INTEREST GROUPS

INTEREST GROUPS

Every term we run a number of Interest Groups - everyone is welcome to attend!

These are groups run by people who are enthusiastic and knowledgeable about their chosen subject, and who are prepared to pass on what they know to others in an informal and friendly setting.

Attendance is generally free, but depending on the course may require either bringing your own materials, or paying for some of the materials provided - see individual course descriptions for specific details.

Makaton Interest Group

Makaton Interest Group - Sign Language for Children

As time has progressed and more research has been done a signing program has been created that doesn't depend solely on signing but encourages speech as well. Makaton was created in the 1970s and has since been developed, researched and trialled.

Makaton is becoming the now 'go to' sign program not just for school children but for adults too, and it is now being trialled with people suffering from dementia.

Many schools are ensuring that teachers are familiar with at least some Makaton to support children with development delay and special needs.

The session will be theory, practical and group activity based, covering Stages 1-4 and more if the group is capable.


Please bring a list of any words you may need for your personal use so I can look for them on the database provided by the Makaton Charity.

Please bring your friends along to this as it will appeal to many. This is not a dull session but full of activities not just to equip you, but also to help you understand the difficulties that may be encountered.

It will also look brilliant on your CV. See you for some learning fun!

When:
Wednesday evenings 7.00 - 9.00pm,
 
May 15 29, Jun 12 26, Jul 10 24
Where:
Open Door Church Centre

Evangelism Course

Evangelism Course - Blowing your Cover

'Blowing Your Cover' is more than just an evangelism training tool. It is a course that helps to shape people's thinking about who they are in Christ and how they share their faith.

The course focuses on the uniqueness of each individual and how their life story can transform the culture around them. It explores the Father heart of God through the Gospel and equips Christians to share this life-changing message with their family and friends, whilst releasing them to be all God meant them to be as they do so.

With six dynamic and challenging sessions 'Blowing Your Cover' complements Alpha, Freedom in Christ and Christianity Explored.


The cost of the course is £7.00 (for manual). Please pay in advance (Concessions available), cash to Gavin or Judy Rendall.

If you would like to join this course please email Bruce Townsend on brucetownsenduk@googlemail.com by Sunday 14th April.
