Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”
Proverbs 22:6

We run Sunday School sessions for children aged 4-11 [check this], which start at the end of the worship section of the service.

We like to encourage all children to attend the Sunday School/creche as this benefits both the children and the adults, who can then listen to the sermon with fewer distractions!

“It is our prayer that the children will have a solid foundation on which to build their faith in Christ, have a deeper understanding of the Bible and God, and to love and experience the Lord Jesus Christ as their personal saviour. Most of all, we like to do this in a fun and engaging way to inspire and equip the children as they enter adolescence.”Abigail

The creche is available for children under 4 and is filled with toys, books and activities for young children. The creche is staffed by volunteers each week, but parents are welcome to stay with their children. The creche also contains baby changing facilities and comfy sofas for feeding. Young children should be taken through to the creche at the end of the worship section of the service, when the announcement is given.

“We adore children and are honoured to be part of their learning journey. We feel encouraged to serve in this area. We hope we have much to share and gain in both supporting the grown-ups while they learn from God and the under 4s while they discover and have fun.”
