Children and their families are valued highly at The Ark and we have an excellent outreach team who provide events and clubs for families to attend.
Our team is headed up by Carol Jenkins and Rachel Bainbridge who have many years of experience working with children and organising events. Events held over the last couple of years include live nativities, christingles, pantomimes, Easter egg hunts, glow parties, and performances.
They also have a puppet team, 'The Sparkle Squad,' who specialise in Blacklight Puppetry and have visited schools, nurseries and residential homes, along with numerous performances at The Ark, to spread the Gospel using puppets.
The third Thursday in every month a Creative Sparks session is held at The Ark from 5:30-7:00pm aimed at children in Key Stage 1. The evening includes lots of different ways to be creative so.......crafts, dance, drama, cooking along with games and lots of fun. Parents are welcome back at the end for cake and coffee and a chance to see what their children have been up to.
Our next big event is planned to be a Light Parade on Sunday 10th December....more info to follow.
