Board Game Church is for adults and their children aged 7 and over (Year 3 and up at school) who enjoy board games – and by that we mean not just the traditional Scrabble and Monopoly, but also the newer more complex board games like Carcassone, and Ticket to Ride – and well much newer still…the list goes on and on.
It would be really helpful, for catering purposes, if you could let us know that you are attending, and any dietary preferences (also if there are any planned changes).
WHAT FORM WILL IT TAKE?
We start the worship at 4:00pm, but there are drinks and biscuits, and short play games available from 3:30pm.
Once refreshed we’ll have a short game-based activity, to help us get to know one another.
Following that, we’ll have a time of worship, seeking to learn of Jesus, but with a game theme.
Following that we’ll spend at least an hour simply playing board games with one another.
After that we’ll share a simple meal, i.e. fish finger sandwiches, jacket potatoes, pizza or hot dogs (or dietary alternatives). Finally we’ll have a game-based prayer time, where we will pray for one another, our community and our world. We aim to finish by 6:00pm.
What will the afternoon be like. We aim to mix, playing board games and sharing in some food, with a time of worship, where we’ll get to know one another, pray, and look at scripture with a gamers eye!
CAN ANYONE JOIN?
With the agreement of parents, we are now able to welcome younger children (aged 7+, or year 3 at school or over) to this family activity. The children do need to be accompanied by an adult though please. We’ll all be playing in the same room, and we have games appropriate for different age levels – including some complex ones for adults.
HOW MUCH IS IT?
We are aiming to cover the costs of food and room hire and ideally create a surplus to purchase new games. A freewill offering will be taken with this in mind.
SO I NEED TO BRING A BOARD GAME?
We’ve accumulated a good number of games, but if you have a favourite, however, feel free to bring it along. Please bear in mind our time constraints.
As we mentioned, it would be really helpful if you could let us know you are coming, so we can cater appropriately. To do so, or for other queries, please contact Andy on (01904)784545 or email using the contact form.
