Junior Church and Crèche

We are a family friendly church so we are committed to making our church a place where all are welcome.  Please let us know if there is anything we can do to help you and your family while you are at our church.

Please do not feel that you have to keep your children quiet during our worship. As you will probably find, our morning services are lively and interactive. Most Sundays, children stay in for the first part of the service. Occasionally we have all-age worship, during which crèche and Junior Church stay with the adults for the whole service and the worship is particularly designed to be enjoyed by children of all ages! 

If you come with a young baby, we hope you feel comfortable if you need to breastfeed them during the service. Baby changing facilities are available.


As you would expect, all those who work with children and young people in our crèche and Junior Church are CRB/DBS checked and we work within strict safeguarding guidelines.


Crèche

We offer a crèche for babies and toddlers aged 0-3 years. This is supervised by two volunteers. Crèche has a wide range of age-appropriate toys for your children to play with. You can either leave your child to play under the supervision of our volunteers while you enjoy the service, knowing that if you child becomes upset or requires a nappy change, they can easily find you. Or you can stay in crèche with your child and watch the service relayed through a television screen.


Alternatively, we are very happy for you to keep your babies and children with you for the whole service, so please do not feel you have to use our crèche facilities if you would prefer not to.


Junior Church meets every Sunday at 10.30am at the same time as the morning service. We usually stay in church for the first part of the service and then we split into three groups:


Sparks is for 3-7 year olds

We have lots of fun every week making crafts, playing games, singing songs and learning about the Bible with the help of our mascot Sparky.




Flames is for 7-11 year olds.  

We have fun learning about Jesus and the Bible through games, dance, drama, craft, songs and discussion.




Fires is for 11-17 year olds.  

We have games, discussion groups and the opportunity to ask questions and develop a personal relationship with Jesus. We also encourage our group to participate in church life, in the worship group, sound and PA, welcome and helping with refreshments.




During the last hymn our Junior Church come back to join their families in the main service.
