Guides

Rainbows Wednesday 6.30-7.45pm

Rainbows are aged 4-7 and meet in the main hall.  They do lots of fun activities such as baking, crafts and badge work. They help charities, friends and family, following our promise to be kind and helpful.

Brownies Thursday 6.30-8.00pm

Brownies do lots of fun and exciting activities, including craft, baking, fund raising, carol singing, games and best of all, Brownie camp.  They teach the Brownie promise of ‘thinking of others before ourselves and doing a good turn every day’.

Guides Thursday 7.30-9.30pm

14th Bangor Guides reopened in Sept 2010.  Since then we have had between 26-34 girls with age range of P7 –Year 10. We do all sorts of activities, outdoors whenever possible. We bake all things sweet, do quizzes, learn about the world around us, complete interest badges, and of course, have team games and patrol challenges which become very competitive. Every year we go to the Christmas Panto in Belfast, a Giants Hockey match and we try to camp annually.

In Senior Section the girls can take on a vast array of awards and qualifications which range from our Leadership Qualification to the Duke of Edinburgh Award.  It’s also a place where girls can feel comfortable in talking openly about any worries or issues they may have, such as body confidence and mental well-being.  We follow the Look Wider programme which covers themes such as Fitness and Independent Living through to the Arts and Community Action.  We organise regular residential weekends at Lorne and one of our girls recently had the opportunity to take part in an international camp in Switzerland.

 

Kids’ Club Friday 7pm-8.15pm (Fourth Friday, Every Month)

Kids’ Club is a Bible-based junior youth club for kids in school years P1 to P6 which runs September to March on the last Friday of the month (unless otherwise listed).  Club nights are packed with fun and excitement and include lots of high energy games, crafts, quizzes, stories, food and a bag of tuck to take home.

There is a different Bible story theme carried through the game and craft activities each night and once the noise levels are brought under control, a short story for the night is delivered in many imaginative ways.

 

Youth Fellowship Tuesday 7.30-9.30pm

For teenagers aged 15+ youth fellowship meets informally in one of the home of one of the leaders.  There is a usually a Bible-based DVD, time to talk things through and supper.

 

Wyldlife Saturday 7pm-9pm

Wyldlife meets weekly for kids from Year 6 to Year 9.  Everyone comes together for some big group games and activities for boys and girls before we listen to one of the leaders giving a short talk on the gospel. We always end the night with food.  We also have camp in Scotland each summer.
