Adventure Church

As part of the Adventure Church Facebook Group you will see up-to-date news of future and/or past events: FACEBOOK LINK
Adventure Church meets on Tuesday evenings at Week St Mary Church. It is a response to the needs of families who want their children to receive some Christian education in a fun environment including eating together, working together and having fun together.

Every week there is some sort of Adventure activity, a simple meal which the children prepare for themselves, a bible or moral story and a prayer. The format has proved popular since it's inception in June 2014 and families have found it easier to fit into their lives than the traditional Sunday School which it replaces.

With the sun shining down the outdoor activity was a great success.

Feeling God's world all around us. Lying in the grass and listening to our bodies.

Following the story of the Good Samaritan the children made their 'neighbour' a sandwich.

After their Easter break, Adventure Church returned to learn how
to carry out an Archaeological dig, in the Rectory Garden.
They all took great care to follow instructions given by
Rob Isherwood and Sue and were congratulated on their
observational skills, finding lots of intriguing tiny man made
objects including some parts of clay pipes and some pretty china.
The garden was returned to its original condition afterwards.
Many thanks to Pat and Rev Tony for allowing us to dig up their
garden and for hosting tea in the Benefice Room which we left a
bit crumby.
A draft programme for May is available on our Facebook Group
page. Please ask to join Week St Mary Adventure Church to keep
up to date with our activities as part of this closed Group.

Tuesday 2nd February 2016
Dr Rob Isherwood came to talk to us about finding traces of people from the past. There were lots of things to touch and see!

Long before there were books and the internet, people lived in our land. Most of them did not write or draw or take photos or make films and yet we know quite a lot about who they were and how they lived and died.

Marks Ark Marks Ark - a great success I think it would be safe to say!!

Mark was amazing & so enthusiastic with such great facts that the children understood. We all loved touching the beautiful animals - although not everyone liked the spiders or the snakes!

Adventure Church was delighted to welcome Bishop Tim to their meeting on 31st March.
The Bishop visited somewhere in the Benefice every day that week taking Holy Week sevices and came to Adventure Church to meet the children and parents, to talk to them about Easter and to explain all about the robes that he wears as Bishop.
The children were very interested in what he had to say and answered his questions enthusiastically. Both children and parents found him easy to listen to and a great entertainer. The Easter Garden was completed while the Bishop was here and we shared a party tea with him afterwards.
The Adventure church members were each given a book as a special Easter present at the end of the session and told that our next meeting will be 21st April.

Adventure Church
 
25 children, all members of Week St Mary Adventure Church, spent half an hour with grabbers and gloves (and some Mums and Grandads) and picked up 9 bags of rubbish in Week St Mary Village on 10th March. Their story this week was about Jesus cleaning up the temple and the children were helping to clean up the place that they live to make it a better place for God, for their neighbours and for themselves.
