Kids Alive

Kids Alive is a free, weekly, term time club for children in school years 3-5 (ages 7-10) that we run in Ladywood.

We have a three year rolling curriculum in which we teach the children a new theme each half term. These themes include:

  • ‘What Would Jesus Do?’
  • Bible Superheroes
  • ALF (About Life and Faith) – material designed for this age group which gives a fun and relevant presentation of the gospel

The sessions last 90 minutes.

  • They start with board games and quiet toys.
  • There is a 20 minute presentation of the theme which may include acting, quizzes, videos, puppets or dressing up, always with lots of audience participation.
  • After that we do a themed craft activity. We have done all manner of cutting, sticking, molding, sculpting, sewing, planting, decorating and there is usually laughter and a bit of mess!
  • Then we have a session of games – running around games, team games, races and competitions.
  • We finish with a brief recap of the session – and each half term we teach the children a memory verse which encapsulates the term’s theme.
