We're almost at the end of our third week of The Gathering's Homework Club and it's been an incredible ride so far.
From Precious being trained in the role of Facilitator just days before we started to our opening day with a ton of teething issues, to kids finding their feet and getting cheeky, it's all been good.
We had a very helpful visit on Monday from some of the Green Shoots team, they loved what they saw and gave some very positive feedback and suggestions which we're now working on.
We also decided to change the times of our Friday sessions because all the local schools finish at 1pm. So I had the joy of visiting each family and took the opportunity to find out how the parents and grandparents feel about the Homework Club. Well the response was overwhelming!
The response that really touched me was of a young mum who cried for her son back when we had our Maths@Home Presentation. Today she was recounting how her son had told her about getting 100% in one of the quizzes, she was as excited as he was and it was pure joy to see her reaction.
I'm loving how as a church we're winning favour amongst the community. Thank you LORD!
