Godzone

Romsey Baptist Church has a thriving youth work and this is obvious during a Sunday morning service when, after twenty minutes or so, the young people leave to go to their groups. The church seems to be left half empty! Godzone sessions start with a joint time of worship using an interactive DVD for children in Minizone, Kidzone and NRGzone.

The Godzone groups are:

Creche logo.jpgCreche – 0 to 3 years old
We have a dedicated room for babies and toddlers with age appropriate toys. Volunteers are available each week, but parents are more than welcome to stay.

 

MiniZone logo.jpgMinizone – 3 years to end of year R
This group, designed for pre-schoolers, has an informal feel to the session including a story, games, craft and snack time. We start with a welcome song and end with a special prayer. In the run up to Easter we are 'meeting' some of Jesus closest friends and learning about what it meant to be a disciple. After Easter we will be thinking about the Psalms.

KidZone logo.jpgKidzone – years 1 and 2
This half term Kidzone will occasionally meet with Minizone and in the run up to Easter we are ‘meeting’ some of Jesus closest friends and learning about what it meant to be a disciple. After Easter we will be thinking about the Psalms. A typical session will include a story, game/activity, craft, prayer and snack.

NRGZone logo.jpgNRGzone – years 3 to 4
We start our session with news time, and drinks and biscuits. Then we move onto a Bible story and work together on the relevance to the children's daily routines. We encourage questions and discussion and also want to develop the children's ability to pray. We like the session to be as interactive as possible and use varying resources to maintain interest, often with games and extra snacks! We've been challenged over the last few months to facilitate sessions where children can meet with God rather than sessions where we purely deliver a lesson plan - an ongoing challenge! In the run up to Easter we are ‘meeting’ some of Jesus closest friends and learning about what it meant to be a disciple. After Easter we will be thinking about the Psalms.

XZone logo.jpgXzone – years 5 to 8
X-zone, which encompasses 9 - 13 year olds, is a recipe for an exciting and sometimes exuberant young people's group. Recently using Rock Solid material (from Youth for Christ) we have a number of activities, games and discussions as we seek to apply God's word to life in 2017 for this age group. In the run up to Easter we are ‘meeting’ some of Jesus closest friends and learning about what it meant to be a disciple. After Easter we will be thinking about the Psalms.

Yzone logo.jpgYzone – Years 9 to 13
Y-Zone is a relaxed group for Years 9-13 where we look at life-style topics, a study from the Bible, current affairs and what the Bible has to say and issues relevant to the young people. Hot or cold drinks and biscuits included. In the run up to Easter we are ‘meeting’ some of Jesus closest friends and learning about what it meant to be a disciple. After Easter we will be thinking about the Psalms.

TheMix logo.jpgThe Mix
Occasionally all of the Godzone groups (excluding Yzone) join together for sessions filled with stories, games, craft and more! This term we will meet for The Mix on 23rd April, 4th June and 16th July.
