First Friends

First Friends - Toddler group - Established for over 20 years

EVERY THURSDAY 10.00am – 11.30am (during term time)

All of the leaders would like to WELCOME you to King Street Chapel. First Friends is one of many clubs and activities that King Street Chapel offers people in the community, as a way to get to know people, and to show God’s love. There are groups for all ages that are aimed at bringing people together to make new friends, and share in life. We look forward to getting to know you and your child better through the activities we run at ‘First Friends’ – ENJOY!!

We start at 10.00am with FREE PLAY, a chance to allow your child to explore and experiment with all the toys in the main hall. Also a time for you to socialise with the leaders and other parents, while keeping an eye on your child.

CRAFTS – During this time there is an opportunity for you to go to the back room with your child and take part in a craft. A termly newsletter we print will list the crafts on offer each week. This will further their artistic skills and create something special to take home. Then at 11.00am we tidy all the toys away in the hall and move to the back room for drinks and biscuits for both the children and the adults!

After this, we end the session with a time of singing, and we encourage you to take part in this together.

STORIES – Each week ‘First Friends’ will be based around a Bible story. This will be delivered in a child friendly way, e.g. puppets, asking the children to act, or watching a video clip. The craft will be relevant to the story and there will be a simple message for each week to encourage us all in life. We believe the Bible is the manual for life, and Jesus shared many stories to explain to us how we should try to live, which are just as relevant today as 2000 years ago. We are passionate to share these with you. Feel free to ask us any questions on the stories each week.

We at King Street Chapel believe in Jesus, and we believe in sharing the good news about him to everyone. The leaders may share some ‘real’ stories of how Jesus is part of our lives today in the termly newsletters for you to read.

As leaders we also pray for all the parents and children who attend ‘First Friends’. We believe that prayer works, and would invite any of you to feel free to ask us to prayer specifically for any needs in your lives.

Due to the popularity of this group we do request that you register first, so please ring Rachel Webber on 01884 35706 beforehand.
