WWWYC Christmas Party 2015

On Wednesday 10th December WWWYC held it's Christmas party.  It was held (sort of early) as it was felt many would be involved with Christmas activities at school or other organisations.

Once the younger group, who also had their Christmas party on the same evening had gone home, the young people were invited to play the "hanging doughnut" game.  The game is about who can eat the doughnut (which is hanging on string from a rope across the room) with out using their hands.  The doughnut must not drop on the floor but eaten whole from the string.  The winner took 1minute 6.1 seconds.

They also enjoyed the "chocolate game" where you attempt to eat a bar of chocolate (square at a time) wear a hat, scarf and gloves.  However, you only get a turn if you throw a 6 on a dice.  In order to give the person eating their way through the bar is to throw and pass on the dice as quickly as possible!

The young people brought some food in for all to share, with drinks being provided.  After food, they played the "flour game".  Flour is placed in a bowl and turned upside down.  A sweet is placed on the centre of the flour.  Each player takes a turn to cut away a slice of flour.  Who every causes the sweet to fall off the top has to pick the sweet up with their teeth.

There was also an opportunity to play "apple bobbing"

Local Paper Article

As there is a regular number of young people at WWWYC the need for a third regular adult helper was identified.  A letter to the representatives as "Churches Together In Maldon" (which it was hoped would go out to all churches in Maldon) resulted in one adult coming forward to help out.  He is also connected to the "Bar 'N' Bus" activity that takes place on Friday evening at the Prom.

With 16 very active young people who use nearly every room at the church, keeping them safe is important.  If they are cooking, doing craft or playing outside, a third set of eyes and hands is needed.  When the bouncy castle is out, one leader is always supervising it.

There is still a need for at least two adults on a rota basis.
