Kids' Ministry

For 1-11 year olds

Kids Church

In Kids church we provide opportunities for children to have fun-filled times with each other as they grow in following Jesus. We gather together to worship, share Bible stories,  pray, play, create and explore our faith with others. It is a partnership with parents and carers to nurture our children's relationship with God.
WHAT WE DO ON SUNDAYS
We follow an alternating pattern.
Community weeks.
We gather as a family in church for 40 minutes of lively all age worship, teaching and prayer before heading over to Trinity house for groups. We have about 30 minutes for theme related activities and snacks before parents and carers collect.
Equipping weeks.
We start off in church for worship and communion before heading over to Trinity House for our kids groups. We spend approximately 45 minutes together for theme related Bible stories, activities, prayer, worship and snacks!

ChurchSuite

We use a clever system called ChurchSuite to look after registration for Kids Church on a Sunday (along with loads of other uses in church life too). To save time, you can register online - or you can do it one of our touch screen terminals on the day too. Once you have registered, simply turn up on a Sunday and search for your kids using your mobile number on one of the terminals then follow the on-screen prompts.

Including every child and keeping everyone safe

Kids Church is all aimed at giving children a tool-kit for life and a confidence in their faith in Jesus. Every child is welcome and valued in their group.
 
Our team is committed to teaching and applying the Bible, encouraging and nurturing every child in their identity with God, inspired and filled with the Holy Spirit ready to fulfil their potential.

We take the safety of our kids very seriously and have a team working really hard to ensure we do all we can, which includes DBS checking all our volunteers. For more information on our safeguarding practices please head to our governance page or contact us.
