SLIDESHOW - Queensferry churches host Commonwealth fun

Waiting for Video...

Commonwealth Games fever hit Queensferry last week with a church kids’ club with a real sporting theme.

Open to primary school aged children, Fit for a King at Queensferry Parish Church offered daily adventures including keep fit with Auntie Jessie, sing songs, games, crafts, bible stories, biscuits and a show-stopper drama ‘Party at the Palace’.

Our photographer captured them taking part in parachute games, making team posters for the countries taking part, dancing, singing and taking part in several sports events.

And, just like at the Commonwealth Games themselves, the sun helped the event shine.

Rev David Cameron said 
40 children turned up each day, and that the sporting theme - including their own Clyde the mascot and the children split into five countries for team events - had gone down well.

The sporting message also tied in with the story of the king Jesus and his message of peace and compassion, he said.

‘‘It’s been a fantastic week, the children have joined in very enthusiastically.’’
