CHILDREN & YOUTH

We believe that children are part of the church of today, and we want children to have an exciting experience and to enjoy meeting Jesus from an early age! We have a great team of leaders and helpers, and of course they are all DBS checked and get regular training and on-going support.

Our goal is to teach the clear message of the Bible and its importance in life to children, while having loads of fun in the process! On Sunday mornings 0-16s meet to enjoy friendship, fun and faith. Parents of under 3s are welcome to stay with their children and join in.

Alive!

Alive is our group for 0-5 years its main focus is on essential truths such as God loves me, Jesus is my friend, etc. Stories and verses are read from a Bible to promote its use for this age group. We will show prayer to be an integral part of life demonstrating this when someone is hurt or feels sad. We let children play and enjoy the time whilst teaching the story in conversations, songs, stories and craft.

Powerpack

Powerpack is for 5-11's and its main focus is on the childs’ need to encounter God for themselves and then to develop their relationship with God as part of the body of believers. Opportunities for children to be filled with the Holy Spirit and to receive and use gifts in ministering to one another. A good mix of activities which show that there is no separation between the sacred and the secular, but that God is part of all that we do. Encouraging children to apply what has been taught and experienced on a Sunday through the rest of the week.

Sharper

Sharper is for 11-18's and focuses on getting young people to live out their faith wherever they are. Encouraging them to be disciplined and dedicated to Jesus.God means what he says. What he says goes. His powerful Word is sharp as a surgeon’s scalpel, cutting through everything, whether doubt or defence, laying us open to listen and obey. Nothing and no one is impervious to God’s Word. We can’t get away from it—no matter what. (Hebrews 4:12 MSG)

MID-WEEK

Toddlertime currently runs each week of term time on a Wednesday morning from 9.30 until 11.00.  We ask for a donation of £1 per adult attending as a contribution towards the running costs. There are currently places available so there is no need to pre-book, just turn up on next Wednesday - we would be glad to see you.

The group is for children and their carers. We do organise some activities including games, craft, songs and story but would encourage you to remain with your child and interact with them and the group.
