Andy did a great job as ever serving our children. They enjoyed themselves and they engaged with God. Andy also helped serve our wider event by fun all age games in the afternoon.
Andy you are a gift!
Dereham and Attleborough Churches : Weekend Away
The Raise team worked their socks off delivering appropriate, effective sessions which helped our kids reflect on and grow in their relationship with the Lord. Thanks so much!
The cardboard testimonies showed that the kids had a wide variety of learning experiences helping them connect more fully with the Lord
A fabulous opportunity for pupils to explore their concept of spirituality and reflection of the world around them. Thought-provoking and an establishment of a longer term opportunity for the pupils in our school.
The session was inspiring in terms of showing how ALL pupils can access prayer / reflection spaces whether they have faith or none. Inclusion was a very important message that was conveyed excellently by Andy. We look forward to his return in the New Year.
"Great guy, great faith, great passion, great engagement with the children, and great time!" [read more]
Norwich Central Baptist Church : Church Weekend Kids Sessions
Andy's passion and desire to see both children and those who work with them, released into all God has for them. This permeates the activities Andy plans and his creative communication both upfront and one-to-one.
Being part of Epic weekend - working alongside Andy and the team was such a huge joy and privilege. It is the best children's event I have been part of...as one of the kids said 'The title sums it up "EPIC is EPIC"
"Despite Andy only knowing a few of the kids and even those he did know, he doesn't know that well, he engaged at a level that immediately welcomed them into the session - everything became possible. I'm so grateful because Andy had taken the time to listen to me as I set the scene of where we are on our adventures with God and what God has been saying to us - To make space for him and Andy responded. The session added enormous value to what we are aiming for, it was a very precious morning.
The children were totally up for encountering God, so that's exactly what they did. Thank you."
"It was wonderful to see how the children engaged with the activities, and to be able to see the build up of responses over the week. The prayer space had a great variety of activities which really grabbed the attention of the children and aroused their curiosity." [read more]
"We loved it and the children got so much from it. As I did a follow up a few days later my 7 year olds remembered it so well.
The Easter Experience was Moving and Immersive. Visual and kinaesthetic learning which was really effective. The faith and dedication of Andy Jones and the volunteers was fantastic and very infectious. Really really recommend this session!" [read more]
"The Neon Party the Andy delivered was excellent. It was fun, fast moving and gave a clear explanation of Jesus the Light of the World in a way that was both fun and engaging.
I would not hesitate to book for another event"
"The kids that attended absolutely loved their time with Andy and his team. Andy created a safe, fun-filled, and totally engaging environment for the kids and delivered not just good teaching and games, but he facilitated a genuine encounter with Jesus which our kids were buzzing with the next day. Brilliant!"
