Kids & Youth
KidsTeam (Under Covid-19 Restrictions):
For the months of July and August Kidsteam is meeting as a group on a Sunday at 9:30 - that same time as the first wroship Service. We meet in the Centre and a parents/adults can choose either to accompany their children or attend the service in church. We are still learning the same way with some changes to make sure we stay safe. Families must book for these services so we keep within the numbers allowed and have ‘track and trace’ information available.
KidsTeam (Under Normal Circumstances):
Under normal circumstances, we meet on a Sunday as part of the morning worship service @ 10:30 am. We begin in church with the whole church family and then go into the Centre after the second song to have our own activities. We use the resources from ‘Urban Saints’ called ‘Energize’, written for kids from pre-school to P7. We use lots of different kinds of activities – crafts, videos, songs, stories, drama and games to learn about the Gospel. Everyone is welcome including mums, dads, grannies etc who can stay with wee ones if they like. We can also provide a creche if needed. Just asks the folk at the door! And just remember, God allows wriggles in our church!
APC Messy Church:
We have been unable to meet during the COVID-19 pandemic which has been very sad, but we are all looking forward to getting back together as soon as we can. We usually meet around every 2 months on a Sunday afternoon from 3:30 - 5:00 pm. and all families are welcome – adults must accompany any children who attend as Messy Church is very much a family event.
We choose a theme that might be seasonal one, like Christmas or Harvest, or based around a story or a character like David or Joseph. We learn using songs, watching videos, hearing stories and making crafts - we even start with a warm up with Mandy, so make sure you wear your trainers! At the end we all sit down together and have a light meal together – almost always finishing with the kids’ favourite – ice cream with sprinkles and chocolate sauce!!! Messy Church is great for everybody and a fun way to learn together about the Good News of Jesus.
