CHILDREN

& YOUTH

We acknowledge the discipleship of children and youth as integral to the life and future of the church. As such we provide a holistic programme from early years right through to adulthood. 
CHILDREN
In these times (Covid 19) children are no longer gathering on a Sunday morning in their groups but are joining with the rest of church family for our combined virtual services.
YOUTH
Youth have a weekly programme via Instagram, YouTube and Facebook and they meet weekly parallel to the Sunday Service for Youth Church on Zoom - 10:30am - 11:30am (excluding the 3rd Sunday of the month when we join the Sunday Service for an all age service).
To connect in with our weekly programme use the links below:
 
We are maintaining our connection with our children and youth in various ways each week:
         - 'Sunday in a Bag' for children
         - Online activities
         - Small group pastoral & discipleship meetings
         - Monthly Activity evenings

A creche is open for parents to use with their young infants during Sunday morning services. The creche has a variety of engaging toys and activities to keep your child(ren)
entertained whilst providing a live TV link to the church service so parents may listen along whilst watching their children.

After a short time of worship and family time together with the whole church, the children leave to join their age-related groups. Little Stars share Bible-based stories, simple crafts, games, cool drinks and a snack, as well as a time of prayer.

We provide children’s work for school years 1-6 in our 10:30 services.

 

The children go out to their groups after a short time of family worship. The teaching is Bible-based using biblical characters and stories, and explored deeper through craft, games, activities and fellowship together, set to their age ability. We provide time for our children to pray and experience God and explore how they can apply what they’ve learned throughout our session during the week ahead. They join the Xstream group towards the end of the session for a time of fellowship, worship and snacks. We also look to find the gifts within our children to release them into being helpers within our groups.

YOUTH

Every Sunday the youth come together in our 10:30am service to worship with the wider church family.

 

On the first and third Sunday of the month the youth then go out to  study the Bible passage (the same as the children & adults), and unpack it through games, activities and discussions before applying its relevance to our lives.

 

We also spend time to build a culture of authenticity and faith, through sharing and praying for one another, as well as providing time to listen to & experience God.

Every 2nd Sunday of the month the youth stay in with the Adults and are often involved in the leading of the service.

On the 4th Sunday of the month the youth meet for ‘Big Breakfast’ in which they eat, share, play games and hear a short testimony from someone within the life of the church.

YOUTH

Ever 1st and 3rd Sunday morning school years 10-13 come together for a time of games, worship, Bible study and discussion often related to life issues they face.

 

We explore ways in which they can live out their faith with confidence through providing time to encountering God, sharing and praying for one another. We will frequently meet over food together and at times will join in with the wider church worship evenings, and other joint church youth events, and occasionally will go out on social outings.

2nd Sunday’s the youth join with the adults and every fourth Sunday they can choose between joining with the adults or attending Big Breakfast (breakfast at a youth leaders home and testimony from one of the church family)
