On Sunday mornings we run a Sunday School for children aged between 4 and 10 years. They stay in the main meeting for worship and at about 11.10 leave to go to their classes in Sunday School area, returning about 12.10 pm.
Did you go to Sunday school as a child: a Bible story, a chorus or two and some colouring? Well times have certainly changed. Sunday mornings for the children are action-packed, fun-filled, God-experiencing times! It’s amazing what you can do in just one hour.
Each week a dedicated team prepares a Bible themed morning for our primary school aged boys and girls. The theme changes each term. The stories are acted out or told in imaginative ways which brings home the relevance for us today. Games are played, models and other crafts are created and the children are encouraged to pray and expect God to answer.
Every month there is a special morning, dedicated to experiencing the presence of God in a more tangible way. The emphasis in these times is to feel the Lord and know when he is moving. The children get to be ministered to in prayer and often minister to each other, too.
We feel very strongly that God will do the same with the children as he is doing with the adults – if we just use simple language that they can understand. We expect them to be born again, filled with the Spirit and move in gifts of prophecy, healing and prayer – and do you know what? They do!!
Creche facilities are offered for babies from birth to 18 months in our baby creche. This is open from the beginning of the meeting for feeding and changing of babies. Toddlers from 18 months to 4 years are cared for in the Toddler creche which is open from 11 am. You are welcome to accompany your child and stay to see them settled in if you wish.
For five days during the long summer holiday we usually run a themed club for two hours each morning for primary and pre-school children. With games, crafts, competitions, songs and Bible stories, great fun is enjoyed by everyone. This year’s event was called Space Academy and as you can see a great time was had by all.
As an antidote to all that is so unpleasant about Halloween, we host a brilliant themed party for primary school children every 31st October. With games, crafts, food and special teaching to give a positive, Biblical approach to an otherwise nasty and even dangerous evening. Much safer for your children than ‘trick or treating’!
