What we do

Children & Youth

Children are a full part of our church family! We place a great priority on making church accessible to them, helping them to discover God and having fun as they make friends.

Babies

We have a dedicated area for parents of babies, with changing facilities and toys. There is an audio feed from the main service so you don’t need to miss out. Of course, babies are welcome in the main service with you.

 

Pre-School and Primary School Age Children

Children have their own activities and they can be left with our trained helpers. All our helpers are police-checked and we have a safeguarding policy that we treat very seriously.

 

Little Stars

Children aged three and four remain with the adults during the first part of the main service and then enjoy their own group after worship. Each week this group explores a simple Bible story and truth through craft, story telling, singing and play. The aim of this group is to instil a few very simple but central truths about Jesus and to help children become confident and prepare them for Launch when they turn five.

 

Launch

From five years through the end of primary school children are part of Launch – our space themed activities where Astronaut Al and Cosmonaut Connie introducing the weekly themes to the children. Our excellent Launch Team Leaders help the children explore each theme and Bible verse through games, worship, craft, prayer and teaching. The children have opportunity to be rewarded stickers for contributing and log their acheivements each week.

You’re welcome to stay with your child to help them settle, but if you’re back in the service and your child needs you one of the helpers will come and get you.

 

Elevate

For young people in secondary school and up there are activities after sung worship in the main service. The youth enjoy hot chocolate, games, videos, look at Bible verses/themes and discuss what this looks like for us living today.
There are other opportunities to meet up with each other at camps and Friday evening youth get togethers as well. Check out the calendar for youth events coming up.
