Children and teens
Some of us who are a bit older may associate church with being forced to attend Sunday School as kids. These meetings were heavy on education and light on fun. As a result they could sometimes be mind-numbingly boring. We want to ensure that those days are gone and the emphasis is firmly on discovering just how amazing God is through fun activities, true stories of how God shows us his love and engagement through talking with him.
We basically offer two types of activities; those going on during our Sunday Services, and those that happen in the week.
Mid week children's activities
Life in Blandford can be boring for children. We want to change that, which is why we run a series of mid week activities that are about having fun. While our sunday groups contain a christian component, mid week meetings are more social in nature. These activities include:
Footprints is for babies, toddlers and their parents and carers. At Footprints, we want you and your family to feel welcome, have fun and develop holistically. Footprints is run at BEC by a great team of volunteers from the church. There is a waiting list at present as we have a limit on numbers but if you would like to be on the list please contact our Church Office. Footprints meets on a Monday morning from 10.00a.m. – 11.30a.m.
Kidz Klub is a fast-paced, action-packed children’s club in Blandford. There are messy games, prizes, competitions, pantomine, singing and dancing. The Christian faith and good citizenship are promoted throughout the club. It’s for all children in reception to year 6 and everyone is welcome.
Focus meets on a Saturday night and on Wednesday evenings for bible study and discussion. Our Saturday evening Focus is purely social and include a range of activities including the cinema, McDonalds, fireworks, camping, festivals...the list goes on. The group is aimed at 13-19 year olds and is a great place to make new friends and occasionally escape Blandford (the single goal of any self-respecting teenager.)
