We believe that children of any age can start learning about and building a relationship with God, and so our Sunday morning groups for young people – toddler, kids and youth – are geared towards them having the opportunity to come to know Jesus for themselves and know how to live for him. Our wonderful team aim to make the sessions creative and fun for those who come!
The groups we run on a Sunday Morning are as follows:
This pre-school aged group provides a creative and fun-filled opportunity for under 5s to have a varied time of free-play, accessible Bible stories and teaching about knowing Jesus with Scraps the puppet and related craft activities. The expectation is that babies and toddlers of two years or under be accompanied by a parent. Currently, about once a month, there is a Parent Play session when the normal Launch Pad doesn’t run, but the room and the toys are available for parents to look after their children.
Ignite- ages 5-11
Primary school aged children are encouraged to join Ignite where they will be able to learn about knowing Jesus for themselves and what that means for their lives. This is done through looking at what the Bible says and using fun and creative games, songs, prayer, craft activities and drama.
Youth- ages 12-16
Secondary school aged young people are able to attend a session that runs most Sundays during which they look at what the Bible says about knowing and living for Jesus. There is opportunity to discuss and apply the things that are taught and also pray and encourage one another. They also meet Friday nights in term time, 7pm at The Source, for social activities and to learn about and explore their own faith.
Each of our groups is run by a team of volunteers passionate in Children’s/Youth work who want to see growth in their understanding of who God is and how that can change their lives. Each team member has had a full DBS check, and has undergone safeguarding training. The church has a robust safeguarding policy and is eager to do everything possible to protect the children and young people in its care.
