5-Alive is for school years 1,2 & 3 and normally meets roughly every other week on Friday evenings from 5:30 to 6:45pm during term time. The evening includes games, craft and often a video based on a bible story.
During the Covid-19 lockdown things are a bit different.
Midweek activities for 5-Alive are currently closed for the summer holidays. They will be restarting in September: details to follow.

BUT… will you?
https://www.messylittlemonster.com/2017/02/no-mess-rainbow-heart-art-toddlers.html – Barnabas means “Son of Consolation”, and he was really good at encouraging people.
What can you do to encourage somebody this week? Here’s an idea, make a rainbow card and send it to somebody you want to encourage. Maybe you could say “Thank you” to a teacher, a parent, a carer or a grand parent.
Or you could make it for someone who helps the community like an NHS worker, a dustbin collector or super market worker.

Have a go and send us a picture of what you make!
