Have you got children that you would like to bring to church? We run a specific programme on Sunday mornings just for children! We also offer other activities during the week.
Our aim is to make sure every child can be themselves in a safe and welcoming environment. Our leaders are DBS checked and comply with our Safe-to-Grow policy.
We want the children to have great fun whilst learning more about Jesus and meeting with Him.
If you have any questions about the programmes we offer, please fill in our Contact Us form.
Crèche (0-3 year olds)
The crèche meets during the service on Sunday mornings. Children under the age of three, with parents or without, are catered for with stimulating games, activities, singing and play.
Motivators (3-11 year olds)
Motivators meet on Sunday mornings during the second half of the service, usually from 11.00 – 11.45.
Mini Motivators: 3-7 year olds
Mega Motivators: 7-11 year olds
Our leaders and helpers all want to encourage, or motivate, us to become more like Jesus. We don’t have to sit still and be quiet all the time and we don’t have our parents with us. We do lots of fun things like having stories, sometimes with story sacks or puppets. We usually play some games or act out the stories and have quizzes. There is often a craft activity which can sometimes be messy. And please don’t forget the snack time!
The children and their families also meet up at other times. Over the year we usually have a New Year’s party, a Summer picnic, a trip to Wicksteed Park and other fun outings.
