A creche is available during the service, if you would like to make use of it. You are very welcome to stay in with your child if you prefer, or you can leave them in the capable hands of our helpers while you enjoy the service.
We have an assortment of toys for babies and toddlers, and we often read a simple Bible story to the children, or sing some songs, while they enjoy a biscuit.
The children usually head out for Sunday School after about 20 minutes of being in the main service. We start with all the children together (ages 3-11) for a couple of songs and sharing. Most of the songs we sing in Sunday School are available to listen to on our Spotify playlist.
After about 10 minutes together, we split into two groups (3-5s / 6-11s) for a Bible lesson and activities. We are currently using the “Click” material for our lessons, which we have found to be very engaging.
This group runs every Sunday morning for young people (11+) to explore how they can connect to God and to church. It gives them to chance to ask any questions they have about the Bible, God or church and to think about what Jesus means to them personally.
The session runs during the sermon (Sunday School children leave the service slightly earlier) and it includes informal discussion and Bible study.
During communion services, the young people will stay in the service for a (shorter) sermon and then go out for 10-15mins to discuss the sermon, while the adults take part in communion. A question sheet is usually provided by our pastor, Dan, to help them as they listen to the sermon.
