Sunday Club: Advent 2019 – Easter 2020
The Sunday Club is for children aged 3 up to Primary 7 and meets every Sunday. It runs alongside the Worship service which takes place in the church. Occasionally the Sunday Club remains in the Worship service when an intergenerational service is taking place.
Children gather with the full congregation in the church at 10.30 am and after a short time in Worship they leave with the Sunday Club leaders to go to their own activities. Both the Sunday Club and the Worship service finish at 11.30 am. This means that adults who are accompanying their children for Sunday Club can remain in the Worship service and collect their children following Worship.
In February 2020 there will be more information about how the Sunday Club will be developing in the coming year. In the meantime, if you would like to get involved in running the Sunday Club for a month as part of a team, then please contact Jayne Scott by email to discuss further. Your commitment would be for one month in the year and as part of a team.
All enquiries welcome!!
During December Sunday Club will have the following pattern:
1 December (Advent 1): Meet in basement of Manse at 10.30 am for filming nativity scenes
(for 15 Dec service).
8 December (Advent 2): Meet in Church Hall at 10.30 am for Christmas party
15 December (Advent 3): Join with full congregation for worship which includes short films
of the nativity story.
22 December (Advent 4): Join with the full congregation for the Carol Service.
29 December (Christmas 1): Join with the full congregation for Worship.
Note: Sunday Club will remain in the church and not leave for separate activities on 15, 22 and 29 December.
During the times when children are with the full congregation, there is a Toy Box corner in the East Transept (turn left at the end of the left-hand aisle). Children are welcome to use the Toy Box. Adults accompanying the children are asked to sit close by to provide supervision.
From Sunday 5 January 2020, the Sunday Club will meet in the Basement of the Manse where there is a room which is set out for the dedicated purpose of children’s work.
The way into the room is through the blue door at the rear of the manse which leads into a small courtyard. Once in the courtyard, turn immediately left and go through the second blue door(this is also the entrance to the Church Office). Follow the signs inside to the Sunday Club rooms.
For children aged 0–2 years, there is a space with resources provided in the Sunday Club rooms where they can play under adult supervision. At present we don’t have leaders who can supervise this, so ask accompanying adults to provide supervision for their own children.
Note: Children aged 0–2 years accompanied by adults are welcome to opt either to remain in the church go to the crèche space in the Sunday Club Rooms. There is easy access in and out of the worship space through the back door in the East Transept.
