Children's Ministry

children

We run a variety of activities and programmes for children aged 0-11. We aim to make sure every child can be themselves in a safe and welcoming environment. Our children's workers are DBS checked and have first aid and safeguarding training. Special events are mostly in school holidays. Sunday and midweek term-time activities are detailed below.

Junior Church

We want children to have great fun whilst learning more about Jesus and meeting with Him.  Our Sunday morning Junior Church sessions use Scripture Union resources with age relevant bible teaching and prayers, plus crafts and games. 

An announcement is made during the service when it's time to go out to the groups. Please follow the crowds and say hello to one of the leaders.
