ALL SAINTS SUNDAY CLUB AUTUMN TERM 2023
The All Saints Club is for children and young people aged 0 to 16 and runs during the 10.00am morning service in the John Owen Barn. The weekly sessions are filled with chatting, games, faithful Bible teaching and the opportunity to show we depend on God by praying to Him. Each week children start with their parents/carers in the main church service at 10.00am.
MATTHEW GROUP (11 – 16 YEARS) Our focus is to study a book of the Bible or a theme from the Bible. This term we will be learning about the Big Story of God’s salvation plan, using a series of Bible Video Talks called, ‘The Journey’. This will run parallel to the ‘Kingdom Come’ teaching in the main Sunday services. Each week we have time to catch up, play fun games, and pray together. Our hope is to help the young people to know, believe and trust God’s Word. We want to support your ministry to your children at home, by helping them to keep putting their trust in Jesus. Many of the Matthew Group come to the Friday night 421 Youth Group for 11-18s which young people from other churches also attend. 7.30 – 9.00pm in the John Owen Barn. Up to summer 2023, Matthew group ran every Sunday, but due to a reduction in the number of available leaders, Matthew group will now run every other week during the autumn term. We hope to return to a weekly schedule in due course.
LUKE GROUP (4 – 11 YEARS) This term we will be learning about the BIG story of the bible using ‘The King, the Snake and the Promise’ curriculum. This is a great way to engage with God’s plan of salvation and we hope it will grow our children’s faith and trust in Jesus. Each week, we have a fun game or two, Bible teaching, time to chat and find out about each other, we sing songs and pray together. Our hope is to provide a happy, faithful church community time which builds the children up in their love for God and knowledge of His word. Our overall aim is that each child will trust and depend on God as they grow.
BEGINNING WITH GOD (0 – 4 YEARS) This group is for the youngest members of our church family. We begin with a time to play together. We have lots of lovely toys and our leaders are good fun! During our session we have a short bible story from The Beginners Bible. We chat about the story and then play pass the prayer. We sometimes sing and always have age-appropriate snacks! This group is currently out of action as we don’t have sufficient leaders to enable the group to run each week. Instead, Beginning with God will be available as a parent led creche where parents can take their pre-school children during the service. The service is streamed into the creche room. Tea and coffee will be available for parents. Toys will be there for little ones to play with.
