Children’s Work

Starchasers
Starchasers
[Starts again on Sunday 24th September]
2nd, 4th & 5th Sundays 10:45am-12:15pm, Paget Christian Centre
Starchasers is our parish wide Sunday morning club for children in Year 1 to 6. Our aim is to tell the children about God in a creative & engaging manner – and to have a lot of fun too.
Each session features a range of activities including games, crafts, bible stories, creative prayer and small group time. And at the end of each term we award prizes for the kids who’ve earned the most stars.
Starchasers is usually on the second, fourth and fifth Sundays of each month during term time. We meet at the Paget Christian Centre and each session runs from 10.45am to 12.15pm.

Kids Club is a Bible club for primary school aged kids we run in partnership with London City Mission (LCM) on Friday afternoons. At Kids Club we look at a different Bible story each week and have songs, games and crafts based on the day’s theme. We can also collect children from St. Andrew’s School or St. Mary Magdalene Primary School and then parents can pick them up at 5:15pm at the Paget.

Bemerton Soul 2018 will be in July.
Bemerton Soul is a summer club with activities for children and young people. For those aged 5-11 we will have our Children’s Club with games, sports and arts & crafts. For young people aged 11-18 we will have football school and art workshops each afternoon.
We’ll end our Bemerton Soul week with a party and barbecue on Sunday afternoon to which all local people are invited.

Assemblies
We currently help with assemblies at two local schools – St. Andrew’s School & Thornhill School. This term we’ll be thinking about Communion and Christmas.
If you would like us to help with assemblies at your school, or any other type of school’s work, then please contact our Children’s Worker, Heather Parker (contact details at the bottom of the page).

Events
Throughout the year we hold various one-off events. The main events we organise are:

Bemerton Carols: After Bemerton Soul in the Summer we have Bemerton Carols in the Winter! Bemerton Carols 2016 took place on Saturday 17th December, 3-5pm at the Paget Christian Centre (on Bingfield Park).

Pancake Party: This is one of our biggest events of the year and is open to all local families and children. Sadly this year there will be no Pancake Party, we hope to be back in 2018.

2nd July 2016 10.30am – Parish Starchasers Service:
In July we had our Parish-wide Starchasers service at St. Andrew’s Church. At the service the Starchasers kids shared a little of what they’ve learnt over the term and it was a chance for all three churches in the Parish to come together and worship God.

Check back here for more information on these events closer to the time.
