One day children were brought to Jesus in the hope that he would lay hands on them and pray over them. The disciples shooed them off. But Jesus intervened: “Let the children alone, don’t prevent them from coming to me. God’s kingdom is made up of people like these.”
Mathew 19 Verses 13 to 15 (The Message)
All our groups from bubbles to Xstream head out of church after the family slot into the back hall of the village centre. This Time is called The Core.
After about 20/25 mins together those groups head to their own areas as follows.
Bubbles (Infants and Pre-School)
Aimed at children aged 0-5 years, Bubbles is an integral part of our Sunday morning children’s ministries.
We head to upstairs hall in the church. Our 3-5 year olds are encouraged to take part in purposeful play and are given a bible story time, craft, singing and snack during the session .
Meanwhile, the crèche, for 0-2 year olds, is available throughout the service. Here, the babies are cared for by other mums on a rota basis. If required, parents are welcome to stay with their babies in the crèche.
Young children are hugely important to our church and the work of Bubbles ensures that they get off to the best possible start from a very young age.
Splash (P1-P3 Children 5 to 8 years)
Aimed at children who are in P1-P3 at school, Splash takes place in the cafe in the village centre.
Splash is a really fun environment that gives our youngsters the opportunity to explore their relationship with God.
On a typical Sunday the children will learn about the Bible, play games, sing songs, learn Bible verses and make crafts.
Let your child dip their toe in the water of learning about God and bring them along to Splash!
Xstream (P4-P6 Children from 9 to 11 years)
Xstream is another important part of our Sunday morning children’s ministry. In Xstream we cater for children who are in P4-P6 at school.
Which takes place in the upstairs hall in the village centre.
One main ingredient of an Xstream session is fun. We aim to give children an enjoyable time they develop a better understanding of bible principles.
In Xstream, children can meet other children of a similar age, and can learn together about God’s love whilst playing games, doing craft activities and listening to enjoyable and thought-provoking stories.
Your child is sure to enjoy the Xstream experience.
