Children

At Christ Church, we love learning together from the Bible and having fun, on Sunday mornings and midweek.

Sunday mornings

Babies

A special room is available for parents to care for their little ones if needed during Sunday morning meetings.  With a one-way window looking into the main meeting and an audio link, we hope you will feel more ‘part of things’ and able to feed or care for your child as you listen in.

Children’s talks

A regular feature of our mornings is a talk for children.  These usually follow a topic or theme for the term.  Children are invited to come to the front and join in.CC0013 (800x533)

Most Sundays, we meet as all ages for the first half hour or so, and children then leave for their teaching groups.  Each group has a dedicated team of leaders and enjoy learning together from the Bible.

In these special Sundays, we enjoy learning together for the whole service and only the pre-school (Crèche and First Woods) children leave us for their activities.

Midweek

Activity clubs with Bible teaching (term time). 

Each club has a dedicated team of leaders, who plan a programme of activities and outings around the Bible teaching and discussion theme and suited to the children in the club.  We enjoy a variety of active games, drama, cooking, crafts, outings …
