Sundays for all ages...

Children, young people and families are a very welcome part of our church family. During the first part of our main Sunday meeting both the children and adults spend time together, singing and sharing in the gathering of the church family. During the Bible talk, children from ages 0–11 have their own age appropriate Bible teaching. Find out more below:

Crèche

When: Sunday mornings
Where: Crèche room at the church building
Age: For babies and toddlers aged 0 – 3

In crèche we provide a safe, comfortable and fun place for children under 3 to stay during the morning meeting. This is so that parents can benefit from staying in the main meeting. We also take the opportunity to point our younger children and toddlers to Jesus as we sing songs, do craft, play together, read Bible stories and learn from God’s word.

Lighthouse

When: Sunday mornings
Where: Various rooms at the church building
Age:  For children aged 4 – 11

Our aim in Lighthouse is to have loads of fun while we learn about Jesus from God’s word. We get stuck into a Bible passage each week through games, challenges, dramas, puzzles, treasure hunts and much more! Lighthouse meets in three age groups: preschool to reception, school year 1 to year 3, and school year 4 to year 6.

Breakfast Club

When: Sunday mornings
Where: The church building
Age: For young people aged 11 – 18

Waking up to church! We meet at 9am to share breakfast and to look ahead at what we’ll be finding out in the main meeting that morning. At 10.00am we join the adults to learn from God’s word together.

 

...and during the week

SOS is a fun packed evening of catching up with and making new friends, playing games, eating and discussing the Bible together.

Youth Small Groups
