Our Junior Church
Our Junior Church runs during the Sunday morning church service, from 10-11am.
We aim to make all children from 3-12 years old welcome, regardless of ethnicity, disability, background or anything else! (Children from 0-3 can be cared for in our crèche.)
We usually gather together in our Junior Church room, so that we can go into the Church service and sit together. After joining the adults for worship, we return to the Junior Church room where we learn from the Bible together. Our activities usually include songs, crafts, stories and games and we always have fun and enjoy worshipping God together.
We hope to welcome you to our Junior Church soon.
Jesus said, “let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.” Matthew 19:14
