The All Saints Club is for children and young people aged 0 to 16 and runs in the John Owen Barn during the 10.00am morning service at Fordham Church. The term starts on Sunday 5th May 2024. 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 going Back to Basics with the help of material from Mustard Seed Ministries. As we work through the series, we will be asking the question, ‘How do the basics help me remain a disciple of Jesus when many around me don’t believe?’  Each week we have time to catch up with each other, 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. Once a month, Matthew group stay in the service until after the sermon, then have a sermon discussion group and tasty snacks.


LUKE GROUP (4 – 11 YEARS) This term we are focusing on the beginning of the Old Testament, beginning with Noah and ending with Jacob using The Biggest Story Bible curriculum.  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 have lots of lovely toys and our leaders are good fun! During the session we have a short Bible story from The Beginners Bible curriculum. We chat about the story and then play pass the prayer. We sometimes sing and always have age-appropriate snacks! During the summer term, due to a shortage of leaders, this group will sometimes merge with Luke group.
