SUMMER - YOUNG PEOPLE
We have a wonderful group of children at Christ Church and some great connections with children in the community. We want to continue to grow these relationships and share the good news of Jesus with more and more children. This can only happen with your support. Below are several opportunities coming up that need your support. Please read through with an open and prayerful mind and consider whether you might be able to help.
Over the summer we give our regular team a well-deserved break. In order to be able to continue running our children’s groups, we need help. Are you able to help on one Sunday (24th July, 31st July, 7th August, 14th August, 21ST August, 28th August) in either crèche, 3-11 year olds and youth. To run, a crèche team needs 3 people each week, 3-11s need 2 others to help Jess and youth needs 1 other to help Alex.
In order to run 3 fun mornings of Bible teaching, games and craft, we need a team of people. Teams are required 9-12.30 am on Tuesday 2nd, 9th, 16th August. Whether you can make one, two or all of the sessions and whatever your skill set, there will be a role for you. The number of children we can welcome and size of these mornings depends on how many team members we have so please do consider getting involved.
We would love to be able to offer some 1-1 support to our children who have additional needs. What this will look like will vary depending on the child and the help you feel able to give but if you have a heart for working with children in this supportive role then please do think about whether you could come along to Summer Blast in this capacity or on Sunday mornings rota over the summer or from September.
We really need a couple more leaders for Sunday mornings from the beginning of July. These are during the 10.30 service. Whether you would feel comfortable leading a session or being there as a helper please do consider and pray and speak to Alex (assistant youth) if you would be interested in finding out more.
We are creating some exciting summer plans for our young people this summer. We would love to help build relationships between our young people and the ‘not so young people’ in church! We would like to invite anyone who wants to come and enjoy some activities with our youth this summer to get in touch. If we get enough volunteers we would like to run some larger activities around the town including a fun ‘Disguised or Recognised’ game (this will involve some sitting around town, some disguises and lots of fun!) Youth sessions will be Wednesdays 10th, 17th, 24th, 31st August (timings tbc)
If you would like to know more about any of the above then please do contact Jess at firstname.lastname@example.org or message/call 07776596561
