Children and Young People at the Tab
Children and young people are always welcome, they are a vital part of our church. On Sunday mornings we all meet together for the first ten minutes of the service, and then the young people, known as Live Wires, leave for their own session. We explore the love of God through bible stories, themes and projects, using discussion and a range of stimulating activities and experiences, including drama, music, crafts and games. We make the most of the beautiful location by going for walks on the common, or exploring the manse garden. We re-join the congregation at the end of the service to share what we have learnt.
Babies and toddlers; we have a children’s area in the church with toys and games, where parents are welcome to sit with their very young children during the service.
All our volunteers who work with children and young people have DBS clearance, and comply with our Safeguarding Policy. To read our Safeguarding Policy click on this link http://www.rodboroughtab.org.uk/policies/
During the school summer holiday the Tabernacle and Rodborough Parish Church provide games and refreshments for local families at Rodborough Community Hall each Sunday afternoon between 2.00 and 5.00 pm. It’s a great opportunity for people in the local community to get to know us.
Open the Book
Once a week a group of volunteers from The Tab lead an ‘Open the Book’ assembly at Gastrells Primary School. We are part of the nation-wide Open the Book scheme which aims to familiarise primary aged children with stories from the Bible. We use the Lion Storyteller Bible to present stories in a lively and enjoyable way. We do not preach or evangelise, so children of all faiths, or none, can enjoy the stories for their own sake.
