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.

Jesus’ friend Peter
This week at 5alive we thought about how one of Jesus’ best friends (Peter) turned his back on Him and how Jesus gave him another chance. We also looked out examples of how people can take something bad, ugly or apparently useless (like a spoiled friendship) and make it into something amazing.
