CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

YOUNG CHURCH BUILDERS

All Hallows welcomes children of all ages, and has an active Sunday School, called YCB (Young Church Builders), which meets in All Hallows Church Rooms during the Sunday service at All Hallows.  Through music, discussion, games and craft, pre-school and primary school-age children are introduced to different aspects of Christianity - not just Bible stories, but also values that we have in common with people of all faiths, such as social justice.  

WAAG

WAAG (We Are A Group) is our youth group. It usually meets every other Sunday evening during term time and anyone of secondary school age is very welcome. Its mission is to keep young people involved with church and thinking about faith and social justice issues so we mix Bible-focused learning with film nights, discussions, drama, music and games, and the occasional outing. We have also taken groups to Peacejam in Winchester, where they heard inspirational Nobel Peace Prize winners, participated in seminars and activities with a diverse group of young people and have been inspired to work for peace and justice.

DUE TO COVID -19, OUR THRIVING GROUPS FOR CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE ARE RUNNING, BUT WITH SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT ARRANGEMENTS, AS DETAILED BELOW. 

PLEASE LOOK HERE OFTEN FOR NEWS OF ANY FURTHER CHANGES.

Teenage members of the congregation are invited to help run YCB, and many report that they enjoy spending time with the younger children.  We have an annual YCB outing, as well as a regular social evening for the parents of YCB children.

WAAG Autumn/Winter 2021 Programme

 

WAAG is the All Hallows Church group for young people of secondary school and college age. We usually meet 7–8.30pm on alternate Sunday evenings during term time in the church rooms at All Hallows, but see details below for any known changes. Those who come to WAAG are very welcome to bring a friend to any of the sessions; they do not have to be a member of All Hallows congregation or even a regular church-goer.

Risk assessments, where applicable, will be issued before events. If your child comes to the event it will be taken as your agreement for them to do so.

In 2020 some of the young people in our church (from WAAG and Young Church Builders) created this ‘graffiti art’ to recycle and brighten up the old notice board that was being replaced and show that although the church building was not open due to the pandemic, the church itself was, and is, alive and well.

The chosen theme was  ‘God loves us all’ - an antidote to the racial tensions that flared over the summer. The artwork shows that God’s love is for everyone, whatever their appearance, background or personal traits. God made all of us, everywhere, in His image and He loves us all. 

 

The new noticeboard outside the church was made by Hurstbourne Forge.
