Good News Story – Gosport URC – Bubble Fun!



Duggie Dug Dug does it again!!

8am on a cold but bright Friday morning, members of Gosport URC Children and Families work, team, arrived at one of our local junior schools to help prepare for something the School community had never before experienced;  Duggie Dug Dug’s Crazy Science praise Party.

Doug, supported by Jon, a professional actor, wowed the children by presenting his Crazy Science at 2 extended assemblies, one for the children in years 5 and 6, the other for the younger children, those in years 3 and 4.

The children and their teachers, were treated to Doug’s unique array of crazy science and easy chat about our amazing Creator God.  While learning about types of energy and sublimation they learnt how  Jesus wants us to bubble out with love for one another, just as his life bubbled out with love for others and were fascinated by examples of chemical reactions which were used to illustrate how God can take something small, like a simple act of kindness and produce amazing results.

The children and staff were fully engaged with all that Doug was doing and loved the mix of WOW moments, science, humour, and opportunities to interact through action songs and involvement.

The crazy science event, funded by Gosport URC St Columba, as part of our children and families work, was followed by a Bubble Praise party at the church, the following day. The church was at full capacity with over 200 people from the church and surrounding community attending.

It was great to see families from many local churches coming together as well as members of our regular church groups and others from the school community. The sense of fun was tangible as people of all ages queued to be put in a bubble, and hearing the Gospel explained in simple terms led to others responding to an invitation to find out more about becoming a follower of Jesus.
