Part of our Vision as a whole church is to "empower a young generation to live for Christ", and we seek to do this though groups, services, work in local schools and supporting families.
During our 9.30am and 5.30pm services we run groups where children can learn more about the Christian faith through stories, music, craft and games.
At 9.30am there are groups for children from 3 months up to school year 6 (11 years old). On the first Sunday of the month we stay together in church for an All-Age service.
At 5.30pm there are groups for those in school years 3-6.
The leaders at all our children’s and youth groups are fully DBS-checked, according to our safeguarding policy.
We have two nominated SENCOs (Special Educational Needs Coordinators) within the church, who coordinate a programme to ensure ALL children are welcomed to our activities. All children, are valued as the individuals God created them to be and all will have the opportunity to take part in whichever way is appropriate for them. The SENCOs are happy to meet with families to discuss the individual needs of children and how we can best support them in a church setting.
