CHILDREN YOUTH AND FAMILIES


St Peters has a very dedicated team of volunteers who support and run activities for children and families alongside the Youth and Family Worker, Debs Williams.

Current activities include a Sunday Club which meets in the church during the 10am service, various uniformed organisations such as Rainbows and Brownies, and a thriving toddlers' service.

The main aim of all activities and services for children and families is to ensure that people feel comfortable in church, have fun and are able to explore Christianity in their own way, be that through play, prayer, dramas, art, music or games.

We are always open to fresh ideas for supporting and engaging the local community so please contact us with your thoughts!

St Peter's take working with children and families very seriously and take care to be up to date with all safeguarding procedures.

For further information please contact Debs Williams. Debs is a qualified Primary School Teacher and Community Artist. She has worked as a Youth Worker in both churches and Local Authority Youth Centres in South Gloucestershire, for the past 10 years. Debs has extensive experience of supporting children with additional needs and autism in particular.

SUNDAY CLUB

Helping children and young people engage in the Christian faith in a way that is age appropriate.

 
Group Coloring

The Sunday Club is run every Sunday from 10-11am when the children then join the rest of the congregation in church to show off what they have been working on!

The Sunday Club welcomes children of all ages but if you intend to leave your child they must be at least 4 years old and be able to use the toilet.

Each week in Sunday Club we help to engage children and young people in the Christian faith in a way that seeks to foster their understanding of what it means to be a Christian. They will learn Bible stories and Christian ethics, and most importantly do so in a fun, supportive and nurturing environment.

In addition to the regular Sunday Club meetings, children are also invited to take part in the Uniformed Organisations' Church Parades and at other child-specific services throughout the year, such as Harvest and Mothering Sunday. Children are encouraged to take an active part in the service, for example doing readings or collections.

The Sunday Club put on a Nativity Play each Christmas.

GUIDING AT ST PETER'S

 

One of the most dynamic of the groups which currently use St Peter's Church Hall belongs to GirlguidingUK. 

Brownies, Guides and the Senior Section form a large and adventurous cohort of girls who endeavour to do their best in every situation. Encouraged by their qualified leaders, they shape their beliefs, gain confidence and develop self-reliance. In addition they learn to serve their communities, respect their environment and each other, and achieve their individual potential.

From gaining Brownie badges to facing numerous Guiding challenges, girls and their leaders have an enormous amount of fun. For instance, have you ever made armpit fudge?! Or made sommores on an open barbecue? Challenged yourself to climb mountains? Worked towards Baden-Powell awards? Camped out in Serbia or back-packed across Europe? Completed the DofE award? Become a Queen's Guide? Well, members of St Peter's Brownies, Guides and Rangers will have done all these things and much, much more!

If you would like your daughter to join this thriving, adventurous movement, please register her interest by clicking here to take you to the girlguidingUK website, then follow the links for the Information For Parents.

While you are about it why not join in the fun? We have a wide range of volunteer posts from unit leaders to occasional helpers. Please register your interest on the girlguidingUK website, or contact us for further information at concordedivision@girlguidingbsg.org.uk
