In normal times we meet in the large hall every Sunday and go into the Church for a very short time at the beginning of the service and then have lots of different activities in the hall.
We have a Combi-Television which allows us to play DVD's, connect our laptop, and watch and play songs the Storybook Bible and other Children's christian programmes.
Today, we each read a bit of the Christmas story and then had another quiz with some tricky questions which were answered very well. We finished with a prayer and some music. Next week, the boys and girls are invited to join the congregation for the Christmas Service by phoning in on the new number: 0345 388 7442 at 11.00am and entering the pin number 462824 when prompted. (The original phone number of 03300 883434 with the same pin number should still work.)
We will take a break from our Zoom meetings for a few weeks and Sunday School will restart on Sunday 10 January 2021 at 11.00am. We look forward to welcoming the children back then and if any new children would like to join us, please contact us via the home page for a link to the Zoom meeting.
Our very best wishes to everyone for a Happy Christmas.
This week we used the script (which we had previously sent out) for a discussion between the shepherds; firstly when the angel appeared and spoke to them and then after they had visited baby Jesus in the stable. The boys and girls each read parts of the story and filled in the missing words from a separate list. Some answers were quite tricky and they all did really well.
Autumn Session 2021
All departments of our Sunday School will be back to their usual routines from next Sunday 22 August at 11.00. All children from birth to 16 years should meet in the large hall. It has been a long time coming and we are looking forward to seeing everyone again. Anyone wishing to join please contact us.

Today was our last Zoom meeting for this session. As we begin the summer break, it is unclear whether we will be able to meet togethr again in the church hall after the summer holidays or if we will continue to use Zoom.
Sunday School will restart when the schools go back after the summer holidays. Due to the current situation, we will give full restart details nearer the time when we have more information available.
Although we have not posted weekly updates for some time, we have continued with a range of Bible stories and other activities each week. The numbers attending were small, as online meetings do not suit everyone, but those who did take part were really great and we enjoyed seeing them every week. They watched short DVD stories, answered questions, chatted about things and were very lively in moving about their living rooms during the action games. Well done to them all!
We do hope that we will be able to see everyone together again after the holidays and of course any children who would like to join us will be made very welcome at that time.

Today being Valentine's Day, with it's theme of love, we thought about God's love for us and for all people. We had action songs, prayers and the parable of the Lost Sheep, which Jesus told to explain to us how much God loves and cares for every single one of us. We are all important to him.
7 February 2021
Today we continued the story about Moses which we began last week. We have watched a series of short dvd's which have taken us up to the escape from Egypt and the parting of the Red Sea. All showing God's power working through Moses.
After some questions and answers about the story, we also enjoyed some action songs and games.
17 January 2021
This is the second week of this year's Zoom meetings. We watched a short video about King David and then told a further bit of the story. The children answered questions and we then went on to further discussions. We closed the meeting as always with a prayer for the week ahead.
We continue to have a mix of activities each week, including stories (sometimes short DVD's), music, crafts and games. All children are invited to come along and join us. We would be very happy to see you. Please contact us if you know of any children who would like to come along and find out more.
