Children and Youth

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 The Break. Young people above Year 9 tend to stay in the service.

5.30 Club is a Sunday afternoon social group for school years 5 to 8 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.


Youth Home Groups are open to all young people aged 11-18. We meet in 2 groups – boys and girls. From 6.30pm-8.30pm, we eat a good meal, study the Bible together and pray for one another. And of course make great friends in the process!

Holiday Bible Club

This takes place in spring half term and is designed for children aged 5 to 11. Our older youth assist as young leaders alongside adults.

Epic 24

For young people in secondary school – games, food, rock climbing, trampolining, sleepover all in a 24-hour period of exhaustion and fun!

Youth Socials

Social events are planned during the half term and holiday breaks. These could be anything from Nando’s, to night walks or Pizza Express to progressive suppers!

Church Weekend Away

The children and young people have their own specialist programme of activities and teaching.
