We have groups for children at most Sunday services. All our groups are focused on introducing children to Jesus and teaching the Bible in an exciting way. The sessions often include a Bible story and discussion time, as well as crafts, games, singing and prayer. They often end with a drink and snack. All children are welcome to come along!

The age groupings vary slightly between services.
