Our children stay with their families for worship and then leave just before 11 0’clock for their groups. (there is a children's worship area which children can use with parental supervision). This is a time that is fun, high quality, age relevant and varied. Combining games with finding out about how Jesus can impact their lives and encouraging them in their own relationship with God.
Creche (0 - 3): Opendoor Kids provides a crèche on Sunday mornings, in the Cloisters area of the Priory Centre, which is available for babies through to pre-school age, and where parents can stay if they wish.
Our kids work aims to release kids to be all they can be in Jesus, no matter how old they are. We all follow the same theme for a term, at the moment we are looking at 'Stories Jesus Told'. Each week we have an amazing team serving, who have all been subject to a DBS check. The children have the opportunity to spend some time building relationships, join in with a time of worship (sometimes led by a member of our worship team), hear a story and complete a craft (take home activity). Each group's activities are planned with the age of the children in mind, sometimes using Scripture Union material. We don't want to limit our children because they are young we want to see them making decisions to follow Jesus, moving in Spiritual gifts and having LOADS OF FUN!
Explorers (Pre-school - Year R): Come to play, explore and learn about Jesus with us in the Guest Hall.
Sparks (Year 1 - Year 3): Come along to hear about Jesus and Spark your own faith and learn how to be a Spark at school and home. We meet in the Guest Hall.
Vibe (Year 4 - Year 6): Vibe meets in the Moot Hall upstairs. It starts with a chill out time in our own room, we enjoy learning more about what being a Christian means and thinking about what that means for us at school and at home.
CHILD PROTECTION POLICY - A Safe Place. All our Children's leaders and workers go through our child protection procedure. This includes being police checked through the Disclosure and Barring System (DBS).
