2-11s @ St Ebbe's
Our main aim is to help perents disciple their children. We are only a small part in this role. Having your children for one hour a week compared to the many, many hours you have with them.
To do this we have three aims for all our groups;
- get to know Jesus better
- get to know each other better
- have fun
We teach the Bible, learn the Bible, pray, mess about and sing songs.
And we do it in the following groups:
Woddlers (walking to Key Stage 1)
With the help of MR PIP – our sleepy friend –we cover most major Bible stories in a two year cycle.
MR PIP tells us the stories and helps us remember them with actions and craft.
We also sing lots of songs and try and learn some key Bible passages.
The Farm (Key Stage 1)
The Farm is for all KS1 children. With the help of MR PIPS older and bigger cousin! We look at different Bible books using CLICK and KIDSWISE materials. We have a lot of fun splitting in smaller groups trying to understand and apply each story to ourselves.
Using A.C.T.S each week to help us. About every story we ask the children
A – What in this stroy makes them ADORE (say wow) God more?
C – What from this stroy makes you CONFESS (say sorry) to God
T – What from this story makes you say THANKS (thanks!) to God
S – SUPPLICATION!!! What from this story will you need to ask God HELP this week
We also sing and try to learn LOTS of the Bible together. (see parents notes to see which ones)
We also sing!
The Zoo (Key stage 2)
The ZOO – aims to do the same as the FARM – to make home life easier both groups cover the same Bible passages. But we push things further and make it more relevant to their age and stage.
