Kids & Youth

 

Kidsteam  and TNL (The Next Level)

We have two groups for our younger age children and young people.  Kidsteam is for pre school-P6 children and TNL is for P7-S2/3 early teens. 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. However we are starting a whole church initiative on The Bible for seven weeks, beginning on 10 October.  After that, TNL will be using their own age-approp teaching programme.

 

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 ask the folk at the door!  And just remember, God allows wriggles in our church!     There is no need to book but children require to be counted in the numbers and can be registered thru the QR code  on display or low-tech sheet available at the church entrance.

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.
