Our fellowship is blessed with many children of all ages.
We have a crèche on Sunday mornings, and provide a full range of classes through “Transformers”, our Junior Church (see below). We also run parent and children’s groups during the week; Big Acorns for children aged 2 – 4 years, and Little Acorns, for children 2 years and under. You can find more information about both of these groups on the Acorns Children’s Group page.
Transformers, our Sunday morning children’s work is led by Eileen who, along with the rest of the Transformers Team, brings experience, enthusiasm and insight into how children learn and grow in their walk with God.
Transformers takes place during Sunday morning service 2 (11:15am – 12:45pm) and is aimed towards 3 to 11 year olds. A team of skilled and trained children’s workers deliver high-energy sessions for all the children, which include; worship, teaching, games, arts, crafts, prayer and plenty of fun! The children are then divided into smaller groups to access age adjusted discussions and activities:
Brook – age 3, 4, Reception and school years 1 and 2
River – school years 3, 4, 5 and 6
If you are visiting for the first time and would like to keep siblings together, or are unsure of which group your child/children should be in, please talk to one of our Reception team on arrival.
