Friday marked the first of our fantastic new Children and Youth event’s J Zone and The Zone. We had a wonderful turn out at both events, seeing over 40 Young people coming along plus a brilliant group of young leaders and adult helpers. J Zone started the party at 6pm with large games, craft, activities for those aged in Year 4-Year 6. There was a great vibe around the evening, with a lot of laughter and some brilliantly decorated cakes.
The Zone followed on from this at 7.30 with a big group game with involved lots of children’s play balls, in teams they had to try and collect as many of their own colour whilst stopping other teams! It was chaotic but incredibly fun. We followed this on with 4 different Zones which in groups they would move from one to the next. Each zone was different, with a craft based zone, a messy ‘wildcard’ zone, a reflective Zone and an Active Zone each had a link to the biblical story of the Lost Son. The Zone finished off the evening with hot chocolate and a tuck shop.
We loved it and cannot wait for our next one on the 3rd of November!
