ALL SAINTS CLUB FROM SEPTEMBER 2021

All Saints Club is for children and young people aged 4 to 16. For the last academic year the club ran online and we are pleased that from 5th September we return to meeting in-person during the 10.00am morning service. The weekly sessions in the John Owen Barn 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.

LUKE GROUP (4 – 11 YEARS) This autumn we will be learning from a creative teaching programme called Meet the King. This is a great way to look at Jesus in Mark’s gospel and discover more about him. Each session the children will represent what they have learnt as a picture on a banner which will build up over the weeks.  We have a fun game or two, time to chat and find out about each other, we 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 a study called Keep the Faith by David Morgan which uses the Nicene Creed, as a framework for teaching Christian truth. Each week we have time to catch up, play fun games, to be encouraged by songs and to pray together. Our hope is to encourage the young people to know, believe and trust God’s Word. We want to support your ministry to your children by helping them to keep putting their trust in Jesus. We hope that the Matthew Group will give them some friendship time as well as time to encourage one another in their faith.

HOW TO JOIN IN A registration form needs to be completed by each parent which gives permission for your children to participate. (This covers attendance at the All Saints Club and 421 Youth Group. If you have more than one child attending either ministry, they can be added to the same form).
