On Sundays, children worship with the whole church family for the first part of the service and then go to their age-specific groups:
Sunbeams (0 – 3 years)
Our babies and toddlers are cared for by a dedicated team whose main aim is to make sure they have a happy morning! They play with toys, listen to songs and stories, and make very simple crafts to help them learn about Jesus.
Sparks (3 years – end of School Year R)
Our Sparks team have written an excellent foundational curriculum around the key Bible stories. This lays a solid foundation in a context of fun and age-appropriate activities. Children feel safe and valued and often bring home wonderful craft.
Blaze (School Years 1 – 7)
This is made up of 4 smaller groups called-
- Flames (School Years 1 – 2)
- Lasers (School Years 3 – 4)
- Comet (School Years 5 – 6)
- Bolt (School Year 7)
Blaze is an action-packed, fun-filled, God-centred programme, where the children get to worship, pray, play games, learn from the Bible and build friendships by sharing their lives together.
First, the children register and are welcomed in their small groups. Then they all come together for games, worship, teaching, quizzes and memory verses. After that they finish the morning in their small groups again to connect the learning to their own lives, pray together, play more games, and make crafts.
Children’s safety is of utmost importance and so all our leaders complete Safeguarding training and are DBS checked. We also endeavour to have a First Aid trained team member in our groups.
