Activity #1 - Who's got a temperature
VKids is back in person at Ark Putney Academy on Sunday mornings.
Firstly it goes without saying that we are taking relevant Covid relating measure, you can read all about that here:
However our vision remains the same: that our children come to church and have fun, build real friendships and learn what it is to be a family of followers of Jesus who: love and serve God, love and serve one another and love and serve the world in which we live.
VKids is a fun, safe, engaging space for children to hear about God and experience His love in an age appropriate way.
We have specially trained, DBS checked volunteer teams who a real heart for children and families - look out for our VKids team in aqua-blue t-shirts!
This term we are starting our journey through the Old Testament, and trying to spot how every story whispers Jesus' name!
We split the kids into the following groups:
This is a stay and play room that you can drop in and out of or spend the whole morning in! It is open from 10:15am until the end of the adult service, aimed specifically for 0-12 months but over 1s are welcome there too if they aren't yet ready to settle in the Studio. We will have team members to welcome parents/carers and their little ones, but at present we aren't serving any refreshments. At around 11:15am the kids worship leader will come and lead a few songs with whoever's in the room at the time.
For pre-schoolers (12 months +), located in the Sports Hall building, check-in opens at 10:15am and you are welcome to come into the room with your child to settle them if you need to. This is a room full of toys, games and activities, with an engaging programme which includes singing, craft and stories.
For primary school aged children. Also in the Sports Hall building, check-in opens at 10:15am. Our usual activity groups will be running and children choose to join one of these for the morning. They are Lego, Art & Craft or Sport, plus the Quiet Zone with some sensory activities and Going Deeper for kids in years 5 and 6. All the kids have a time for clear and simple teaching from the Bible and join together for worship and prayer.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Please send your child(ren) in with a water bottle and snack as we won't be providing these for the time being. This is to avoid sharing food.
We look forward to meeting you in VKids!
Each week we will be posting a new family conversation starter/prayer activity around the topic of climate and the environment.

We’re not keeping this to ourselves, we’re passing it along to the next generation— God’s fame and fortune, the marvellous things he has done.
