Our Children and Families work is headed up by Jo Batch, who joined us in 2017, bringing a wealth of experience in schools' work and children's ministry. She is a gifted puppeteer who always has a big smile and warm welcome ready for everyone that visits one of the activities she leads.

We offer groups for children of all ages at both of our Sunday morning services, which begin at 9.00am and 11.00am. These groups are an opportunity for the children to grow in their own faith in Jesus and to build good relationships with their peers and the adults who lead the groups. Each session includes fun, games, snacks, drinks and activities on a biblical theme. The whole family begin the service together for the first 20 minutes and then the children go to their groups for about an hour, returning for the final few minutes of the service.
Our Friday evening group is from 5.30pm to 7.00pm for all children from school years 1-6. We offer activities, craft, games and special, themed evenings for children from our church and the local community. All children are welcome to come and join in the fun, make new friends and encounter Jesus’ love for them.
The Little Ones parent-and-toddler group offers a friendly welcome to everyone who cares for young children, from birth to school age, within the local community. Each session contains messy and active play, craft, song time, a baby area and an enclosed outdoor space when the weather permits.
