What do Sundays look like for Kids?

The kids groups run during our morning meeting for children aged 15 months to 11yrs. The children explore Bible stories, sing songs, play games and do craft activities.

Here is all the information you and your family will need if you’re planning on coming along:

Booking

It is no longer necessary to book online before attending our Sunday morning services. Team leaders will take children’s details on arrival at their groups.

Age groups

We have grouped the children into coloured groups as follows:
Yellow  Confident walkers under 3yrs
Green 3-5yrs
Red P1-P3
Blue P4 – P7. 

Family Room

Children not yet old enough for yellow group are welcome to stay in the hall for the service, but if at any point you need a little extra room for nursing or playing, we have a family room available. (With play boxes and live feed to the meeting).

To find the family room, leave the main hall and go through the double doors on the left hand side (as you face the sea-side of the building). The Family Room is the last door on the right at the end of this corridor. A member of the welcome team can direct you if needed!

Dropping off

  • Children in the Yellow group (under 3s) will be dropped off on arrival. The Yellow room is down the corridor on the left as you arrive in the foyer (opposite the Ladies toilets).
  • Children in all Green, Red and Blue groups from (Nursery to P7) will go into the meeting for the initial worship time.
  • Following the second song the children will go to the back of the hall and gather with the leaders who will take them up to their group. There will be a coloured flag that will help the children to identify which leader they go to.
  • If your child needs you to come with them initially to the group then that’s totally fine!

Collection

  • Parents and carers of children in the Yellow group will be notified on the main screen when to collect their child (towards the end of the meeting).
  • The children in the older groups will be brought down to the hall by the leaders during the final song.
  • Please do not leave the hall until your child has reconnected with you.
  • Our church building is not the safest or most secure, so to avoid any accidents, make sure your child/children stay in the main hall after the meeting.

Toileting

  • Please encourage your child to go to the toilet before the meeting begins.
  • If you have a young child who needs help going to the toilet during the session, you will be fetched to help them OR a member of our team will assist them WITH YOUR PERMISSION.
  • If an older child needs the toilet, an adult volunteer will show them where to go and wait outside before accompanying them back to the group.
We hope your child will enjoy their time in our Sunday groups, make friends and learn lots!
Please talk to them about what they are learning and give us feedback on what is working or not working for your child.
