The J.C. Club meets in the Cantelupe Centre during the main Sunday morning service on the first Sunday of each month. There is a regular core of 8-10 children ranging in age from 2-13 years old. We appreciate their enthusiasm, commitment and willingness to find out more about God.
The J.C. Club uses the Scripture Union ‘Bubbles’, ‘Splash’ and ‘Extreme’ books.These booklets help the four leaders with themes, craft ideas and games to use with the children. At the end of the service we all go back into church to show our work and talk about what we have been doing. We usually perform a song with actions.
We try to involve the children in other aspects of church life, including, church lunches, a Christmas party and a sponsored event – this year “The Big Hymn Sing” for Christian Aid Week.
These children are the future of our church, so it is really important to nurture their interest and faith.
If anyone is interested in helping out (acting as an extra pair of hands) or teaching in the J.C. Club on a rota – you wouldn’t be committed to every week – please speak to any of the leaders. It is a very fulfilling and rewarding role.
