This will be meeting every Sunday in Church 10.30 am to 11.45 am.
Children and Youth Ministry
One of my favourite bible passages is ‘The Armour of God’ in Ephesians 6. I have the pleasure of exploring this text in Sunday club and Messy Church in recent weeks. The Sunday club enjoyed making the armour of God out of cardboard boxes and talking about each items part in protecting us. The children worked really hard to make each piece so that JJ could wear the armour in church at the end of our session. At Messy Church, talking about battles and protection on a level that the young people could understand, basically looked like a small origami knight and balloon swords!! As well as making their own shields of Faith and belts of truth, the families enjoyed a messy time together in the sun. Followed by a yummy meal together. The message at both was the same. God is our protection, and we need to wear his armour every day. It is rather unnerving to think of these spiritual battles, but the reality of them is we need to be prepared. And we need to encourage the young people to pray in all things –
Ephesians 6:18 “Pray on every occasion, as the Spirit leads. For this reason, keep alert and never give up;”
Our lovely Youth helper Sarah has made us proud with fantastic exam results! She has now left for uni and will be so missed – she has promised to visit whenever she can and remains in our prayers as she settles. Tuesday clubs are back after the summer break! We have started to look at Harvest this week and may have hidden some Harvest Mice around the church – so keep an eye out for them!!
There is much to look forward to this October. Messy Church is on the 14th, FISH is coming during the half term and CYM will have our normal Light Party celebrations. Look out for details of our alternative Halloween party – where all things light and bright are invited!! Please keep all of the children and youth ministry in your prayers.
