Young families and children

Young families and children are very welcome at our Sunday services. We see them as an important part of our church community and like to make them feel at home.


Crèche

During the service, you are welcome to take young children out to our crèche area where there are plenty of toys to keep your little ones entertained. Parents are asked to stay with their child. However, we do have a system where the service can be relayed to this area, so you won’t be missing out on the service! If you would like the crèche to be available when you visit, please speak to the person on the door when you arrive.


Junior Church

We spend the first part of worship together (usually about 20 minutes) and then the children and young people go out to meet in separate groups.

We have 2 Junior Church groups on a Sunday – one for Primary school age children and one for Secondary. We spend time exploring the Christian faith through fun activities, games and sometimes food! Everyone is welcome whether you are visiting just for one week or making a home with us for longer.

We often have all age services where the children and young people explore the Christian faith further as part of the congregation, and get involved practically in the services.
Christmas is a big occasion for the Junior Church where they take the lead role in our Festival service with dramatic offerings from young and old alike.

We also have a Junior Church orchestra which accompanies our songs on specific occasions throughout the year. All are welcome from beginners to accomplished musicians.
As well as meeting on Sunday mornings, we gather for Junior Church lunches throughout the year, host an All Hallows Eve party, take a trip to a pantomime at Christmas, and have even been on a one night camp. Greenbelt Christian Arts Festival is a favourite with many of our church members too. We are always looking for new adventures to do together!

What we believe


We are a Christian church and believe all can have relationship with God.
We believe this can happen because of Jesus, who invites us to follow him.
 

Is it just Sundays?


Absolutely not! God is with us all week long and we aim to lead lives that show it. We’re not perfect and we do make mistakes, but we want to make a positive difference in everything we do.
