Children's Church

IMG 7894Each Sunday morning during term time at 9.30am

In this church we welcome all children whether or not they have any knowledge the Christian faith or if their parents attend a church.  

IMG 8611Children’s Church meets on term time Sundays except when we have a Family Service when the children stay in church and are invited to join in the running of the service. Children's Church meets in the main church hall located in the front car park. Children are escorted there and back by the leaders of children’s church.  Babies and children can stay in church or go out to children's church as you prefer—there are colouring bags available in church.

We use professionally produced material that is relevant to the different age groups, tailoring concepts to meet the needs of children within the group.  We encourage the children to think for themselves and ask questions that develop their critical thiunking and their faith, often challenging the older ones in the group to look deeper into the meaning of what they are thinking about. We aim to help young people discover for themselves that Jesus is alive and active in our world today.

The children start the service with everyone else in church. They will then be invited to go out to the Church Hall. There is a range of different activities, games, craft and songs each week as well as prayer. They come back into church to join their families for communion. At the end of the service all children in attendance are invited to the front of church to show the congregation what they have been doing that morning.

In all that we do, our underlying aim is to give the children a taste of God’s love and acceptance, in a world that doesn’t always make sense. We are keen to encourage the children to ask questions, think for themselves and grow as people. We aim to help the children discover for themselves the good that Jesus did in his life and the good we can do in ours if we try.
