The older children (year 7+) meet up 6-7.30 pm on the first Sunday of the month. We share a meal, and then join in various fun activities or watch a video clip and have a debate. Sometimes we have other events like fundraisers, Christmas parties, chip shop walks and cardboard campouts. Here are a couple of examples:
Body of Christ
We started with a fun game of foot Pictionary. Then we played a version of “pin the tale on the donkey” that showed us how the hands need the eyes/mouth. Next we thought about what we were good at and how we could serve others with those talents, making a shortbread body part to represent it e.g. good listeners made ears, good helpers made hands, errand runners made feet. We put the parts together to make quite an interesting body, before eating him!
We met secretly, early in the morning, in an upper room. We made crosses out of sticks. Each of us had a
“secret identity” matching a real persecuted Christian and we told our stories. We heard the story of Eon a little girl who told her teachers that her parents had a bible and never saw her parents again. Then we prayed for our persecuted Christians and shared bread and wine together. We tried to memorize bible verses written on stones. A delivery of “sock bibles” arrived – tiny bibles that could be hidden in our socks. At the end we had a raid by the secret police who took away our leader.
