Guardians of Ancora clubs in the south west

Story type:
  • South West England

In the south west we have set up and run clubs using Guardians of Ancora as the basis for an event session lasting approximately 45 minutes

Using Guardians as a mission event

With the start of a new school year two new Guardians of Ancora clubs have launched in the North Devon area.

In Barnstaple our SU volunteer “Playground Pastor” Tracy is helping to run a group with Chris Eales. The children are very keen and enjoying the club, with some good discussions being generated already.

A second Guardians of Ancora club is in Tawstock. Following an exciting It’s Your Move Outdoors session last term and a whole school Guardians of Ancora assembly, the take up for the new Guardians of Ancora club was overwhelming. So much so that we have had to make a waiting list for another Guardians of Ancora club to start as soon as the current one finishes after six weeks. The club is going well with lots of great discussions. Contact the south west for more details on Guardians of Ancora clubs in the south west)

Across the other side of the region a further Guardians of Ancora club is being organised by “The Wave” in Swanage. Contact the south west team if you would like to know more about this group.

Many of the children from these events have had no contact with Scripture Union and don't attend church.

The sessions run for up to six weeks to fit into school half-terms. There are loads of resources to help run a club that will fit your situation, whether that is in a local school, after-school club or for a special event.

Do you like this idea? Is it something you could explore doing locally? If so, please contact us.
