to this news is repentance, a
    new life and a change of heart.
  • To teach that Jesus calls us all to follow Him and that
    will mean taking up our own cross to follow and letting
    things go
  • To understand that there is an ongoing battle
    between good and evil but love will win

TEAMBUILDERS

We are planning to run our annual Holiday Club TEAMBUILDERS with our Opening Service on 22nd July and
the Holiday Club running 25th - 27th July. The children will encounter stories from both the Old and New Testaments that
illustrate what it means to work together. These stories help the children focus on the value of teamwork in life and, in particular,
as a community of people journeying with Jesus. In addition, the children will meet Jesus and discover what he did for them
and how they can become part of Jesus’ team.


Don’t forget to put the date in your diary and if you can help please let me know! More information to follow.
