We have a cosy creche that is set slightly apart from our worship space, but with full length windows and speakers that enable anyone going out with young children to still feel very much part of the service. There is a good selection of books and toys for 0-3s.

Junior Church

We lead Junior Church sessions twice a month for Children and Young People which take place during Sunday worship. We usually start the service together, with the children leaving after the second hymn.

Through these sessions we explore the Bible and weekly readings in different ways using our knowledge and interests to make the sessions fun and enjoyable for all.

On the other Sundays an activity sheet, pens, paper and books are made available for independent use.

Mindful Junior Church (first Sunday of the month)

These sessions begin with some relaxation, such as a mindful space activity or some simple stretching exercises.

We use our senses to explore the Bible story to learn more and understand the story and its meaning in more detail.

The morning finishes with a Zentangle drawing session. Zentangle is an easy-to-learn relaxing, mindful and fun way to create pieces of work on small card tiles using ‘tangle’ patterns. There are hundreds of tangles and we will learn one or two each session which will be themed around the topic.

Thrive Junior Church (Third Sunday of the month)

The Thrive sessions will be led monthly using the ‘Roots on the Web’ website.

The sessions will be led by different adults with different hobbies and interests so the sessions will never be the same 2 months in a row!
