Children's and Young People's groups for this Sunday are as follows:

 

Elevate (Ages 7-11 ) An organised session for the first part of the service.  Please meet in the hall, entering through the fire escape off the car park between 9:50-10am. Come prepared for part of the session to be outside.

Bounce (Ages 3 – 7) - The Meeting Room will be set up as an activity room for children of this age. Parents and children are welcome to stay in the service for as much or as little as you would like. The room is there for you to make use of if it is helpful. Parents are responsible for their own children as this is an unsupervised space.

Ages 0-2: The lounge will be well ventilated and have toys ready to play with. Again, you are welcome to stay in the service for as much or as little as you want. The creche room is there for you to make use of if it is helpful. Parents are responsible for their own children as this is an unsupervised space.

Mole Family  Leaving Tea

This Sunday will be Jonathan and Kristine Mole's last Sunday with us as they move on to start  a new ministry at All Hallows in Lady Bay. We are sad to see them go but immensely grateful for the time they have served us at St Luke's. At 5.30pm there is an informal tea which will include a presentation to them. This is now fully booked.

 

7pm Encounter

A time of informal praise and worship and waiting on God.  During this service there will be a time when the Mole’s will share with us about their new ministry and we will pray for them. We regret that current COVID restrictions mean that numbers for this are limited. We do have a few places left please book  via the church office office@st-lukes-gamston.org
