More than 210 children and 75 leaders attended three Kids Big Adventure Days organised by Connor Children’s Project Officer Jill Hamilton during October.
The first took place in Ballymoney on October 4, and this was followed by Jordanstown Parish Halls, Newtownabbey, on October 11 and St Paul’s Church Hall, Lisburn, on October 18
The theme of the days was ‘The Big Step,’ and through a variety of medium, including music, craft and games, the children were encouraged to take a step of faith towards Jesus – Fully Relying On God – or FROG for short.
To illustrate this, they heard the story from the Bible telling how Peter stepped out of the boat and walked on the water to Jesus.
Then it was hands on, as everyone got stuck into making bunting. On stage, there was a full programme, including ‘silly warm up songs,’ drama, praise songs with lots of energetic actions, and puppets.
The children also enjoyed craft workshops and had the chance to read prayers they had written themselves. Visit the Ripple Connor website for lots of photos of the three Kids Big Adventure Days.
