Children are central to our way of thinking about the gospel. Jesus was clear -“let the children come to me and do not prevent them”. We have dedicated one whole side of the church for parents and children to be present during worship and to absorb what it is to see those around them engaged in worship.
On the first Sunday in each month we have baptisms and the children instead of leaving for Children’s church, are encouraged to engage with the service.
Children’s church takes place every Sunday (apart from the first Sundays in the month when baptisms take place). It is led by four teams of teachers, all with approved DBS certificates who follow a curriculum which we have devised and which is built around bibles stories interspersed with teaching about the main Christian festivals through the year.
Th children leave the church before the bible readings and return in time for the Communion
