About Junior Church and our creche

We provide a friendly and secure environment where children can meet and develop a lasting Christian spirituality. We teach children the love of our Lord Jesus Christ through fun and thought-provoking, structured lessons.


Through their worship, children learn about the Bible and Christian life, participating in stories, art, play, music and prayer. The activities and themes reflect the church calender and prepare the older children for full participation in church worship.

Our current Junior Church leaders are both qualified teachers with their own small children who attend Junior Church. Sessions are taught with the support of a rota of parent volunteers.

Our sessions are aimed to accommodate children from around two years of age upwards. Parents are welcome to stay for the duration or, if their children feel comfortable, parents can remain in the service.

Junior Church takes place during the 10:00 a.m. service on Sundays. The children are called up to attend shortly after the service starts. Junior Church is held in the church hall, which can be accessed via the door to the left of the altar.

New members of Junior Church are always welcome! To register your child, please sign in using the clipboard at the back of the church. New parent volunteers are also welcome.

Children aged 7 and over with a musical disposition may be considered for Junior Choir as vacancies arise.

Creche

We provide a creche facility for younger children and babies. Parents remain with their children in the creche, which is held in the officer room to the right as you enter the church. Parents are welcome to make use of it at any time during the 10:00 a.m. service on Sundays.
