Junior Church meets all year round and all the groups follow a theme that enables the children and young people to think more about God, learn more about God and to gain a greater understanding of what God means for them. During the Summer (July & August) we complete a Summer project which enables everyone to be absorbed in art and craft.
There are special services at various times during the year. For example on Mothering Sunday the children and young people give all of the women a daffodil posy, Sunday School Anniversary in May, a Thanksgiving Service where our young people receive a gift and we lead the Nativity Service.
We meet a few times a year to have a social time together. The giving and receiving of fellowship even at a young age enhances our Sunday morning time together. Although the majority of our children are from Church families we are beginning mission on the local estate and occasionally new children come to join us. The staff meet regularly to plan events, talk about concerns and consider ways in which we can further our work.
The Creche (Goldfish group) caters for pre-school children and their parents. They use the room upstairs that overlooks the worship area. We try to ensure that parents feel part of the worship as far as possible.
Our next group is Angel Fish and caters for children in Foundation Stage, Year one and Year 2 at school so children aged 4 to 7. Our third group is Rainbow Fish and is for 7 to 11 year olds so for children who are in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6 at primary school.
Sharks is our last group and is for young people who attend secondary school, so for 11 years and over.
Why not come along and join us at Junior Church and be part of the fun and fellowship we enjoy together.
