Tiny Tots, (toddler group)
9.30am - 11am, Tuesday, Wednesday
A welcoming environment that has become known to many in our parish over the years. As well as a time for the children to play, there is also the opportunity for parents and carers to talk over a cup of tea. We have a good range of toys and activities. An important part of the session for many is our Bible thought and singing. We also have special activities such as our sponsored toddle, to raise money for a good cause, as well as celebrations at Easter and Christmas. At present we are quite subscribed, but if we can fit you in we will! Please contact our church office.
Explorers, (age 7-11)
6.15pm - 7.15pm, Tuesday
Explorers is for children 7 to 11 years old (school years 3, 4, 5 and 6). We meet, term time only, on Tuesday evenings from 6.15pm to 7.15pm in St John's church hall. As our children get older, they start to ask questions about their faith. At Explorers we explore Christianity and the meaning of the Bible. We learn about Bible stories and characters through games, drama, music, reading and crafts. We aim to teach the Bible in a fun and practical way, encouraging the children to think for themselves and develop their understanding and faith.
We use XStream from the Scripture Union Light series. The teaching equips the Explorers to know Jesus Christ, to learn from God and to live boldly for him. The Scripture Union "Light” series gives them the opportunity to learn and think and to discover who God is, what he is like, what he does, and how we can get involved in that?
