Children and Young Peoples

All those leading or helping at any of our meetings for children or young people have been checked and cleared through the Disclosure and Barring Service.

Sunday School
Sunday Morning during term time from 9:30 till 10:20

Our Sunday School is focussed on teaching children about Jesus and encouraging them to trust in him. Sunday School is from 9.30 to 10.20 each Sunday morning during term time and is for children aged 3 years and upwards. We begin with everyone together for singing, quizzes, learning a memory verse, mimes, Pictionary, stories and whatever else we can think of that is an enjoyable way for the children to learn. We then split into smaller groups for a Bible story and activity sheets. We finish with a drink and biscuit. We hope that Sunday School is an enjoyable time for the children to learn about Jesus, the King of kings, and we very much look forward to having your children with us.

 

Mother and Toddler Group "Twinkling Stars"
Thursday mornings during term time from 10:00 till 11:30 (there is a 50p charge per family for each session)

This group is for pre-school children with their carers. It is run voluntarily by members of the church who have all been DBS checked. We begin the meeting with free play which includes a craft activity. Just before 11, we have a short optional Christian story in a different room and then we all meet for a little together time. This is when we encourage the children to sit together, sing a few choruses, celebrate any birthdays, listen to any news and have a drink and biscuit. We see the group as a stepping stone before nursery and it is lovely to stay in touch with some carers after the children have left the group.

 

IMPS (Instructional - Musical - Physical - Spiritual}
Friday evenings during term time from 6:15 to 7:15. There is a charge of 15p per child for each session.

This meeting is for 5 to 11 year old primary school children. It is run voluntarily by people from the church who have all been DBS checked. We begin with a game and then the children will be split into groups and rotate around three activities – running around games, a craft activity, Christian story and singing. When the children have done all three everyone meets back in the hall for a drink, biscuit and any notices etc before going home.  We try to provide an environment which is fun yet safe and are pleased that many of the children who come have been coming for a number of years.

 

FNYG (Friday Night Youth Group) is for Y7-Y11 who are a friendly little group, we meet for an hour from 7:30 until 8:30 for a wind down at the end of the week and have a simple format. We start with a talk about life and the bible and where the two meet then after 10 -15 minutes we break off to various activities. Sometimes we play board games or active games, some people sit around and chat others like to have a kick about with a football, occasionally we do something crafty or creative such as decorating gingerbread men (then eating them). Once in a while people may even do a bit of homework if they like (not much), and the activities change from week to week.
