Youth, Children’s & Family Work
On Friday 5th January 11.00 am - 1.00 pm we will be holding a ‘Teddy Bears Picnic’ for the families of the Church and groups who use the building, but please feel free to come and join in the fun, games, crafts, stories and food. The event is free, but don’t forget your Teddy Bear.
‘Who Let The Dads Out?’ launches on Saturday 20th January 10.00 am - 12 noon,
‘Who Let The Dads Out?’ is a growing movement that resources churches to reach out to dads, father figures and their children. They believe that to "turn the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers" (Malachi 4:6, NIV 1984) is a powerful way ‘to make ready a people prepared for the Lord’ (Luke 1:17).
They want to see churches creating spaces where dads, father figures and their children can have fun together, and is founded on the Christian principle of wanting to demonstrate God’s love to communities.
Our sessions will be on the 3rd Saturday of each month with toys, games and crafts for the children, whilst the men get the opportunity to spend time with their children and talk with other men about ‘blokey’ things like cars, sport and tools! and most importantly, have food!
Ideally this group will be run by the men of the Church, so if you feel you could help then please speak to me. I’m looking for cooks, tea/coffee makers, welcomers and men to generally chat with others. This is a great opportunity to meet men within our community and engage with them whatever your age.
Have a look at the 'Who let the dads out' website.
Please keep an eye out for more new ventures starting in the new year.
