Children and Youth
We have over 100 children and youth in our church family and have a wide range of activities on Sundays and midweek that are age-appropriate.
Sunday morning groups run at our 9.30am, 11.15am and Riverside congregations. Approximately 15 minutes into the main service the children and youth head out to Crèche, Tots, The Mix and Refresh.
The 5.30 Club is a Sunday afternoon social group for school years 5 to 9 which will help the children transition from primary to secondary school, and from our children’s to youth groups. This is run fortnightly in the home of a church family – lots of games and snacks. Rooted is for years 10-13 and where we can really get to grips with difficult topics over tasty pizza. It begins at 5pm in the home of a local church family and afterwards we head on over to The Evening Service.
Holiday Bible Club for children in school years Reception to Year 6 is coming.
13th – 16th February 2018, with extra special church services on Sunday 18th February.
We need some top class recruits to help investigate the person called Jesus. Training for this important mission is going to involve learning about Jesus from the Bible, games, craft and gunge. Yes. Gunge.
Youth Home Groups are weekly fellowship groups for ages 11-18 happen in separate boys and girls groups. We meet at the houses of leaders and enjoy food, Bible study and prayer.
EPIC events are days (and sometimes nights) jam packed with the most epic adventures! We have been swimming, trampolining, indoor climbing, playing badminton, crazy golf and have had sleepovers! Plus we often try and play our favourite indoor wide-game ‘Bandit’.
Youth Weekend Away happens every two years, alternating with the Church Weekend Away. It’s a great time to spend some unhurried time hearing from God’s word and spending time with him, plus we do exciting activities and enjoy some great food!
