Helping the children to join in with our "new normal" worship
Whilst we can't yet restart our full children's programme on a Sunday, the KiC at home bags have become KiC in a box! Join us for a 4pm Family Service at St Andrew's where you will find play and craft resources *in a box per family* to help the children participate in the theme of the service.
Tots' Praise is taking a break
Whilst we are still under strict government guidelines, our Baby and Toddler group, Tot's Praise is having to take a break. We are working on restarting this and it will be moving to a new day... Tuesday mornings. We will still have all the usual elements of general play, stories and sing-song, coffee for grown ups and mini refreshments for Tots but perhaps not quite in the same format!
What we look like "normally"...
Our children's groups
Every Sunday we meet at St. Andrew’s Church Centre on Rogers Lane.
The service begins at 10:45am with everyone meeting together in the main hall. After a couple of songs and prayers, the children depart for their own groups, according to their 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. A few times a year we have special services at St Giles' Church with different parts of the service for children to join in. Check the Home Page
to see what's on this week.
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 for primary school-aged children combines games, craft activities and fun teaching, looking at how the Bible applies to us today. We think about things like not following the crowd, always trying to do what’s right and learn about how Jesus' example can help us.

Safety and Staffing
Each group is led by experienced and enthusiastic volunteers 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. Our aim is to make sure every child can be themselves in a safe and welcoming environment. Our leaders are all DBS checked and have safeguarding training.
We want the kids to have great fun whilst learning more about Jesus and meeting with Him.
