We love being part of a community with plenty of families and provide children’s ministry for all ages. Our heart is to invest in our children so that they would grow in their faith and confidence and love Jesus, love church and love others. We hope that your family feels welcome and enjoys your time with us. If your children have any additional needs, allergies or if there is anything else we can support you with, please let our team know (they’ll be wearing grey children’s ministry t-shirts).
If you are visiting, we would love for you to feel able to encourage your children to join us, knowing they will be cared for in a safe and fun environment.
All of our children and youth workers have undergone a ‘Disclosure and Barring Service’ check and have experience with young children. Our children’s ministry is broken down into three groups, all of them meeting upstairs in the building from 10.50 to 12 (the team will notify you when they are leaving the main hall during the worship time). Should your child need you during the service, we are able to alert you using an alert system that will appear on the screen during the morning. The Rockhoppers and Rockclimbers children will be brought down to you at the end of the meeting. The Rockery need to be collected from upstairs when the meeting finishes.
A typical morning
On a typical morning, we leave the main meeting during worship and go upstairs and have our own worship time altogether followed by a short teaching time before splitting into our three groups – Rockery for 0-3 year olds, Rockhoppers for 3-6 year olds and Rockclimbers for 6-11 year olds. We all follow the same theme each week so that all ages can share what they have been learning during the morning. A healthy drink and snack is offered during the morning.
Rockery (0-3 years)
We provide toys and craft activities creating a safe and fun environment for your children to play. You are welcome to leave your child with our team, or stay with them. You are also welcome to feed your babies and we have a comfortable sofa area in the Rockery room.
Rockhoppers (3-6 years)
We learn memory verses together, pray together, enjoy craft activities and have time to play together too. We encourage the children to develop good friendships and grow in their understanding of God’s love for them.
Rockclimbers (6-11 years)
We learn memory verses together, pray together, enjoy craft and other activities, study the Bible and play games together. We encourage the children to develop good friendships, grow in their understanding of God’s Word, develop spiritual gifts and grow in their personal walks with Jesus.
