Our Sunday Clubs

Our youngest members, from 0 - 5 can go into Sunday Clubs from the beginning of the service at 10:30. Older children join the first 10 minutes or so of our Sunday services before, if they wish, joining our Sunday Clubs for 5 - 11s. These run every Sunday at 10:40 except the first Sunday of the month when there is an exciting All Age Service. For more information on our clubs please click here. 
        

All Age Services

Children are encouraged to get involved in our monthly All Age Services in a variety of ways from being on the door to greet the congregation, reading from the Bible, taking part in drama and singing.

Our Children's Ministry Ethos

We are a community of believers which teaches and models how to follow Christ. Our mission is to support parents who wish to lay down a foundation that in time will lead a child into a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. We aim to partner with parents in communicating the greatness of God, the glory of Christ and the power of the Gospel.
With that in mind we teach:
  • that the Bible is the word of God and the handbook for life
  • who God is
  • who we are in relation to Him and our state of separation from Him through our sin
  • who Jesus is and what He has done for us
  • how we can meet with God daily through readng His word and prayer
  • the role of the Holy Spirit in equipping us to live for God
Our ministry to children is based on the principles that it is Bible-centred, child-targeted, fun, safe, life-relevant and age-appropriate.
Our aim is to provide the best hour of every child's week; we pray that the impact of the ministry will last the other 167 hours!
