If you're a parent/guardian of a child in Primary School...keep scrolling through!

  

 

This year we are unable to meet in the church building to celebrate our wonderful God of all that is light and good in our annual Light Party on 31st October, but that doesn't mean we can't celebrate in style!

This year we are spreading the Light Party out over three days, Thursday 29th to Saturday 31st, culminating in a fabulous fancy dress session on Saturday!

 

We've gone online using Zoom!

Throughout the Zoom Light Party we will be learning different promises of God and how they were true in the Bible, are true today, and will be true in the future!

Each lesson & Need to Know is based on a promise from Psalms.

The Bible story is delivered differently each Zoom Light Party session.

Each session EVERYONE will play the large group game as we jump, duck & move side-to-side to dodge space junk as we “fly” through space.

We have three worship songs that we will probably know off-by-heart by the end of Saturday!

On Saturday evening we will all look a little strange in our fancy dress costumes (not too scary please as there will be little children present).

As well as crafts during main Zoom Light Party sessions that we can do together, you'll also find a wealth of activities to do on this website, so keep checking in!

 

Our Memory Verse is Psalm 145:13 (NLT) - Can you do the actions to help you remember it?

“For your kingdom is an everlasting kingdom. (both hands point up)

You rule throughout all generations. (palms up, opening to sides)

The Lord always keeps His promises; (hold hands in front like a book)

He is gracious in all He does.” (cross hands on heart)

 

If you're anything like me you probably can't wait until October 29th to start celebrating, so why don't you download a colouring version of this year's poster and stick it up somewhere to remind you and others when the party is happening?
