St Andrew's Church, Chelmsley Wood

Sports Camp

After-School

Every Wednesday at 3:15pm to 4:30pm, term time only, for children in years 4 - 6 in Bishop Wilson School.  

The after-school sports camp is led by Isaac, supported by Junior, Stacey, Mike and Geoff, every Wednesday throughout term-time in the Worship area of the Church.  The children are collected from the school reception area at 3:15pm where they are walked across to the piazza to the Church entrance.

During the session the children take part in a variety of activities such as basketball, dodgeball, tag and many others - each activity requires them to work with each other as a team, as well as to encourage each other on.  They take a five to 10 minute break midway through, during which time they will have a snack, a drink and a discussion about a story from the bible relating to the theme of the week.

Some of the topics covered to date are;

  • Friendship
  • Loneliness
  • Bullying
  • Equality
  • Humility
  • Gratitude

We have seen the group more than double in size over the recent months and would love to see it grow even further enabling us to reach more children from the school.

Isaac is from Scripture Union who is helping St Andrew's in it's mission to reach out to the children and young people of Chelmsley Wood.
