Welcome to Newport Congregational Church
Children and Young People's work and families
Led by Louise Randall and her team of volunteers
Holy Rascals at NCC
Children’s work is changing at NCC. It will all come under the banner of Holy Rascals @NCC.
As we move into a new season as a church, so the children’s work is changing. Excitingly by Christmas the following will be running: Holy Rascals Sundays, Holy Rascals Toddlers, Holy Rascals Family time and hopefully Holy Rascals after school.
Please pray for Louise and her team as they shepherd the children, as they plan and for the families who will attend.
More details to follow.
Holy Rascals Sundays
Is now back up and running as normal
This is for the children of the church to come down for their own teaching and activities during the service.
Reflections from Louise Randall
for Easter, this year there will be several activities during the school holidays including a treasure hunt and family time, where all families are welcome to join us for different activities and food will be served too
More details to follow
On Sunday mornings (When not in lockdown).....we start in the main service with the adults for some worship. Then we go to our own activities. This includes a time of listening to God, some singing, and then age appropriate activities about the bible or an aspect of being Jesus' friend. We end our session with a prayer and then it is time for play until the adults meeting is finished. Some Sundays we stay in the service. If the adults have Communion we join them back in the service to receive Communion too.
TLC @ NCC is our baby and toddler group which runs every Friday during term time and some holiday weeks. We meet at 9am for time to play. At 10:30am we pack the toys away and have a story, snack, some singing and a prayer to end with. The group is for all pre-schoolers and their carers. It is free to attend
Every 6 weeks or so we run a family time session, normally on a Saturday afternoon. Family time is for all members of the family, children, mums and dads and grandparents too. We start with some activities for all ages, woodwork, junk modelling, bread making. One of the sessions we packed shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. We then have a few large games, including some with the parachute. We do some singing and hear a short message based on the bible. To finish we all have a meal together. Family time is also free to attend.
