Our vision for our children’s ministry is to nurture, raise and equip children from our communities to know Jesus and change the world as He did.
We believe all children are precious to God – and they are precious to us too! Our heart is for children to know God Ioves them.
Through dedicated and enthusiastic teams we provide groups at a number of different times throughout the week. The safety of children is of paramount importance to us. All of our teams hold current enhanced DBS certificates, undertake regular safeguarding training and have signed up to our safeguarding policies.
At present we are following government advice and have had to close our Sunday gatherings and mid week meetings. We are hoping to share together remotely on Sundays and throughout the week via Facebook, Whatsapp and Youtube. Please follow our News and Updates page for more information on this.
We run groups for children during the Sunday Gatherings. We appreciate children learn in different ways so we use every way we can think of including songs, crafts, games and stories. We want everyone to enjoy exploring God’s Word and His plan for their lives together, and hopefully make some new friends along the way. At our AM gatherings we generally run two groups ranging from our youngest children (0-4) and a group for 4-11 year olds. At our PM gathering our children join together in one larger group.
Whether you are part of our church or just visiting and have a child with special needs, please do get in touch with our leaders responsible for Children’s Ministries to discuss how we can help them to feel at home and the best ways that we can include them in our activities.
On your arrival you can check your child in using the automated check-in system. Check in will open from 9.15am, 11am and 3.45pm. When the children and young people will be registered in their groups, we ask parents to collect their children at the end of each session.
Storylines runs fortnightly for year 4 school age until the end of year 7. From year 8 some of the youth can have the opportunity to become a young leader – our current young leaders do an amazing job to help run the session. At Storylines we love to spend time chilling together, chatting and eating food as well as playing games and activities. As well as this we love to be able to learn more about God and what He wants to say to each of us in our day to day lives.
This is a relaxed group which is open to any child or young person… whether they have no faith, are not sure about Christianity and want to find out more or are fully committed to their faith. This is a safe place to come and explore what you believe.
We usually meet on Mondays 6:30pm-8:30pm at Broadmead Community Church.
