Sunday Groups

Back to Children & Families

Children of all ages are particularly welcome at our 10.30am service. After a short time in church, the children go out to their own groups for stories, games, craft, singing, prayer and more.

Crèche (for under 3.5’s) meets in the Lounge, opposite the main church entrance, where the service is relayed on a screen. Volunteers care for babies and children.

Bright Sparks (Age 3 – 5 (Reception year) meet in the Courtyard room. Children join Bright Sparks sometime after their second birthday when they can cope with a more structured session.

Konnex (Year 1 and 2) meet in the Small Hall. Their group time is still largely based around play.

Enage (Years 3-4) meet in the Large Hall. They explore the bible through story-telling, games and making things.

InterAct (Year 5-6) meets in the Quiet Room.

All the groups enjoy being creative and having fun. We want children to enjoy their groups and for them to be a valuable part of their faith journey. If your child is having any difficulties, please speak to the group leader or to Laine.

The PCC accepts the Diocese of Gloucester’s policy on working with children and young people. A copy of the policy is available from the Church Office. The PCC Nominated Person is Chris Carne, to whom any concerns of suspected or alleged abuse should be referred.

In the crèche we operate a minimum staffing ratio of one adult for every three children aged two years and under.
