A GREAT PLACE TO BE!
Linking in with our Family Service at 11am, we have four children’s groups catering for all ages from 0 -11 years old. We also run a number of mid-week activities including kids clubs, a parent & toddler group and a monthly family night. We are involved in local primary schools, hold special events throughout the year and a highlight is our weekend away for our 8-11 year olds
Cre`che – for babies & toddlers 0 – 2½ years old
Open from around 10.30am to 12.30pm on a Sunday, our cre`che provides a safe yet stimulating environment for babies and toddlers up to 2½ years old, so parents can attend the Family Service. This facility is staffed by well-trained and experienced volunteers who love caring for little ones.
The Ark – for 2½ years – school reception age
After attending the first part of the Family Service, children between the ages 2½ years and school reception age can join this fun group, which is held in a room themed around the well-known bible story. We provide a safe and fun environment in which to teach children the basic principles of the Christian faith, using stories, craft activities, games and singing.
The Den – for school years 1 & 2
After attending the first part of the Family Service, children in school years 1 & 2 can join this group
Wildside – for school years 3 – 6
Following the first part of the Family Service in the church itself, children in school years 3 – 6 can join their friends in the Wildside group. A jungle-themed room provides the exciting backdrop against which we teach them about the Christian faith, using a mixture of activities, which might include puppet shows, games, and small group work.
A children’s group for reception to Year 3, Zoom is held at the church on Thursday evenings at 5pm – 6pm. Fun, friendship, games, craft and Bible stories. A great time to make friends and get to know God better!
For the whole family! Fun, crafts and activities to explore the Bible story ending with a hot meal together. Every third Thursday of the month 4pm - 5.45pm. Upcoming dates: January 19th, February 23rd and March 20th
Our Parent & toddler group takes place on Friday mornings between 10.30am- 11.45am, at the church. With a very informal, relaxed atmosphere, it’s a great place for mums and dads, grandparents, childminders and carers to meet new people and build a supportive network – after all, raising a young family can sometimes be exhausting and isolating, so it can be a great comfort to have a like-minded friend or two to chat to.
Little ones can play freely with our collection of toys and games, and take part in activities such as craft, singing and puppets. Refreshments are available for attendees of all ages. Find out about our special events and parenting lunches on Facebook. For more details call the church office on 01255 679585 or email us
For those in school years 4 – 6, this group takes place on Friday evenings 5pm – 6.30pm. Friendship, consoles, games, sports, crafts and great Bible discussions.
