CHILDREN AND YOUTH ON SUNDAYS DURING COVID-19

As we resume physical services from 19th July, our children’s groups on Sundays will look very different to normal. Please visit our services page and click through to read the information pack about the arrangements and arrival times for children’s groups.

Throughout the summer months, we encourage those aged 11 and over to join the adults in the main Sunday services, whether in person or watching online.

As we stream our Sunday services during this season, we encourage those families who are unable to attend church to tune in together and participate. You can also find our series of videos for Treasure Seekers (age 3-6) below, plus our dedicated resource pages for children and youth. Please make use of these if you are at home on Sundays.

Below you can read about our regular Sunday groups for youth and children when restrictions are not in place:

YOUTH AND CHILDREN'S ACTIVITIES

Each Sunday morning service includes Creche, Treasure Seekers, Kids Alive and YP1 as below.

Please also note arrangements for Summer Sundays and occasional all-age services.


CRECHE FOR AGES 0 TO 3 YEARS

A well-equipped creche is available supervised by DBS checked staff. During their time in the creche all children will have the opportunity to join with a short time each week hearing about God and the Bible, join in with songs and do some craft plus play with many toys too! All activities and resources are age and stage appropriate.


TREASURE SEEKERS FOR AGES 3 TO 6 YEARS

Treasure Seekers join with the main congregation for the first part of the service and then leave for their own group part way through the service.  Singing, craft, music and Bible stories put together by an experienced team – a great time for little ones.


KIDS ALIVE FOR AGES 6 TO 10 YEARS

Kids Alive join with the main congregation for the first part of the service and then leave for their own group part way through the service.  Interactive and lively, they learn to see themselves and God through the Bible.


YP1 FOR SCHOOL YEARS 6 TO 9

YP1 join with the rest of the congregation in the Church on Sunday mornings  before leaving for their own group during the service.  Our skilled Youth Team is led by the Youth Minister and tuned into where pre-teens and teens are at.  Lively discussion, straightforward Bible teaching and searching discussion: the young people love it!


YP2 FOR SCHOOL YEARS 10 UPWARDS

YP2 meets on Sundays at the church (6:15-7:30pm) to join with the rest of the congregation for a time of sung worship and teaching.  Following light refreshments immediately after the service, they meet for their own programme (8:00-9:15pm) of Bible-based discussion geared to their age group.


SUMMER SUNDAYS

From 28 July to 1 September there will be one morning service starting at 10:15am.  After the usual 10-15 minutes all together, children aged 3-10 years will leave for a mixture of Bible teaching, indoor and outdoor games, crafts and activities.  Crèche will operate as usual and YP1 will stay with the regular congregation.

Very occasionally we may have an all-age service on a Sunday morning. Check the calendar for details of upcoming services.
