Hi kids and welcome!
If you come to us on a Sunday, you’ll stay in church with the adults for the first part of our usual weekly service. You might take an active role in the service, and often have stories or songs included especially for you.
You come out into the church hall at around 11.15am for groups specifically designed for you. This part of your Sunday is called “J Team”.
J Team groups are designed to suit specific ages and we are currently using material from Scripture Union to guide the sessions:
Group 2: School Years R – 2 “Bubbles”
Group 3: School Years 3 and 4 “Splash”
Group 4: School Years 5 and 6 “Xstream
At the start of the session, these groups all meet together in the main hall for 10 mins for action songs, games, and short activities as a group. There’s also the “memory verse challenge” – a monthly memory verse with a prize each month for those who learn it and an extra special prize for those who learn all 12 for the year!
You’ll then go into your groups. We follow a theme e.g. “Bible Heroes”. There’s listening to (and sometimes helping to tell) stories from the Bible, and lots of fun craft activities, games, and music
We also have themed activities for celebrations during the year such as Mother’s/Father’s day, Easter, and Christmas.
