Children's Church

Sundays // During Main Church Service

Children's Church is a more relaxed version of Sunday School and meets on Sundays during the main service for children aged 4-11. Children attend the service and leave for Children's Church after the Children's address. 

Each week they enjoyed a range of activities including art & craft, games and even the odd movie and popcorn morning all based on a Biblical theme.

Crèche

Sunday Mornings During Worship

Crèche meets on a Sunday morning during our service for Under 4s. Children can be left off at crèche before the service begins and collected after worship. We have a wide range of toys and games to keep them entertained and this is a great way to get them prepared for moving to Sunday School and Children's Church.

Sunday School & Bible Class

Sundays // 10:15 - 11:15

Our Sunday School and Bible Classes are open to all children from Pre-school age to youths of 18. We meet on a Sunday morning in the Church Halls from 10.15am until 11.15am and all are welcome, no matter the age, or ability. We are an all inclusive group open to all.

Our dedicated, loyal and enthusiastic band of teachers want to share the love of the Lord Jesus Christ with all our children so that in God's timing they will know Him as their personal Saviour and friend.

The children are taught through song, Bible stories, craft, prayer, memory verses, drama and quizzes. We also enjoy guest speakers especially with our older age groups.

We have strong links with the other youth organisations in the Church with many of our children, and indeed teachers, attending or helping at these also.

 

Above all we want the children and youth in our community to know that no matter who they are, where they're from, what their ability they are loved. They are loved by a living God and nothing will ever change that.
