The Sunday Club meets at Church times during the school term and all children are most welcome.
Messy Church is:
Messy Church is a form of church for children and adults that involves creativity, celebration and hospitality.
Watch notice board for dates.
It’s all-age and it’s fun.
It’s a place for people at all stages of their faith journey and of any age.
It models and promotes good ways of growing as a family: a nuclear family, an extended family, and a global and local church family.
It typically includes a welcome, a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through getting messy; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song, games and similar; and a sit-down meal together at tables.
In the words of Claire Dalpra of The Sheffield Centre: Messy Church is an all-age fresh expression of church that offers counter-cultural transformation of family life through families coming together to be, to make, to eat and to celebrate God.
A Holiday Club for children who have attended Primary School this last session Primary 1 – 7.
Watch the church notice board for details mid summer.
Hot Chocolate Club
The Hot Chocolate Club operates every second Friday during school term time from 7 – 9pm and caters for children from P7 to S2/3. A variety of activities are enjoyed and guest presenters are particularly welcomed.
Our small group of P6/7,s up to S2’s are continuing to meet on the first Friday of the month during lockdown thanks to Daniel and his mum Lyndsey.
Before the meeting those who are attending were delivered a bag with instructions, a bingo card and some smarties, all of which were to be part of the meeting. I’m sure not eating the smarties was a challenge for some.
We started with the smarties. Now this is a great reflective game that all, young or old, can do and is great to do at the moment to help us all to look back at our week plus we get to eat the smarties. Each smartie is an emotion, so which ever you pick you have to think of a time that evokes that emotion. Here’s the list
Blue – Sad; Pink – worried; Purple – tired; Green – jealous; Orange – excited; Red – mad; Yellow – happy; Brown – disgusted. Each of the group chose a smartie and then chatted about the memory. Have a go, it certainly helps you to look back at the week and helps you focus and move on.
We then had a snappy game of bingo with the winners being promised a treat from our tuck shop. We ended our meet with a round of charades to much hilarity by all.
Great fun was had by all with many laughs and instructions given for June’s meeting to bring on the talents.
