What is a Good News Club?
It is a weekly Bible club for children during the school year. The children are taught by Christians who genuinely know and love the Lord Jesus and are concerned for the spiritual needs of children.
Boys and girls are generally between the ages of 4 to 12 yrs and they gather to sing songs, learn Bible verses, focus on missionaries, compete in a quiz and be taught a visualized Bible lesson.
At Good News Clubs children have the opportunity to receive consistent teaching from the Word of God.
What are the aims?
To provide teaching for children and to encourage spiritual growth, to clearly present the message of the gospel and to supplement the work of the local church by reaching the unreached children and to channel these children into the local church.
When and Where?
Good News Clubs are held regularly each week and the club lasts approximately one hour, after school or early evening. The clubs meet mainly in the welcoming atmosphere of homes but other meeting places can be community halls, mission halls, schools and church halls.
