Every Sunday, our StC Kids programme runs in the Church Hall from 10am until 11.30am.
We call it Explorers. Why Explorers? Because the children coming to St Catherine’s will be exploring God’s word in the Bible, learning about the life of Jesus and how He can make a difference in their lives today. How will they be doing this? Through a mixture of interactive games, arts and crafts and fun songs.
Over the next few months Explorers will be busy looking at what Jesus’ life was like after that first Christmas. What was He like as a teenager? How did He know He was God’s Son? What did He say about Himself and who He was whilst He lived on earth? And how did the cute baby born in a manger end up hanging on a gruesome wooden cross on the first Easter?
The Explorers team is made up of a group of twelve volunteers with a lots of experience in children’s work. They are excited to be working together to serve and bless the children of our Church family and the wider community.
Explorers meet every Sunday between 10am and 11.30am in the Church Hall, beginning with short visit from the Vicar before getting stuck into the week’s programme and fun activities. The children will join the grown-ups in the main Church building for the end of the service and, who knows, they may even teach them a thing or two about what they’ve discovered about God!
Families are encouraged and are very welcome to join the adults for the main service whilst their children are in Explorers. Children will need to be collected at 11.30am promptly, but everyone is welcome to stay for a cuppa afterwards to get to know each other.
