Children playing

Children

We offer a range of groups for children from birth to eleven years old. Through sharing activities and fun with others, we aim to encourage children, at their own level, to develop a relationship with Jesus, learn to pray and discover the Bible.

We aim to do this by:

- showing that we love and respect our children
- keeping them safe
- providing quality, age-appropriate activities
- working along with parents/guardians in being Christian role models
- praying expectantly for God to work in our children’s lives
- having fun!

Sundays

Breakfast Church - At Breakfast Church children are a part of the whole experience of church - they eat with us, take part in what we are exploring and learn with us as we grow as a community.

10.30  service - At the 10.30 service, we have a Baby and Buggy zone within the service or, if parents/carers prefer, a Creche; 'Seek' - a Pre-Schoolers group; 'Explore' - a group for Reception - Year 2 and  'Discover' - a group for children in school Year 3 -6. In addition we have special all-age services from time to time.

Mid-week

As well as being in partnership with Maybridge Children and Family Centre (click here for more info on the centre, inc the latest program and opening times), who use our facilities at 77 The Strand, we run an After School Club called Midweek Mashup on a Wednesday during term time from 4:00pm - 5:30pm and a Parent and Toddler group on a Thursday called Tots and Tinies which runs during term time from 10:00am to 11.30am. Each week there is craft, refreshments and lots of toys to play with. It's a great chance to get to know other parents and have some time together. A small charge per child/family is made to meet the running costs.
