Aims To provide a fun, relaxed atmosphere where children can explore their beliefs and come to faith in Christ. To teach them to worship God and live holy bold lives filled with the Holy Spirit.
To help our children remember the amazing words of the bible we have action memory verses which stick in children’s minds.
The kids programmes available are as follows:
All age group for 3-11yrs. At this service we share the first 15 minutes of worship in the main church, so the youngsters can see the gifts of the Holy Spirit and take part. At 9.15am the children leave the service and have a time of learning together (with differentiated material within the session) in a family environment. The children will learn about specific bible stories and learn to apply to their lives through puzzles, stories, drama, craft and interaction with other young people.
Baby Room Available for up to 1 year olds.
Crèche aged from 1-4 years, these children leave the service at 11:15am and parents can settle them in our well-equipped creche room before returning to the service. We have regular volunteers and parent volunteers who lead the sessions with bible stories, songs and craft activities. The children enjoy a snack time before parents collect at the end of the service.
Kid’s Church for 4- 11 years is situated in the RAOB (next to the church) and children are welcomed from 10:45am, where they participate in children’s worship, age differentiated groups of fun activities and whole group stories. These children are returned to the service by our leaders to enjoy refreshment’s with their parents and carers following the service.
11+ Our youth leave the service at 11:15am to have a time together learning more about God and His plans for their lives. The leaders create a safe environment for the young people to ask questions and explore their beliefs while being gently challenged as well.
Our Kids Church is headed up by Sam Buck (Youth and Children’s Director). In support we have a team of amazing Kids Church personnel who are all (CRB) police checked. The majority of our material comes from scripture union and is linked together weekly so siblings can enjoy discussing their learning activities at home during the week.
If you have any questions or queries about these activities please speak to Sam on 01935 429214.
