WE’RE BACK!! We’ve all had a well earned break and we are excited to get back into this years programme. But we know that it’s been a long tiring week for the kids, so what better way to round off the week than a FAB Movie Night?!?!?
We are having our BIG FAB Finale …. this will be a great way to celebrate all that has been happening at the holiday and it will be your opportunity to see your child involved in a range of activities showcasing the previous week … there will also be a BBQ and loads happening …. put the date in the diary and make it a family event not to missed ….
This month we’re delighted welcome Lewis. Lewis has just started his degree in Youth Ministry and Practical Theology at CYM. As part of his course he will be on placement with us for the full 3 years of his course. We’re very excited to see what God has in store for both Lewis and us as a parish.
“Hello, my name is Lewis Mason, and I’m a new placement student. I’m studying Youth Ministry and Practical Theology at CYM. I live in Saintfield but usually only spend the latest hours of night in the town as I’m busy travelling the far and wide of the country most days. I have only recently finished my A levels but instead of taking some time off of education, decided to get stuck right back into education while at the same time serving the Lord on my course. I’m looking forward to quickly becoming part of Derryvolgie’s church community and getting to know everyone who I will be serving alongside and also seeing around the church on a weekly basis.”
The FAB Summer Holiday Club ran from Monday 21 Aug – Friday 25 Aug. A team of volunteers had been trained and were ready to welcome 40 primary aged children over the course of the week. Each evening started at 6.30 with a FAB introduction. Then after a team game, each participant was challenged to attempt 8 different tasks and complete a card. After juice and biscuits, Stephen helped us to think about how God gives us what we need as we go through life. We looked at some B ible stories to help us. (David and Goliath, Jacob’s sleep at the bottom of a Heavenly staircase, Mary who washed Jesus’ feet and Jonah and the whale)
Even though Friday evening was a wash out, ninety children and
parents came to a Family night with BBQ. A big thank you to everyone who gave of their time and helped to bring the good news of Jesus into young lives
