Junior church meets at St Stephen’s on Sunday mornings. We begin our worship by joining in with the main service, usually for a children’s song or a song with actions, followed by a prayer, then we congregate in the junior church room for a talk about a story from the bible (usually following the same theme as the main church service).
We enjoy drama, Godly plays or craft to help us to remember the story or theme each week. We often have worksheets such as a wordsearch, puzzle, mini quiz or colouring activity.
On drier days we use the lawn to play football, parachute games and treasure hunts. Our aim is to learn in a fun environment.
We enjoy refreshments of fruit, crisps, biscuits etc. In the new year we have a trip to the local pantomime, and we are included in many of the church activities, especially parties!
Pauline, Laine, Ellen and Linda are our leaders.
