CHILDREN'S MINISTRY

"Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it."

Proverbs 22:6

We love running activities and events - most of which are listed below - but our real passion is for helping parents & carers to disciple their own children at home. Below you can find our ever-growing "at home" section which is full of great resources for use at home with your own children and household.

Our regular children/families events

On Sundays

  • DJs (Disciples of Jesus) - a group especially for school years 1-6 during the 11o'clock service. DJs is a fun-packed time of discipleship-training for children.

  • Creche+ - for children aged Reception Year and preschoolers. Creche+ is much more than a place for your little ones to hang out during the sermon! There's songs, stories and prayer time for the little ones and their parents/carers are welcome to stay if they wish.

  • On the 1st Sunday of each month we hold our "church family meal" - Holy Communion - during the 11o'clock service. There will be a craft organised for kids during the talk.

  • We will soon be reopening a designated area for babies in the main church building so parents/carers have a comfy spot to be with their very little ones while they are safe to wriggle, kick and crawl.

  • Sometimes we stay after the service and enjoy time together at our ‘Picnic & Play’ event.

Midweek

  • Stay & Play takes place from 9:30am to 11am every Tuesday in term time.

  • After School Club is open immediately after school on Wednesday, and ends at 5pm. There's lots of time to chill, play games & relax; and we end with a 20-minute group time. One group is for the junior school kids, and the other is especially for the adults! The kids have loads of fun in their group learning about Jesus, whilst the parents/carers share a cuppa and talk about how we can best raise our kids, whilst their little ones can play in the playpen or sit on laps.

  • We also run a few other occasional events and services with families in mind.
