Kids Club meets on Sunday morning from about 10.50 until  the end of the Morning Service, we learn about God’s world using words, music, pictures and actions.  The highlight of our year is we all come together to present the story of Jesus’ birth, in our own way.  Come along and join us.

Rainbows   :  What do Rainbow Guides Do?  Rainbows have fun!

They meet in groups called units where they take part in all sorts of activities such as playing games, making things, listening to stories and singing songs. Rainbows have adventures, share and learn with each other.  Who can be a Rainbow?  Rainbows are the youngest group of the Girl Guiding family, for girls aged 5-7.  When girls turn 7 they usually go on to Brownies.

When do Rainbows meet?  Rainbows meet for an hour once a week during the school term.  We meet on Thursdays 5.45-6.45pm at Marchmont St Giles’.  There are also some occasional special Girl Guiding events or activities at weekends or during holidays.
