Children & Youth


The Fun Day was attended by the young people of the Circuit and some of the older, previous generation that met under the Youth United Worship banner.  Some of the activities involved a quiz involving world cup flags, football, a bouncy castle and gladiator wars.  Rev. Dr. Andy Lyons was present as was Bella from Tulse Hill Methodist Church.  It was a lovely hot day, perfect for some fun in the sunshine, in which fun was indeed experienced and was vibrant among those who participated.  The day was sectioned apart as the children were given opportunities to explore the various stations of activities across the field outside of Brixton Hill Methodist Church.  Activities spanned from morning to afternoon (around 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.), including a bouncy castle which excessively entertained the youth and was a challenge to keep them away from.  Furthermore, the youth had exercised their combat skills on an inflatable gladiator duel bouncy arena in which 2 designated teams had each member go up against the opposition in a battle.  The winner of the battle would win a point for their team in which the team with the most points would be exalted champions.  Different teams were selected for each activity, for instance, in the “World Cup Quiz” and the football challenges. As well as enjoyment, competition thrived in throughout the day as the youth were desperate to see success in their own teams.  A memorable example of this would be during the quiz – which was organised by Bella (Tulse Hill representative) –, in which a world cup participant country would be called out and the teams (one at a time) had to point to the correct flag of the stated country.  Spirit had burst out of the youth leading to exclaiming excitement which could be definitely heard by commuters outside of the Church. The day also grew in success from the football challenges which were organised.  This included a pass-and-shoot drill which inspired a great energy out of the youth and also sprinting races between the two teams aiding to the exuberance of the entire day.  What a Fun Day indeed!

It was a week after Easter Praise, and there was hum of activity coming from Brixton Hill; the face painter had arrived, newspapers were dressing tables, chocolate was being melted, chairs were being piled high and reams and reams of worksheets were being placed all around the design stations.  The Church had been transformed.

The children of the Circuit were being gathered together for some fun and games, all in the name of Christ.  “Would anybody turn up?” was the question that was on everyone’s lips.  Within 20 mins the Church was buzzing with excitement as the young people came through the door expectantly.

The morning started with some a gentle competition, an egg and spoon race!!!

Despite a great start by Linford’s team, they were pegged back after a rule break, and lost the contest overall.

After the team bonding took place, there were a choice of activities available all based around Easter;  Worksheets, Easter chocolate nets, Colouring sheets, the Easter photo booth, Easter egg and a Treasure hunt.  There was also the opportunity to get some face or body painting done.  Linda our resident face painter was one of the stars of the event, here are some of her fabulous art work…

The event was very busy with both the young people and some of the adults getting stuck into the activities available.  A great time was had by all and we hope to see you again at  the  next event!!!
