Hope Club – 日本語による集まり

The Hope Club is a gathering of parents and pre-schoolers with songs, stories and games for children done mostly in Japanese.  But we have translators for those who only speak English.  There are opportunities for parents to fellowship over coffee, tea and snacks while the children are playing.  Hope Clubは2015年秋より、地域の日本人の方々に貢献したいという願いを持って、ベサニー教会にて始まりました。海外での暮らしの中でも、日本人、また日本につながる方々が、日本語で子どもたちを遊ばせ、寛ぎながら気軽に情報交換できる場を目指しています。 毎週の子どものためのプログラム、茶菓を交えての交流、牧師先生からの短いお話に加え、季節ごとの行事等、沢山のイベントが行われます。親子でのご参加、また大人だけのご参加も大歓迎です。 <日時>毎週火曜日10:30〜 子どもプログラム(お歌と絵本)11:00〜11:50 自由遊び& スナックタイム11:50〜正午 […]
