JaM (Jesus and Me)
JaM is the work within the church with the young children from pre-school through to school year 6.
Our aim is to teach the children about God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit, giving them a good understanding of the Bible and its relevance to them at a personal level in their lives in an interesting, fun and challenging way.
We meet on a Sunday morning, following worship with the whole church, with the children meeting in their different age groups as follows:-
Mini-JaM (pre-school age: 3 to 5 year old) enjoy active worship (sometimes with balloons or bubbles), stories and craft work aimed at their age.
JaM (school year 1 to 6: 5 to 11 year old) have a time of worship together (eg. songs with actions), a prayer and sharing time , sometimes a game, and then splitting into groups to study and learn; reading the Bible and learning through craft activities, stories, quizzes, role play and discussions.
The children also have contact with children’s works in other countries such as India.
