Restart of Heroes in Training

We are hoping to start Heroes in Training again on Sunday 19th September. We will be complying with Covid guidelines to keep all of our boys and girls safe over the months ahead. Below is some information about how Heroes in Training will work.

Heroes will run in the Mobile 2 and in the Minor Hall. Initially we will be running Heroes in Training just for children who are in Nursery School up to and including those who are currently in P4. In both venues we have enough space for 15 children. Registration is required and can be done online during the week.

The link for registration will be posted into the church family WhatsApp group. Registration will be open until midday on the Saturday before church. You will need to fill in a separate form for each child and you will need to select the form for either Mobile 2 or the Minor Hall. The online registration forms are very simple and only take a minute to complete. If you need to cancel please let Stephen know as soon as possible.

At each venue there will be some hand sanitiser, the windows will be open (in colder weather make sure your child is wearing something cosy) and there will be 15 chairs each 1 metre apart. Leaders will record the names of all those who attend on a dated seating plan. Each child will be given a pencil case full of equipment that only they will use that week.

The two leaders at the front will wear face coverings when they are not presenting at the front of the rooms. Those attending Heroes in the meetinghouse (Mobile 2) are asked to sit in the middle or Broughshane End aisles of the church. A leader will meet them at either the middle or Broughshane End door and bring them to the Mobile.

It is hoped that during the last hymn the heroes will be returned to their parents in both the meetinghouse and the church hall.

Thank you for your cooperation and understanding in terms of the Covid measures we have put in place. We’re excited that Heroes in Training is going to be running again. We’re looking forward to teaching our boys and girls about the Lord Jesus and other heroes in the Bible!
