Junior Church

We love having children in our church and want them to take part in as much of the service as they are able. Here is what we normally do as church with the children: the first twenty minutes or so we spend together singing, praying and reading the Bible. Then, for 3 Sundays a month, the children leave during the sermon to look at the same stories from the Bible in their own age groups. We all look at the same part of the Bible together so that we can chat about it as a family afterwards. In their age groups the children will be taught by trained and DBS checked leaders.

Creche:

We provide a creche area in the small hall for breastfeeding and as a place to leave your child up to the age of three. The older children (usually 2 years old) have a more structured time of Bible story, colouring and a song. There are toys for the children to play with.

The purpose for the crèche is that parents will, with confidence, leave their children so that adults can enjoy the service without distraction. If a child in crèche is distressed a crèche leader will come and find the parent.

3-5s

We have a group in each service for those children who have had their 3rd birthday up until they start year 1 at infant school. This group meets in the church office. They learn through story, painting, crafts and songs.

5-11s

Children in primary school years 1-6 are all together as this helps the older children to serve the younger children. This group meets in the main hall.

Surfs Up

Surfs Up is for the young people in High School (Year 7 up). The aim for this group is to prepare them to enter the main family of the church. We encourage them to join the main service as soon as possible.
