Friday Church meets at 6.00 pm – 7.15 pm (term time only)
All children aged 5 – 12 years are welcome, initially and ideally accompanied by a responsible adult. We enjoy bible stories, discussions, activities and some supper – (contributions are always appreciated). This is an opportunity for the children to build friendships with each other and learn more about Christianity.
On Good Friday the children did another Easter drama, covering the events of Holy Week and also including some hymns and readings.
The children did a short drama, “Papa Panov” with lively rehearsals and costumes as part of a service just before Christmas, then enjoyed their party in the New Year.
Starting with Mary, the children have been learning about some of the saints whose “days” occur during September and October. They then drew round a different child each week and created a collage picture of the saints, Hildegard, Michael, Fancis of Assisi, Wilfred of York and Luke. These can be seen at the back of church.
In April, the children (and adults) of Friday Church performed a drama of the Last Supper. After a very messy dress rehearsal the week before, we left it in the hands of God. The children “came up trumps” and performed well. They finished by singing one of their songs – ably assisted by the congregation – and closed with their louder version of the prayer that Jesus taught us. Well done kids! We are really proud of you!
