Junior Church

Our Junior Church takes a very active view of our faith. Using the structure of:

Ready... Steady... Go

We look at the Biblical basis of our theme (Ready), prepare to carry out some activity (Steady) and put that activity into practice (Go).

One example is looking at the Creation story and our role as stewards (Ready), preparing to undertake some practical activities as stewards of Creation (Steady) and then litter-picking in our locality (Go).

Another example is how we looked at the Lord's Prayer.

In our first week, we read the Lord's Prayer and discussed what it meant. (Ready)

In our second week, we prepared prayer stations covering different aspects of the Lord's Prayer. (Steady)

In our third week, we invited the congregation as part of the family service to come into the hall and engage with the prayer stations. (Go)

This was a great success, as illustrated buy the pictures below.

 

 

Lead us not into temptation

 

 

Thy will be done

 

 

Give us this day our daily bread

 

 

Our Father, who art in heaven

 

 

Thy Kingdom come - decorating a crown fridge magnet

 

 

Forgive us our sins as we forgive those who sin against us - sins represented by "smelly socks"

Junior Church is not just 'Sunday School' but rather our young people doing and being church together. As such, as illustrated here, Junior Church can teach 'Senior' Church in matters of faith. As a church we are very grateful for our young people's insights.
