10am Sundays, for 5-11 year olds.
Whilst parents/carers are hopefully enjoying the adult service, the children aged 5-11 join us in Powerhouse. Generally all the children in this age group meet in the rear hall just before the adult service starts at 10.00am. At the beginning all age groups stay together and we introduce the days theme, sing some lively/child friendly worship songs (mostly with actions) and take the Powerhouse collection, the money from which generally goes to a child friendly charity known to us.
We then divide into four age designated groups for the last 30-45 minutes. (All adult leaders and helpers are CRB checked) There will be a bible story (we use Scripture Union material) and some fun activities and games relating to the bible story. Your child/ren may even bring something home they have made to adorn their bedroom or your fridge! The bible passage we study will be written down on the weekly newsheet you will be given on your arrival.
Once a month all the age groups stay together for the whole time. Which is a more informal time together based on the Bible story.
On the third Sunday of the month all the children meet in the main church service for the first 10-15 minutes to give them and the adult congregation time together.
We aim to teach the children in our care Bible stories, themes, Christian values and beliefs in a safe and friendly atmosphere (sometimes even fun and messy !)
