Youth Group August 2018
On Sunday evenings, our youth group has been meeting at EMC to have fun, talk about God and have fellowship together. We have enjoyed a variety of activities including an Easter egg hunt for Bible verses to put together the Easter story, discussing the development plan and considering where youth fits in and playing games.
During half term, the youth group joined with some of the CCEMC teenagers to go bowling and for dinner in Kingston. It was a great evening of fun. Over the summer, CCEMC youth are having a variety of events which we will be joining in with.
There is always an element of food involved in youth group. The most notable this term were the Bible-themed pizzas as part of John’s goodbye evening.
Youth group is open to anyone aged 12+. We meet every other Sunday evening from 7 to 8:30pm usually at EMC. We are a small group and will be reviewing EMC’s youth provision in September so look out for more information in future Focus magazines. Please contact me for more information.

Spring into Action
On Wednesday 30th May thirty-three children came to enjoy crafts, games, circus skills, songs and much, much more. We looked at the story of Jonah and were reminded of God’s forgiveness and of how God is with us in good times, but also in tough times. Many thanks to all who helped to prepare for the day and helped on the day itself.
