General Information on 'Restoration Station' - the Scripture Union programme for this year
Well, we’ve been and gone and done it! And what a success it was! We had 31 children register and an average attendance of 25/26 each day. And there was an amazing team of leaders who gave of their time and talents, not only over the week but in all the dedicated preparation time beforehand. We are very thankful for that, too.
We had great fun learning about 5 people who needed ’restored’ in some shape or form: sometimes physical restoration but sometimes ‘in their heart’, as one little girl said, very astutely, it must be said! We had singing, teaching, team chants, theme-based crafts, aerobics, quizzes, games, drama and, of course, not forgetting the messy challenge each day!
We finished off the week by encouraging the children to come to church – which a good few did - and Lesley, with the help of the kids, told the congregation what ‘Restoration Station’ had been about. We even taught the adults a couple of our songs! And then it was all rounded off with a great BBQ, thanks to Michelle and her band of helpers.
