A NEW after school club with a religious theme opened at Seaton Primary School on Monday (November 10).At King's Club, which runs from 3.20pm to 4.15pm, children aged between seven and 11 can play games, sing songs, do craft activities and hear stories about Jesus.The club has been organised and will be run by three volunteers from Christians Together in Seaton.Friends Jo Bull, Jane Johns and Debs Brazier, represent all the town's churches in this new venture.Debs, family worker at Seaton Methodist Church for the last two years, said: "We have had the idea for a while that we would like to be doing things like this. "Jane does Brownies and I do children's clubs at the church and in the summer helped run a holiday club at my church as part of Hope '08."There are various clubs we do between churches during the week and it is nice to have something at the school so we are on the children's territory"It is different from going to church, which might be a bit scary for some." The three women will be at the club each Monday but take it in turns to lead each session.Debs kicked off this week with the baptism of Jesus, using Mark's Gospel. The activities and songs, together with Bible stories were linked to this.Jo helps with Torchbearers Sunday school for younger churchgoers at St Gregory's Parish Church, while Jane attends Seaton Baptist Church.
