Church @ 4
Church @ 4 met for the first time on Sunday 8th September 2013. We had a great time learning about the Parable of the Sower. We started off in the Meeting Place making coasters and placemats with leaves and a verse from James 1, 'Accept the word that God plants in your hearts'. We did some potato printing and made beaks to wear on our heads. We then went into Church and had a short service with a video, stories, singing and some interactive prayers. Finally, we all had a picnic tea and shared some time together.
The service was supported by many members of our congregation and everyone joined in with all of the activities. The only slight hitch that we had was a lack of music, so we were reliant on CDs. In future, I pray that we will have some volunteers who are able to play the piano.
I really feel that this is a key part of our ministry to everyone, young and old and will help us grow stronger together as a family of God.
Annual Report - February 2018
Church @ 4 continues to be popular with people coming along from across the generations. We always start with crafts in the meeting place followed by worship in Church and then tea.
Church @ 4 was very quiet in summer and in December, so we have decided that we won't hold Church @ 4 in April, August and December.
This is a massive part of our ministry in this Church as for some families this is the only church that they attend.
