Latest News - Children

Hi Children and Parents/Responsible Adults,

If you would like your child/children to be a part of our vibrant children's work on a Sunday morning, then please complete a registration form for them. This will enable us to safeguard your child/children whilst they are with us as they will register each time they attend. It will also ensure that you collect them from their group and keep them with you once the planned children's activities are finished. We thank you for your support in this matter.

We have lots of things for children here at The Ark, Friday clubs, Sunday School and our special Glow Praise Parties, where all children from other churches and lots of friends come together to enjoy songs, dance, prayer and a talk, not to mention the Sparkle Squad Puppet Team too. The Ark is a busy place to be, and we love to share all about Jesus with you too. 

See you at church.

There is Love in Dover

Rhubarb and Custard are looking forward to mission week from 19th to 24th March....look out for lots of things you can join in with, including a Godly Play session and a Glow Praise Party.....sharing the love of Jesus with everyone in Dover!

Being Brave like Gideon

In Excite we learnt about Gideon and how God asked him to defeat the Midianites. This was something he could only do in God's strength, as his army was very small in number compared to the Midianites. 

The younger children made models of the things they enjoyed about the story, then we prayed for God to help us with things we find difficult, then we put our prayers on a prayer wall. We can do lots of hard things when we rely on God's strength.

Running the Race

The last Sunday in the month is always Excite, when we all sing on the stage to the rest of the people in church and then go through to our special room where we learn more worship songs, have a talk about a topic from the Bible and then do some fun activities.

This week Carol led a session on Running the Race that God has planned for us and how we are God's athletes. Our lives are a bit like running a marathon, we need lots of food and water to keep going, which comes from the Bible and praying, just like the spectators in a race, we need encouragement from people around us and, endurance, so we must keep going even when it is hard. 

Then we made Rosettes and put the Bible verse on it to remind us that we are God's athletes and are in His race.
