It’s all change for our 3 to 11 year olds as we launch “Together Time”

22 September 2016

star-teamThis Sunday (Sept 25th) sees the launch of our brand new children’s All together service. Specifically designed for children aged 3 to 11 this will take place on the 4th Sunday of each month and will be headed up by Cas Stoodley and Maria Petre.

In a break from tradition, rather than going straight into church the new service will start at 10:30am in the Music Room. It will begin with a starter activity related to a particular topic; this month that’s ‘Being thankful for what we have’. Then, together, we’ll all be exploring Thankfulness through the eyes of the Israelites in the desert, and considering how easy it can be to focus on what we’ve had rather than being thankful for what we do have.

safeguarding%20children_mThis Sunday there’ll also be an opportunity to gather together gifts for our harvest offering, and of course to worship God through music and prayer.

Month by month we’ll be examining different topics in loads of different ways; through drama, discussion and games, each session finishing off with a time of reflection. This will not only give us all the chance to ask ourselves what we have learnt, but also to think and pray about how God might be calling us to put our Thankfulness (or whatever else we have focussed on) into practice.

A central part of each session will be a take-home sheet with passages to read and questions to reflect on; something we hope parents and children will do together. Hopefully, next month, some may even be brave enough to share what they have done or learnt since we all last met.

So this Sunday please drop your children off in the Music Room from 10:20. If they’re under 7 years old you will be given a pick-up number which you will need to hand in when you collect them at the end of the service.

We are all really looking forward to this new adventure, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact either of us.
