Friday Zone

Friday nights have never been so good, if you love a challenge, sporty games, chill our spaces, chat times, crafts and more fun activities, then you will love Zone. 

Zone is split into Zone 1 (Year 3-6) and Zone 2 (Year 7-11) based on the age of your child. 

Zone 1 happens from 6:30-7:30pm and Zone 2 is 7:45-8:45pm

A typical Zone 1 session includes a tuck shop (with a bag of sweets for available for £1), table tennis, sports, games, challenges, consoles and an 'all together' time exploring a theme or narrative from the Bible.

A typical Zone 2 session is a bit more laid back, including toasted sandwiches, fruit and refreshments available (all for under £1), pool, air hockey, group discussions around themes/narrative from the Bible as well as more challenging games and activities.
