Recipient Org: Description As an organisation our aim is to reach out to those in the community around us. We strongly believe that God is encouraging us to look outwards and engage in the community, as we actively consider how we should be living as ‘church’ in the 21st Century. Meeting peoples’ needs and bringing the Good News of Jesus to them is what we aim to do. We seek to engage and support all people in are local community regardless of belief. We also aim to reach out to people of all ages. To achieve this, as an organisation we run a host of activities that are aimed at different groups of people. We run a weekly baby group for mums and babies. We also run four busy toddler sessions every week during term time for parents and children up to pre-school age. Around 20-30 mums, dads and toddlers attend each of these session. We aim to provide a safe and stimulating environment with lots of toys, singing, books and activities to help babies and toddlers learn and grow in those important developmental years. We also run a range of activities for children. Every Friday evening through term time we we run a club called KidZone from 6.00-7.30pm. This action packed club is open to all children from reception to school year six. There is plenty of fun, games, crafts and even a tuck shop! KidZone is open to all children irrespective of faith or belief, our aim is to reach out to our community and support children and families in the local area. Our other main children’s club meets on a Sunday morning during the church service and is called ‘Club Sunday’. Additionally, every summer holiday we run a Holiday Bible Club. This runs from 9.30am - 12noon and is open to all aged 5-11 each year we get around 100 children attend. The week contains plenty of games, songs and some exciting Bible stories. As an organisation we are in the process of trying to grow our youth work further. For many years we have run a Friday night youth club. The club runs from 7.30pm-9.00pm and is open to all those in school years 7 to 11. We regularly have between 35-50 young people attend each week, however there are over 100 different young people that use the club each year. We attempt to provide a wide range of activities for the young people who attend in order to cater for everyone. Therefore the young people have their choice of activity from games such as pool, table tennis, air hockey as well as music, video games, board games and card games. There is also the option for more active games, such as football, in our hall. This is contrasted with the quiet chill out space of ‘The Lounge,’ providing comfy seating and a place to sit and chat. In addition to our busy Friday night, we also run an after school drop-in club for secondary school students on a Thursday, as well as another drop-in for sixth form students on a Monday. These operate on a similar format to our Friday night but on a smaller scale. All our sessions are open to all young people, wether from other faiths or no faith at all. We also run other groups in the week, including a group during the church’s Sunday morning service, for any young people who are looking to learn more about the Christian faith. In addition to all we do for children and young people, we also run a number of activities aimed and reaching out and supporting older people, including several groups as well as a team that regularly visits elderly folk in care homes. One group that meets on a weekly basis is Rendezvous, this group has a weekly attendance of around 20-30 with the majority of attendees being in their 70s or 80s.
