RADFORD ROAD CHURCH

 We were delighted to welcome the children of Clapham Terrace Nursery and Reception class to Radford Road Church on Friday morning March 18th. The children were told a simple form of the Easter story and then took part in several craft activities.

It was a splendid morning enjoyed by children, staff and organisers.

 

 

 

EASTER ACTIVITY MORNING FOR CHILDREN

40 Days and 40 Nights

THURSDAY MARCH 24th 9:30am-12:00 noon.

We warmly welcomed  children of Primary School age, their parents and carers.

During the morning, we  looked at Jesus’ time spent in the desert. We wanted to help the children to understand how this part of Jesus’ life links to Lent, that God is very firmly in control of His creation and “All things were made to His glory”.

We thank everyone for praying for this work and for their help in making the morning such a success.

We had 18 children and lots of parents and carers all of whom enjoyed participating in the story and in the craft activities which followed.

PALM SUNDAY 2016

 

Our Palm Sunday Service was led by the Revd. Andy Laird. This was a Parade Sunday and so we welcomed the members of the Uniformed Organisations who all enjoyed taking part in the service. The focus was on Jesus upturning the tables of the money changers in the Temple at Jerusalem. The children enacted the Jewish people taking sacrificial gifts to the Temple. They were given tokens to estimate what they would be able to buy from the unscrupulous merchants selling sacrificial gifts of pigeons, chickens and sheep at the door of the Temple.

RAINBOWS SLEEPOVER

RADFORD ROAD RAINBOWS HAVE A SLEEP OVER

 

We had about 20 Rainbows and Brownies for the day and 15 were brave enough to sleep over. We had great fun on the Saturday building a submarine and an underwater cave.
A very enjoyable but tiring sleepover was had by all.
Andy Laird did us proud with a Sunday service based on an underwater theme. The rainbows certainly took on the story about Jonah, when one was heard recounting the story to her grandparents later on that day. She went into great detail about how Jonah was spat out of the whale complete with a great description on the goo that came with him.

RADFORD ROAD CHURCH CUB SCOUTS

 

2016 is the Cub Centenary year.  Cub Scouting is 100 years old. How many people remember ‘Bob a Job week’, boys in long socks, green garters and green caps all offering to do a good turn every day?  We have had to drop the ‘Bob a Job week’, garters and caps but are still working on doing our best and our good deeds.  This is going to be a year of many activities, not only for the Cubs at Radford Road, but Cub Scouting all across the world.

 

Our diary of activities started on the 22nd January with a night hike across from Offchurch followed by pizza, films and a sleepover (eventually) in the Church Hall. It was a great success.

The Cubs also took part in the Leamington District Cub Swimming Gala and came 7th out of 14.  Other activities this year will include a County Camp for over 900 children, and a renewal of our promise ceremony during the pantomime in December at the Spa Centre.

So, if anyone has any past memories of being a Cub or being involved with the Cubs it would be lovely to hear from them.
