Children and Young People's Groups on Sunday Morning

Under 3s
There is a designated area within church where parents can care for children under 3 during the service.  They are provided with toys and other activities and we hope very much that they will enjoy their time with us.   The rest of the church family are delighted to welcome our youngest members in this way.

SUNDAY SCHOOL
This group is for children from Nursery to Year One. They enjoy listening, praying, crayoning, making things and playing. There are usually around 7-10 children attending and they clearly enjoy the care and input of the dedicated teachers. We use a variety of material and each child has something to take home and complete, together with something they have made for themselves.  

JAFFA (Jesus A Friend For All)
The Jaffa Group  caters for children in school years 2 - 5.  We have around 15 children attending on a regular basis, they are a lively and inquiring group of children, who relish a challenge. We enjoy a short time of lively worship, various Bible stories, often involving some acting out, creative activities, prayers and games. The children clearly enjoy the sessions as they can’t wait to get out of church and start!

Frog & Amaziah
These two Sunday morning groups cater from age 11. FROG (Forever Reliant On God) caters for school years 6 – 8 and Amaziah year 9 to adult.

We generally have about 20 young people between the two groups. The sessions are a mix of prayer, worship, teaching, drama, group work, food, fun, discussions, music, video clips and art relating to the theme of the meeting to draw out the message for that morning.


Midweek Young People's Groups

We have 2 groups each week for young people.  Both provide social space with the opportunity to learn, ask questions and grow in the Christian faith'.

6-7.30pm on Mondays for school years 6-8.
