Children

We are passionate about our children and committed to helping them discover for themselves what it means to follow Jesus, whilst having lots of fun too!  

On Sundays (apart from on dates when we celebrate as Messy Church) we run structured activities in age related groups for primary age and pre-school children.  At both churches, the children start worship in the service and then go out to their groups after the second worship song; to be collected at the end of the service by parents or carers.

On Sundays:

Kingdom Kids: 4-11 years

Sunday St Luke’s 9:30am
Sunday St James’ 11:15am

Kingdom Kids aims to help our children grow in God through quality experiences that are engaging, fun and meaningful; hoping they make some friends to share this with along the way.

Creche: Under 5’s

Sunday St Luke’s 9:30am

Crèche is structured to engage the very young of our church community in God through crafts, songs and Bible stories. Parents are very welcome to stay or leave their children.

Praise Patrol: 2-4 years

Sunday St James’ 11:15am 

Praise Patrol is structured to engage the very young of our church community in God through bible story, songs, craft and plenty of time to play.  Parents are encouraged to leave their children with our fantastic leaders, but if it is your child’s first time you are welcome to stay whilst they settle.

Baby Zone: 0-2 years

Sunday St James’ 11:15am 

The Baby Zone is an unsupervised area for little ones to go with their parents or carers.  This is a space for them to play where there will be age appropriate toys, books, drinks and snacks available.  There is a speaker linked to the service, baby changing facilities and high chairs available.  If you would prefer to stay in the main worship area, there is an additional baby soft play  with seating around.
