School Years Reception – Year 2
School Years 3 – 5
Children are a precious and important part of our church family. From the tiniest newborn to little toddlers to boisterous ten year olds, we want to support mums and dads as they raise their children to know God and understand His ways.
KidZone is the name we give to our Children’s Ministry.
We have four groups: Bunnies (0-2yrs); Hedgehogs (2-4yrs); Badgers (Reception, Yrs 1-2) and Owls (Yrs 3-5).
We’d love to welcome you at our KidZone check -in desk when you arrive. We begin in the main auditorium for a time of worship with the congregation. After the worship we follow our group leaders upstairs to our newly renovated rooms. Each group has their own comfortable space with age appropriate resources. Our Sunday sessions may include some worship, a Bible Story, games, activities and a snack break. We are currently following a curriculum written by ‘The Gospel Project’ which teaches the gospel through the chronological telling of Bible Stories. We have a key question and memory verse to learn each Sunday.
Once a month all the groups join together for KidZone Worship where our own KidZone Band leads us – if your child(ren) can play or is learning an instrument or singing, we’d love for them to get involved!
Our parent led creche called Bunnies takes place in our easy to access mezzanine floor overlooking the auditorium. It has a variety of toys, simple activities and play areas for babies and toddlers. We have wireless headphones for parents/guardians to listen into the service. There are also feeding and nappy changing facilities.
We also have different events on throughout the year where we get to hang out and have fun together so please look out for those on our webpage calendar.
Safeguarding our Children and Youth
All our children’s and youth workers undergo standard DBS checks and are subject to a safe recruitment procedure and ongoing training. Parent helpers are also required to fill in a personal information and self declaration form. Our child protection policy is available on request. Below you can download our Safeguarding Code of Conduct which all children and youth volunteers agree to follow at all times whilst working with your children and young people.
