Children and Young People's groups

At our 10.30am Sundays service we start with everyone together as we share news and gather to worship God. After about 5 minutes the children are invited to go to groups to continue worship and learning and playing in a fun, relevant and age appropriate setting. All the leaders are DBS vetted and also trained.  The children are then brought back to their parent's in time to receive communion or a blessing and to sing the final hymn or song.

On 4th Sundays everyone stays together in church for a lively and interactive all age service which lasts just under an hour

 

Details about the Children and Young people's groups

Younger Children: 

Under 5's Group

Parents or carers of children under 1 often prefer to keep  children with them in church and so we provide a mat with baby nest and age appropriate toys towards the back of church so that parents can feel part of the service and their baby has room to move. There is a dedicated room at the back of the church for under 5's where age appropriate toys and crafts are available and children can play together and also enjoy a bible story, song and craft. 

 

Junior Church

This group is active in learning and worship using all the senses. Children are made to feel welcome and there is some time to play and share news with each other and their leaders. They do some worship that is fun as well as meaningful. They learn about the Christian faith from the bible with a focus on understanding as well as application. The children also will be learning different ways to pray. The leaders use stories, drama, crafts and games to help with the teaching and the fun of the group. 

 

 

Older Children :Distinctive
