St Bride's: Worship & Ministry

Sunday Club

sunday_club.jpgThe Sunday Club at St Bride's aims to provide a safe and stimulating environment for the younger members of our congregation to meet and develop their own relationship with God and with each other. Children from 4 to 11 years are invited to listen to and discuss a Bible story followed by a weekly activity or games and then singing and prayers. The younger children under 4 are invited, with a parent or carer, to play with toys and read books as well as joining in with singing and prayers.

The Sunday Club is run on a rota basis by volunteers from the St Bride's congregation who bring their own varied skills, experiences and enthusiasm to the sessions each week. Members of the St Bride's Youth Group (ages 11 to 17) are also on hand to support the adults in the sessions.

Sunday Club takes place each Sunday morning during the 11 o'clock Choral Eucharist service.

If you are able to volunteer to help at Sunday Club either as a Session Leader or Adult Helper we would be very pleased to hear from you.

SAVE THE DATE: Sunday 11th December 2016

St_Bs_Crib_Service_Invite_002_400x279.jpgChristmas is for children just as much as for adults, and we recognise that at St Bride's by offering a short service at 3pm on Sunday 11th December in which the children re-enact the Christmas story. Anything can happen, and it really doesn't matter if it does!

Dress up your children or grandchildren in appropriate costumes and join us for this informal celebration, which is followed by refreshments, and craft activities for children.

We would like to invite secondary age young people to get involved in the service by helping to lead the Christmas prayers and those a little younger to be the Nativity characters in our family service. 

Afterwards there will be party food for the children, and for the grown ups, mulled wine and mince pies.

SUNDAY CLUB UPDATES

Sunday 27th November 2016Shoebox.jpg

St Brides Sunday Club members helped sort and fill boxes, ready for a blessing at Sunday's morning service.

Sunday Club has been running the highly successful Christmas shoebox appeal in partnership with Computers for Charities. The shoebox appeal supports children in the UK that are unlikely to receive anything else this Christmas. For the first time, we also decided to support vulnerable and disadvantaged elderly people within the same communities. One of the programmes is 'adopt a Grandparent/ Grandchild' where the elderly are paired with at risk children in an aim to give children another adult in their corner whilst giving the 'grandparent' company and often their only source of contact to the outside world.

Thank you to everyone for your generous donations and kind support.

Sunday 20th November 2016

The children spent time learning about the story of Creation, and then put their new learning into practice by creating their own pictures and objects made out of pipe cleaners. 

Saturday 12th November 2016

Sunday Club members helped run the 'Guess the Number of Matchsticks' stall at the Lord Mayor's Show. They did an amazing job and raised lots of money for a great cause.

Sunday 30th October 2016

The children designed their own St. Bride's inspired t-shirts in preparation for the Lord Mayor's Show on Saturday 12th November. Sunday Club members will join in the celebrations as well as lend a helping hand during the day's events, also known as 'London's favourite Street Party'.

Sunday 9th October 2016

To celebrate Harvest Festival, the Sunday Club had lots of fun using traditional British vegetables to make Mr (and Mrs) Potato Heads. The children gave their Potato People some wonderfully exotic names and they were used to decorate the table during the Harvest Bake Sale. The Sunday Club raised a tremendous £65.50 by selling the delicious cakes and brownies the children had made. The money raised will be included in the Christmas Shoe Box Appeal.

Sunday 25th September 2016

Sunday Club members presented their beautiful, hand-made poster to Alison and the congregation during the notices.

The poster is now on display in church for all to see and enjoy.
