PACE runs weekly lunchtime clubs in Primary and Secondary schools. While each club includes some Bible based teaching and discussion, all young people are welcome, regardless of what they believe. This makes for some interesting discussions!
We have an exciting 10 week programme to explore different aspects of Christianity for Year 4 students. BOLT Club (Building On Love and Truth) is packed with games and challenges with a short talk where the leader must cover the topic in 60 seconds. This is followed by a time of discussion with the students.
We occasionally include a prayer activity and end with healthy treats. BOLT Club runs weekly for half an hour during the school’s lunch time for one term a year.
The club is fun-packed with various games and challenges
In secondary schools, we hold lunch time ‘drop-in’ clubs once a week during the whole school year. These usually take place in a classroom lead by a PACE team member and local church volunteers and are a great opportunity for students to meet in a fun and safe environment to discuss beliefs, moral and social issues and play games.
Each term comes with a new theme. This could include the ten commandments, contemporary issues, inspirational people from history, or watching video clips and reviewing what can be learnt from them. The talks are discussion based allowing the students to express their opinions as well as hearing a perspective from the leaders.
We aim to create a fun and relaxed environment so that everyone feels welcome and able to share while challenging the students to think more deeply about the topics covered.
A great opportunity for youth to hang out in a fun, safe environment
