Children have so much energy! So much Joy! At UC Grace we want to allow them space to be them selves, explore and learn about Jesus.
Workshops cover different dance styles, opportunities for getting messy and creative with craft, encouraging children to move, make and create using themes and stories for inspiration. Workshops run with a Christian theme, sharing the faith and dance in worship.
We want to encourage each child to become who they want to be with as few misconceptions as possible. This includes using music that doesn't portray adult themes or swear words; promoting right themes and good relationships.
Each workshop will have a theme or story attached to it; for example, previous dance based workshops used Creation, Advent, The Lord’s Prayer; whilst craft ones have made bandanas, hand puppets, marble paintings, cards.
There are two main groups -
Little Rainbows 0 - 3 Years
Suitable for even the littlest of treasures. Join us for an hour of playing, dancing and crafting exploring themes from the bible. There is usually some kind of messy play involved, so don't expect children to stay clean!
Carers are encouraged to join in with the activities alongside the children. The session finishes with a fruit snack but we ask if parents could please bring a drink for their children.
Moving Rainbows 4 - 11 years
This gets the not so little ones up and moving. Come along and have some fun exploring dance in worship and getting creative along the way. Children will have the opportunity to explore some dance in worship skills, as well as do some craft. No prior experience necessary.
In 2020 we are running Children's workshops on Saturday 15th August. There will also be a Family Dance Morning on Saturday 12th December. Further info is on our Events page.
