Children’s Work

Purpose Statement

We are here to share Jesus with everyone, put God first in everything, grow in friendship with God and each other; living it God’s way 24/7.


To see children whose hearts are filled with God’s joy, who know they are loved and what it is to love and support others, showing this love in action.  Children who worship God and pray persistently, seeing God at work.  We desire for our children to have a personal relationship with Jesus and a deepening understanding of God’s word as they grow.

Sunday Mornings

First Steps – 0 to Pre-School age and meets in the Abbey and Milford Rooms for craft, free play, bible stories, prayer and songs that are age appropriate.

Pure Hearted – reception to School Year 6. Meets in the Small Hall where we start with some free play then have a time of teaching and games followed by time in smaller age appropriate activity groups where we study the Bible in more detail and what it means to us today. We also spend time praying and worshipping together. It is sometimes messy, sometimes chaotic but always fun and God-centred!

During these Sunday morning groups your child(ren) will have lots of fun whilst learning more about God, but they may get messy.  You have been warned!
