Happy New year!
We hope you've all had a great Christmas break, however you spent it.
Kidz Klub York is back on Next week! After finishing up Gladiators last term, we are moving on to a brand new theme: 'fireflies'. It's a theme packed with a fun and wacky pantomime revolving around Fredd (yes that's Fredd with two d's!) the lighthouse keeper, completely fresh and exciting new games as always, and a look into the themes of light and darkness - and having a look at what Jesus meant when he called himself the 'light of the World'.
For further details on specific timings and when certain clubs start back, head over to the 'current clubs' page on the website.
It's sure to be a great term, so make sure you don't miss out!

With memories of sunshine becoming a rapidly distant memory, it woul seem that summer is finally coming to an end.
All is not gloom and doom, however, for kidz klubs will be returning with a brand new theme: 'Gladiators'!! There will be plenty of fantastic new games, high energy songs and plenty of silly dramas - as well as the opportunity to learn about the armour of God.
Clubs will be starting back on the week beginning the 11th of September, and it is worth noting that there is a new club in Huntington (over at St Andrews) on Tuesday nights. To find more information about clubs and specific dates and times then head over to the 'current Klubs' page.
For our Riverside club, there is a brand new minibus route starting up. The route will head to four different locations: Pottery Lane, Yearsley Grove, Bell Farm and Boundary Close. Timings for drop-off and pick-up can be found below. For more information about this free minibus service then feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org or ring the office on 07570804262.

If you're looking for a fun, and non-scary alternative to trick or treating on Halloween, then why not come along to our 'Kidz Klub York Light Party'?
It's going to be a great evening, jam packed with light-themed games, crafts, food, dancing and UV lighting! There will be a bouncy castle, and also a slot for some singing and dancing - as well as a short talk that will be focused upon the presence of light in the darkness, having a little look at Jesus - who the bible calls 'the Light of the World'.
Entry for the evening is just £1, and this includes a warm hot dog for food. Your child will also get to take home any crafts that they have made on the night. Anyone who is of primary school age is welcome to come.
Do remember to bring bright or neon clothing - this way your child can glow and shine under our UV lighted area.
See you there!

Who are you?
My name is Hannah Bower and I am 20 years old
Where have you come from?
I have come from a village called Skidby, which is near Hull. I have lived there all my life. So this is my first time living away from home. Back home I attended a church called Christ Church Cottingham, which I was deeply involved with for a few years now.
Tell us a little bit about you…
I have just finished an extended diploma in photography and design in a specialist art and design college and I’m currently taking a gap year to work with Kidz Klub and I’m so happy to see what God has in store for me. After my gap year I am not sure what I will be doing next. I will wait and see what God has in store for me. I have a huge passion for photography and would like to be more involved in this some point in the future and ideally start my own business in wedding and family photography. My hobbies include; baking, reading, photography and making crafty things. I have been involved in the children’s work in our Church and took on the role of setting up and leading a girls group for 11 to 16 year olds, which has taken off really well. All these experiences have been an amazing opportunity to be involved with the church and it has really developed and strengthened my faith.
How did you end up coming to be an intern for Kidz Klub?
How did I end up here? Well I have been going to new wine for a couple of years now and was a leader in the Ground Breaker tent. It was there where I first met Kate, she explained about Kidz Klub and what it involved. I have always had a huge passion for working with children and building a relationship with them. I also think that it is incredibly important that children get to know and experience the love of Jesus so that instantly struck a chord in my heart. However my plan was that I was going to further my career in photography so I looked and applied into various photography courses and jobs. However as I am fast learning our plans aren’t nearly as great as the ones god has for us. The plans for studying photography further fell through and when I was tiding my room one night I came across Kidz Klub information. This hit me hard and I realised that God was looking out for me that whole time. I then spoke to my parents and we prayed together before then contacting Kate to get more information about what it would involve. And right from that moment every step of my journey, until this point has just felt so right. And I have felt God right by my side. And that’s my story so here I am!
What are you most looking forward to about the year?
I am really looking forward to seeing what Gods plan is for this year. I hope and pray that this experience will mould me and strengthen my faith and also my confidence as a person. I am also looking forward to getting to know all of the people who are involved in Kidz Klub and have a huge part in making it what it is. I am most looking forward to meeting all of the children in Kidz Klub and building relationships with them. As this is my first time living away from home I am excited to find my way around a new place and hopefully not get too lost.
What would you like prayer for?
Firstly that I settle in and find my way around the area without getting lost. And also that I will be used in the way God wants me to be and I can get the most out of this amazing experience as I have been so blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing charity.

