Open to all young people in Year 6 and above.

Children are very welcome to stay with their families in the services if they wish or join in their own small groups. The 10:45 service is suitable for all ages on the first Sunday of each month.

Creche and Scramblers

10:45 service

Toddlers, pre-schoolers and Year R children meet alongside each other in the Grove room, with easy access in and out of the main church building. Each session will follow a particular story from the Bible with fun activities, craft and singing. There are plenty of toys and free play for the children to enjoy also.

Explorers

10:45 service

Children from school Years 1-5 meet together in the Evens room to learn about a passage from the bible and pray together. This theme often links in with the younger groups story so families can chat about it later. Craft, fun activities, chat and videos all come together to make this a fun session just for them.

Encounters

10:45 service

Young people in school Years 6 and above meet in the Prayer Attic. An informal setting to catch up with friends, discuss issues from the bible, pray and do fun activities together.

Young People’s Group

9:15 service

A lovely group meets twice a month for children in the 9:15 am service. On the 4th Sunday of the month there is Godly Play, a fun way to hear a bible story and respond to it through creative means. The 2nd Sunday of the month children are invited to a group to chat about a bible story and take part in activities to explore this further. Both groups meet in the Grove room as the service starts and then head up to the Carpenter room.
