Youth & Children's Ministry

Youth Ministry During Covid-19 lockdown.

Unfortunately at the moment we are unable to meet up as a group outside or in our church building because of Covid restrictions so we will continue to  meet online on Sunday afternoon and evenings for games, prayers and bible stuff. If you would like to join us please email the Church office with your contact details – either the email or mobile number of an adult who is responsible for you and we will forward relevant information to you.

Sunday 11th October 2020. Moses goes back to Pharoah and tries again to get him to set the Hebrew slaves free. God sends 10 different plagues to help convince Pharoah. Pharoah keeps saying they can go and then changes his mind until the final plague kills all Egyptian first born sons and animals and Pharoah finally agrees to let them go. But will he keep his word? come back next week to find out.

How to make a very simple origami frog:

Sunday 18th October2020. 

Crossing the red sea - Today we looked a map of how far Moses and the Israelites travelled after Pharoah let them go and how God guided them with pillars of flame and cloud. We made pillars of flame and cloud from rolled up paper with red tissue paper in the top of one and white tissue in the top of the other. We then folded a piece of blue paper into 3 and stuck brown paper into the central piece so we could use our lego fgures to act out the story of God helping the Israelites cross the Red Sea to escape the Egyptians when Pharoah changed his mind about letting them go.

But God had a plan - watch these videos to learn about God's plan

3Generate is the Children and Youth Assembly of the Methodist Church in Britain. Children and young people in Methodism have their own elected youth president and representatives who listen and represent their views in the wider church. Usually 3Generate meets for an exciting weekend in the autumn each year however this year this is not possible so the event has changed to run throughout the year as 3Gen365. We hope that with our young people, we will be able to be involved with this throughout the year.

There are refreshments available during the session, and opportunities for conversation, reflection and joining in with available activities. This group (similar to Messy Church) is suitable for those who are new to church, those who enjoy active worship or just want to find out a little more about Christianity.

On the 3rd Sunday of each month families are included in the morning service for all ages together.
