On Sunday mornings (except the first Sunday of the month) we have groups for children and young people between three months and 16 years. We begin church altogether in the same room, and then the children and young people go out to their groups together.
You can read about the Bible class for 11 to 16 year olds here. Creche and Sunday school details are below.
We care about the young people who are in our church, and take our responsibility to look after them seriously. For that reason all of the adults involved in our young people’s work are CRB checked and we have a safeguarding policy in place.
Creche (0 – 3 years)
If you’re happy to leave your child with our helpers, then as long as we have enough helpers that day, you can leave your child in the creche and return to the service.
We have loads of toys so your child can play while you worship.
We’ll call you back in if there’s any problem (nappies to be changed, or if your child’s distressed for any reason) and we’re just next door to the main room where the service takes place, so you’re never far from your child.
Alternatively, if you would like to stay with your child, you are welcome to stay with your child when you take them out to creche.
Sunday School (3-11 years)
If your child is three or older they can join our Sunday School. Sunday school is split into three groups:
- 3 – 4 years
- 5 – 7 years
- 8 – 10 years
All three groups meet in the same room at the back of church, and begin by singing songs together, then divide into separate groups for the teaching. There are crafts and the activities and teaching are tailored to the age of each group.
We don’t run Sunday School to just keep children occupied, or to stop them getting bored. We run it to teach the children in our congregation about God. We hope and pray that they’ll grow in their faith as a result, and that’s why we put so much effort into getting it right.
In the summer Sunday School has a holiday club which runs in place of normal Sunday School, and each Christmas there is a nativity service that the children enjoy being a part of.
