ALL SAINTS CLUB FROM JANUARY 2022

The All Saints Club is for children and young people aged 4 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. The first week will be on Sunday 16th January 2022. (On Sunday 9th January join us for the ‘Meet the King’ All Age Service in the John Owen Barn).

LUKE GROUP (4 – 11 YEARS) This term we will be learning from a creative teaching programme called Meals with Jesus. This is a great way to engage with Jesus’ teaching and to see how he interacts with different people in Luke’s gospel. Each session we have a fun game or two with time to chat, we learn from the Bible, listen to songs and pray together. Sometimes the children are given a task to do during the week in readiness for the next Sunday. Our hope is to provide a happy, faithful church community time which builds the children up in their knowledge of God and His word. Our overall aim is that each child will trust and depend on God as they grow.

MATTHEW GROUP (11 – 16 YEARS) Our focus is to study a book of the Bible or a theme from the Bible, using supporting materials from the Good Book Company. This term we will be learning from the Old Testament book of Exodus with the title ‘Exodus: Who is the Lord?’ Each week we have time to catch up, play fun games, learn from a Bible passage 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. We aim for the Matthew Group to have time to make friends with each other in the group so they can enjoy being part of the church community. Many of the Matthew Group go 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.
