If you are in primary 1 to primary 7, come along to Jaffa. We have great fun with lots of games, crafts, stories, songs, drama, and lots more. We like to tell you about Jesus and the bible in a really fun, enjoyable way through games, dramas and songs. If you can’t make this week, don’t worry, just come along when you can.
We have had a great start to the session this year. So many children in and out of our doors, we started with record numbers this year. It is great to see the church full of noise and enthusiasm. We even welcomed back a couple of our primary 7’s from last year as very enthusiastic Young Leaders and they are doing a great job.
We have a busy couple of months before we break up for Christmas. On 12th November we will be taking some of the children to the Sightline Christian Arts Festival in St. Marks church Aberdeen for an hour of fun, songs, puppets and stories. On 17th November we will be holding our annual Children In Need fun night to raise funds and awareness and on 26th November we will be running a stall at the Christmas Fair in the church as well as, most importantly, helping out Santa in his Grotto. Look out for our darling little Elves. And then, of course, we will be finishing on 15th December with a great Christmas Party.
In between all the busyness, we will be learning about prayer, getting on with each other and how to follow Jesus in our lives. As always, this is done in a fun and entertaining way which I hope the children enjoy.
Many thanks to all our Leaders, young and not so young. You make my job so much easier.
We are busy this year, but we have never turned a child away, so anyone interested in coming along to Jaffa will be made most welcome.
If anyone would like more information on Jaffa give me a call (730955).
