Relay fun photos

Here are a few more photos from Sunday's relay games, along with an explanation (thanks Sue!)

We started by playing ‘Follow the leader’.  Elisha stuck with Elijah, so we had to stick with the leader, and do everything they did. We then played some relays, remembering that we each had to complete the tasks we were given, but when out turn was up, we had to pass the baton on to the next person. We also played a team race with balls – but if any member of the team let go of the ball, the whole team had to start again!

Follow the Leader

Rev Neti shares with the Awesome Kids.
Emma leads us in prayer.
 This morning Rev Neti chatted to our Awesome Kids about what it means to follow in someone's footsteps, and take up the challenge of being a leader.

We watched a video of a relay race at an athletics track, where the athletes passed a baton to each other.

Neti showed us a special necklace that had been given to him by his father. It is a symbol and reminder to Neti of the 'passing of the baton' from father to son.


Sue and Belinda led the Awesome Kids in lots of fun relay races.

All-Age Family Service 12 June

Join us this Sunday for a creative worship service, with an Olympic theme!

The service will be led by a bunch of us who were at Parish Camp earlier in the year. There will be awesome music with the Chapel Street Band, a dramatic presentation of Mem Fox's story, 'Koala Lou', the screening of our Camp Movie, and... it is even rumored there will be a synchronised swimming routine!

Sing a New Song

Last Sunday, our Awesome Kids proved their skills at being composers and musicians.

With the help of Belinda, Philomena and Carol, the A.K.s taught us all some new songs they composed, about God's amazing love.

They broke out every percussion instrument they could find, distributed them among the congregation, and got everyone to join in.

It was noisy, it was joyful, it was fun, it was a little crazy... it was a new way to sing to the Lord! Thanks Awesome Kids!

FISH pics

Last month, it was all fun and games at our Family Fun Night (FISH).

There were a lot of laughs, a few fierce and hilarious competitions - and of course our scrummy ice-creams, ice-blocks and chocolate fish.

Here are a few pics - but if you'd like to see more then click here.

Our next FISH night is Saturday 11 June, 5pm-7pm. Come and check it out!

Be a Buddy, not a Bully







Our Awesome Kids heard the story, 'ONE', by author Kathryn Otoshi. Red picked on all the other colours, until ONE came along and showed everyone how to stand up for themselves and for others. 


We decorated pink cupcakes to remind us to 'Be a Buddy, not a Bully', and many of us wore pink to show support for anti-bullying.


We also read a book called 'Bye-Bye, Bully!' by J.S. Jackson, which had some great ideas on how to deal with bullying.







What is God Like?

 Listen to Rev Anne read this beautiful book, 'What is God Like?' by Rachel Held Evans and Matthew Paul Turner. https://youtu.be/eq6...
