On Sunday morning our young people are all in the main service for approximately the first twenty minutes. During this time the message is aimed mainly towards the younger age groups and often links to the main topic. The groups use a range of teaching materials to develop and nurture the faith of our children, whilst providing them with opportunities to explore their faith and challenge their understanding of the scripture through activities and teaching using various up-to-date resources that have been prepared by their dedicated and faithful leaders and helpers. These provide a stream of creative, biblical based teachings.
Our Junior Church groups are:
- Crèche: 0-3 years. Parents are encouraged to leave their babies and toddlers so that they can join in the main service. The children are looked after and have a large number of toys to keep them amused. Sometimes it is possible to read bible stories.
- Sparklers & All Stars: 3 – 7 years. This group has teaching, craft and games based around Bible stories.
- Energisers: 7 – 11 years. Interactive teaching – seeking to make God real. Craft, collage, quizzes, games.
- New Spirits: 11 – 16 years. Deeper bible teaching dealing with issues in line with young people of today. Quizzes and games are often used to include all of the children.
The first Sunday of every month is a Family Service where all but the crèche remain in the main service so that families are brought together in the worship.