Yesterday I spent the morning preparing for Kidz Klub Choir. We did about kindness and why it’s important to be kind. I used a piece of paper in a metaphorical way by crumpling the paper up then straightening it out again. However, they then realised after straightening it out, thinking of it as saying sorry, that the paper still didn’t go back to how it was before. This showed the kids that you must always think before you do or say anything horrible to someone else no matter how horrible they are to you. After that Chloe and I went to visit the children at Yearsley Grove Primary School while they were eating lunch. As soon as we came back I got on with doing some posters for the carnival this weekend for the Kidz Klub stall. After that Chloe and I went to visit some more kids at their house, it was nice to see some of the kids that I could be seeing tonight. Finally the choir came which was really nice to listen to the children sing, and listen as I had my slot.

It's my first day of work experience today, and we've discussed the week ahead. I'm actually quite excited for what I'll be doing. Despite all the meetings, telling stories to the kids sounds quite fun. I'm thinking of getting them to act it out for me at the front, can't forget dress up either. Visiting rounds should also be interesting as I rarely do them. Doing the Kidz Klub choir is making me very slightly nervous but I'm pretty confident anyway. Kate has directed me through the week's timetable, sounds pretty good to me. Work experience should be awesome since I alrready know I like the people I'm working with

What has been your favourite thing about being an intern for Kidz Klub?
I think my favourite thing would have to be meeting all the children and getting to know them all. Doing visiting rounds each week also gave me the chance to get to know some children even more, and their families.
What have you struggled with or found difficult about the internship?
I have to say I have struggled mostly with assemblies, solely due to the fact that I am not a huge fan of early mornings. So getting up at 7am was quite a struggle!!
What types of jobs did you do on as an intern?
Monday’s and Wednesday’s would often involve preparation for the Kidz Klub on that night. This would involve things such as preparing anything for the messy games and making sure that any props or material was sorted for the night. I’d also do things such as write a newsletter about Kidz Klub’s progress, create colouring sheets for the children and help write scripts for assemblies we’d do in the local schools. I went to Yearsley Grove Primary School and New Earswick Primary School very often, this was to get to know the children who go there and see if they may be interested in going to Kidz Klub and just building relationships with the other children in the community. I would also go visit some of the children and families that go to Kidz Klub in New Earswick giving them a colouring sheet each week, just so that we can get to know the families the children come from.
What have you learnt from your time here in York?
I feel I have benefitted a lot through the talks done for the children in Kidz Klub. They are presented in a way that children will respond mostly to it, but I feel that they do definitely apply to everyone. The teachings I feel have certainly made me take on different perspectives on some things. I feel like this experience has strengthened my faith, and given me a new outlook on things.
What do you plan to do for the rest of the year now?
Well I’m going to university in September to study working with children and families, so I’m going to get a job and some more work experience in preparation for it. I also hope that in my home church that I can partake more in the children’s ministry as I’m sure after my time here I can go home and come up with a few more ideas.
Would you recommend doing an internship with Kidz Klub?
Definitely, I think it’s worth doing it just to meet the kids. They’re such amazing people and I feel so grateful to have been able to have got to know so many of them over the past six months. But Kidz Klub really makes an impact on these childen’s lives, bringing them closer to God and helping them know how great his love really is for them and it’s so rewarding being able to be a part of that.
