Our Sunday morning services start at 11am with a time all together, and then there is the opportunity for children to go to small groups to continue worshipping and learning in their own way.
- The very little ones have a supervised play room where they can be left, or you can stay with them if they don’t want to be left. You will be fetched if they become distressed at any stage!
- There is a group for 3-6 year olds where the children are told Bible stories. This is a small and lively group which is led by the same two people each week. Lots of different activities take place and the children have fun.
- The older children follow Scripture Union material and resources. Numbers and ages vary from week to week but all are made welcome. The children have chance to chat and ask questions and learn about God, the Bible and his church. The group is led by various people on a monthly rota. This enables the children to get to know different people in our church.
You will see when the children go out – please just go with the crowd and your child will be shown to the correct place. You can then re-join the service.
However, there is no pressure at all for children to leave and they are very welcome to stay with you for the entire time. If they get a bit noisy or restless, don’t worry, we have a sound system that can cope with that! But if they are distressed you are welcome to go with them to crèche or Sunday School.
Once a month we have an “All Age” service when all but the youngest children stay together for the whole service.
