Welcome to Glo & SPARK - our Sunday Morning groups for all children up to school year 6.
The Glo team is led by Marion Barton and the SPARK team by our Children & Families worker, Jo Birkby. The amazing team of volunteers for both groups have a good mix of genders and age ranges, all having a heart for Children's Ministry.
Each week families arrive in church from 9.30am to enjoy a drink and some delicious pastries or fruit, catching up with friends before the service start at 10am. After around half an hour of worshipping together as a family, we then separate into our age-focused groups.
Our Glo group explore the Bible through ‘The Rhyme Bible Storybook’ and having fun with song and themed play.
Our SPARK group explore the Bible through ‘The Jesus Storybook Bible’, letting off some steam with a game and then some ‘chat and catch’ with God, using their journals to record these conversations.
We also share ideas with parents of how we, as a church, can partner with them in nurturing in ourselves and our children:
• a love of God's word,
• pursuing a life-long relationship with Jesus and
• developing a growing sense of how God's Holy Spirit empowers us to love and serve others.
We pray that all we do will help our children to Live the Full Life, developing and nurturing their faith as they Discover it, Live it and Give it away!
If you are new to the area or considering coming to church for the first time with your children, you can speak Jo with any questions you might have via e-mail or on 07721379513.
