Over the last few months Hero Factory Kids Church has grown a lot, which is so exciting but it also means that we have to re think the way we do some of our events. Every year the day before the Christmas Special we have hosted our Play in a Day. This is where the children learn a part of the play to perform the following day in the Christmas Special.
This year we are so excited to be having two Christmas Special services taking place on the 20th December at 4pm and 6.30pm. Because of this we will be doing Play in a Day slightly differently.
Instead of having the children perform the play on the stage and having to work out which child is attending which service, we will be filming our version of the nativity story. The filming for this will take place on Saturday 5th December.
The film will then be put together and played on the night at both services. After the film is shown any HF children who are at that service will be invited to get up and sing a song that we are going to be learning during Kids Church. So it doesn’t matter if you attend the 4pm or the 6.30pm service, your child will still get a chance to be on stage and sing a song as well as being in the video.
Saturday 5th December is very close and you may have already made plans but even if you your child can only make it for 10 minutes we would love for them to still come along and say their part and be a part of the play.
Filming will take place between 2pm and 4pm on Saturday at Influence Church in Richmond for all of Hero Factory.
Once the film has been made and shown at the Christmas Special we want to put it online. This means you have the chance to watch it again and share it with your friends and family. We understand that some parents may not want this which is totally fine. In that case we will edit the online version so your child is not included. However we would still love them to come on Saturday 5th to play their part in the version being shown at our Christmas Special on Sunday 20th.
If your child can attend then please let me know.
