Children & Youth
Children and young people are an essential part of the church family. As a whole church, we are committed to helping them grow and develop as followers of Jesus from infancy to adulthood. We have a range of special events and groups to help with this. Our capable youth and children's team runs all groups in a safe and fun environment.
All Together Services
On the first Sunday of each month, we have an all-together service at 10.30am, which is meant for adults and children, so there are no other children’s groups that day.
On other Sundays, at 10.30am we have special groups for children and young people.
Our groups meet during the 10.30 service in the church hall on Sundays during term time. Children and young people initially come into the church for the start of the service and then head off to their classes.
- Gateway (Reception & KS1) and Explorers (KS2) are our Sunday groups for children of primary school age. We have games and crafts each week, and we meet God in the Bible.
- Pathfinders (KS3) and Revive (KS4) are for young people of secondary school age. We have social time and do a Bible study dealing with real-life issues.
- We usually run a small supervised Creche for younger children, giving parents time to focus on the worship. There is also a room in the church building where you can retreat with younger children during the service if needed.
123 Club is our midweek playgroup for children aged three and under and their parents/carers. It meets on Tuesdays from 9.30am to 11.30am.
We run an annual Holiday Club in the last week of the summer holidays, which is very popular.
We run occasional Saturday afternoon children’s events called The Treat, including at Easter and the end of October.
We also put on an annual Nativity at Christmas.
