Ready Steady Stick goes to the Big Top

Ready Steady Stick is our children's group which meets in half terms, at Christmas, Easter and in the school summer holidays. The Next Ready Steady Stick meeting will be December 12th at 2pm.

   We met in October half term to go to the Big Top and this is what happened:

Linda Cox tells us:

October saw the start of Ready, Steady, Stick’s new adventure, ‘The Big Top’. It is set around the theme of a circus and looks at some of the colourful characters you might find in a circus. This time we chose to look at the Strongman; in the Bible there is a man named Samson, who was strong when God was with him, but not when Samson forgot about God.


We watched a drama of Samson acted out by some of the adults. Samson had very long hair, he was told never to cut it and it gave him his strength. As Samson forgot about God he was tricked, his hair was cut and he lost his strength. Samson knowing what he had done wrong, turned back to following and listening to God, he prayed and trusted God and his strength returned.

We learnt that we are stronger with God’s strength and could do things that we couldn’t do without his help.



During the afternoon, we participated in lots of craft activities involving glue, glitter and sequins; we created beautiful headbands and grass potato heads. There were some unusual and large junk models made and activities with food. We even had time to stop and have a drink and biscuit!



Everyone who came had great fun and there were lots of smiling faces.
