Children & Young Families

At the moment our  work with children and young families is partially online or suspended due to the coronavirus, although we are gradually opening up our groups as soon it is safe to do so.

Please see below for information on what we operated before the pandemic and what we’re currently offering now.

ABC (Adults, Babies & Children)

We’re very excited to be reopening our baby and toddler group with new Monday and Tuesday afternoon groups starting 7th and 8th June from 1pm-2pm. From September we’re hoping to be back to morning groups again but this half term it has to be afternoons as church is unavailable at the moment in the mornings.

Numbers are restricted to 20 adults per session so we’re asking that only 1 adult attends per child please so that as many children as possible can come along, entry is £2 per adult.

The 1hr session will include free play, a music time and story time. We’ll have large toys to play with, including the ride-ons, wendy house and walkers and also puzzles, books and a craft to do with your child. Babies should bring their own blanket and toys to use please – we’ll provide a mat and chair each. Please bring your own refreshments if you’d like them and wear a mask (unless exempt).

To book and for more details please join our ABC Facebook group, where the link to tickets will be posted each week, or contact the church office. https://www.facebook.com/groups/231376034133721

Genesis – Youth Life Group

Genesis would normally run on Monday nights from 6pm-7.30pm. It’s a younger version of our adult Life Groups aimed at children of high school age. The group would eat dinner together before sitting down for Bible study, worship and prayers, finishing off with a game at the end.

Currently we are meeting online on zoom from 6.15pm-7.30pm. Together we do Bible study, worship, prayers and games. If you’d like to come along, please contact the Church office.

Sunday School

During our Sunday 10.30am services we would normally have three Sunday school groups running.

Bubbles for ages 3-6

Xstream for ages 7-10

Explorers for age 10+

We are currently meeting online at 10am each Sunday via zoom for 20-30 minutes of catching up and bible teaching. If you’d like to come along to this, please contact the Church office.

Crèche

During our services and some other events, children aged three and under would normally be welcome to go into the Crèche. The well-stocked and well-maintained Crèche is run by volunteer members of the church (all our volunteers have the necessary DBS checks).

Friday Youth Groups

On a Friday night we would normally run two youth groups which all children are warmly invited to.

Five Alive runs from 5pm-6.15pm and is for children aged 7-10 years old.

The Noise runs from 6.30pm-8pm and is for children aged 10-14 years old.

Holiday Clubs

Three times a year (Christmas, Easter and Summer) we would normally run a Holiday Club in Church aimed at primary school aged children. Usually running over 3 or 4 afternoons, the children learn a Bible story through the use of crafts, songs and games. Snacks are also provided.
