Children & Youth

The Olympics offered a perfect opportunity for a theme for our summer Holiday Club! Fun, games, mess, and a message of God’s love for everyone.

More fun & games at our Annual holiday Club for children aged 9 to 13.

For several years now we have hosted a summer Holiday Club – you may recognise some of the children!

Our "The Ministry of Puppets" have now performed at outreach events, birthday parties, Fun Days, Senior Citizens teas and on Dorchester’s Christmas Cracker Night, – to name but a few!

Prize Giving with Jon Brain - Summer 2013 (Photos by Doug Holt) Prizegiving is our opportunity to celebrate the children and young people with us! Jon Brain came as our guest speaker on this occasion. We support Jon’s work in Wiltshire.

Some photos from previous 'Amplified' events ‘Amplified’ is a joint initiative, giving young people to worship with their peers in a contemporary style, whilst also having opportunity to think about some of the challenging issues they face today.

Here are some photos taken at an event called All Bright on the Night, which was an alternative party to Halloween. That way, kids have fun but stay safe, and no-one ends up with having nightmares!

Children aged 9 to 13 years old enjoyed a variety of fun and games as we partnered with the Baptist Church to put on this Christmas.

Our “Royal Variety Show” was an all-sorts form of talent night! Great fun and a variety of acts with a packed out house! The Pig Orchestra stole the show!

This was our first ‘messy style’ event! With a Christmas feel to it there were a host of games and crafts, plus puppets, food and a story for both young and old to enjoy together

Café@6 is an alternative form of service we are currently trialing until the end of July. It’s a very informal café style environment, including worship, message, drama, group discussion, and a bring & share tea. All welcome. We meet Saturday evenings at The Quiet Space on Poundbury from 6-7pm.
