Children are an integral part of our community, and we welcome them at all of our services. We have both a crèche and a Sunday School run from the church centre which is adjoined to the main church. We aim to respect the views of children and to be inclusive of their needs, and to provide a safe environment in which children and young people can find out about the Christian faith in a supportive and creative atmosphere. On Sunday mornings, except when there is a family service advertised, activities are arranged for Children to coincide with the main Sunday service at 10.00am.
Activities in the Sunday school include craftwork, music & songs and Bible study at appropriate levels. The children then come into the church to receive a blessing at the communion and to show their activities to an enthusiastic congregation in the church. The group then 'bound' back to an area near the rear of the church where there are tables laid out with puzzles, books pens etc to use until the end of the service.
All of our volunteers have had the relevant CRB screening; the Church guidelines for safeguarding can be found here.
