We are starting up our new kids’ club (aptly named Kids Club) on Wednesday 13 February. Each week, primary school aged children from years K-6 will get to
• make lots of new friends;
• play some fun games on our spacious grounds;
• hear engaging presentations on an aspect of the Christian message;
And if that’s not enough, there will be songs, puppets, drama, challenges, craft, cream pies and more. This is definitely something to come along to. And by all means bring your friends.

What a typical afternoon looks like
Drop off is between 3 and 3:30pm. During this time, we’ll have a bit of afternoon tea and play some unstructured games while we wait for everyone to arrive.
After a brief welcome, from 3:30-3:50 we’ll play some “all-in” games before splitting off into older kids and younger kids for a few more games from 3:50-4:05.
Next up, from 4:05-4:30, we’ll have our teaching time which may consist of a talk, puppet show, drama, memory verse, challenge, and some songs.
After that, from 4:30-4:50 we’ll spend some time in small groups (split based on age), reflecting on what we’ve just learned, and doing some fun small group activities.
We’ll then round our time off with the dice of decisiveness. What is the dice of decisiveness? You’ll have to come along and find out.
Pick up is at 5:00.

If your child attends Randwick Public…
But wait! Things get even better.
If your child attends Randwick Public School, the school is happy for your child to come across after school with representatives of Kids Club. Those in years 3-6 will assemble at the silver seats near the gate on Frances St closest to The Avenue. Those in K-2 will be picked up by Marty Robinson (assistant minister at St Jude’s) from their class lines and then join those in years 3-6. We will then all walk across with a few of the Kids Club leaders.
If you wish for this arrangement, please communicate both with the school and with myself. Click here for a template of the note that can be sent to the school.
