On Wednesday 18th March 2020, the Kirk Session made the difficult, but necessary, announcement that, with immediate effect, all church services and activities are cancelled until further notice. This includes the Campaigners youth club. Please continue to check the website for updates over the coming weeks and months.
With the closure of Campaigners, Kevin has made up some online classes. Over the next few weeks these are going to be around the theme of Easter. The first episode looks at Zacchaeus and how he met with Jesus.
Lesson 1 - Zacchaeus
Lesson 2 - The Triumphal Entry
Lesson 3 - The Last Supper
Lesson 4 - In the Garden
Lesson 5 - On the Cross
Throughout the month of October and into November the senior group worked on a remembrance mural which was displayed on the wall upstairs in the Community Centre. This showed the Iolaire with a soldier either side, surrounded by a poppy wreath and the Iolaire bell at the top. This was followed by the laying of a wreath at the War Memorial in Crossbost on Saturday 9th November 2019.
Campaigners is very popular activity with the children and we are always stretched in terms of manpower. If there are any in the Congregation who would like to be involved, or feel they could help, please come along or contact one of the leaders.
Campaigners is a youth organisation for all children of school age (P1-S6) which meets each Monday evening between 6.30pm and 7.45pm in the community hall, Leurbost (pictured below), during the school term. All our activities revolve around structured evenings, which include Biblical teaching in a friendly, fun and enjoyable environment. Our activities are designed to help our young people to learn new skills, make new friends, enjoy the company of a mixed peer group and learn about the Christian message in an engaging way.
The children learn about Jesus and the Bible in their classes.
This is followed by an activity which builds upon what they have been learning.
The children proudly display their work.
There is always time for some physical activity aswell.
But this is thirsty work, so after activities juice and snacks are served.
