Welcome to our new Leadership Team
The Sunday Club have been looking for a new leader since last autumn. After a parent meeting in February four of us have stepped forward to take up joint leadership: Sam Brooks, Jamie Robertson, Fiona Edwards and Marianne MacGregor. We are very lucky to have Sam join the team with her experience in very successful Christian youth outreach.
We each have different experiences of life, experience of God & Church and varying levels of involvement within Sunday Schools at Mearns Kirk and elsewhere. We bring individual gifts, skills and qualities to the team. This has already allowed us to be quite creative.
# Our colourful programme has gone out to each child to show them the subject for each Sunday.
# We had very positive feedback after the first All Age Sunday Club. The children loved being altogether in the main hall, so we decided to continue to hold All Age sessions this term. This allows more space for creativity and also that the crèche are fully part of Sunday Club.
# We have decided to call crèche “Little Stars”. This will give them their own identity as a group and we aim to provide them with their own wee teaching sessions within their own area.
# We would appreciate it if parents who are not on the rota return to church as soon as their child is settled. This will allow leaders and helpers on duty to engage with the children during the session.
# We plan to organise a social get together for children and parents either this term or in summer.
# We now have a lending library, so the children can sign in & out books they wish to borrow.
Our programme until the summer break is ‘Back to Basics’ - talking to the children about Jesus, the Bible, Worship and Prayer in a colourful and playful (and sometimes messy) way.
Important Diary Dates:
# Sunday 20th May is Christian Aid Big Breakfast and Café Church in the main hall for all.
# Sunday 17th June is prize giving and the end of term. The service will be in the main hall.
# There is no Sunday Club during the remainder of June, July, August. We are back on Sunday, 2nd September
Yours in Christ.
