Adventurers Plus (Years 5 and 6) meet during the 10am Family Service, except roughly once a month when they join with the rest of the congregation in an All Age service.
This group meets in the Meeting Room in Church House.
Our sessions are based around the Scripture Union ‘Light’ material with occasional help from various other sources, in particular www.barnabasinchurches.org.uk. These resources provide a mixture of fun activities and ways of accessing Bible teaching that is relevant to the children’s age and circumstances.
At the All Age service the different children and youth groups take turns in leading prayers and doing the Bible readings in church.
On the week before or after their turn to lead, the children and their leaders and helpers often go across the road to Beulah Lodge Residential Home during the Sunday morning service. They are there for about half an hour leading a short ‘service’ of readings, prayers and a song or two, and chatting with the residents.
Adventurers Plus leaders and helpers are a team of volunteers who are very committed to the children and enjoy helping them explore the Bible and grow in their understanding and experience of the Christian faith. Chats with parents are very welcome, too! All leaders and helpers have been DBS (formerly CRB) checked.
