We believe that our church has a key role to play in supporting parents and guardians in teaching the Christian faith to children. To do this we have a range of children’s groups that meet on Sunday mornings catering for children from pre-school to young teens.

Weekly Format

Every week we meet at St. Andrew’s Church Centre on Rogers Lane.
The service begins at 10:30am with everyone meeting together in the main hall. After 5-10 minutes the children depart for their own groups, according to the ages. The children remain in their groups until the service finishes, usually between 11:30 and 11:45am. On the 1st Sunday of the month, everyone stays in the main hall for the All-Age Service.

The Groups


For children up to four years of age. A combination of play, songs and story-telling in a warm and welcoming environment make this an enjoyable part of the Sunday morning routine for our youngest children.

KiC (Kids in Christ)

This group of four to ten year-olds combines games, craft activities and fun teaching. It looks at Bible stories and uses games and craft activities alongside more structured teaching times, looking at how the Bible applies to us today. We think about things like not following the crowd, always doing what’s right.


This group for Year 7 and up meet on 2nd & 4th Sundays of the month in the Coffee Shop, have a bite to eat, chat through life’s stuff and see what the Bible has to say that might help us. On the 3rd Sunday, we help out somewhere around the place – with the younger children’s activities, greeting people into the service, singing, in the sound desk, making coffee – we’re a pretty helpful bunch!

Safety and Staffing

Each group is staffed by excellent children’s workers who will seek to present the Christian message in an exciting, age-appropriate and relevant way. The safety and well-being of the child is our first concern. We maintain an excellent staffing ratio and ensure that all our key leaders are DBS checked.
