Children are very welcome to stay with their families in the main service or
they can attend one of the following groups, when available.  
(please ensure you book a place for them).

Creche and Scramblers

NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME

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

11am 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

11am service

Young people in school Years 6 and above meet in the Grove Room (Drop off at Hall Entrance for signing in please). An informal setting to catch up with friends, discuss issues from the bible, pray and do fun activities together.
