"A place where I come to learn about God and have fun!" (One Twist-er’s response to the question "What is Twist?")
Twist have a great time every Sunday in the Extension, learning from God’s Word, finding out how it relates to them and having a lot of fun! We have some fantastic leaders who work hard to make sessions relevant and enjoyable to this age, and no two sessions are the same. Children have recently started trying to bring their Bible each week, in exchange for a sticker– we’re trying to encourage them in how important it is to read God’s Word, and to be able to use their own Bible in Twist and then follow it up at home with the rest of the family. We have a monthly memory verse which children are encouraged to practise and learn at home as well as during the sessions - there is a chocolate frog prize at the end of the month for anyone who has learnt it!
It is a great group to lead, as the children have so much energy and enthusiasm, and seeing some of the things they are capable of, and some of the thoughts and questions they have about God even at such a young age, is both an encouragement and a challenge to us as leaders. Twist are really good at bringing friends and visitors along with them to share in what we are doing - anyone is welcome to come and join in the learning and fun!
