“START CHILDREN OFF ON THE WAY THEY SHOULD GO AND EVEN WHEN THEY ARE OLD THEY WILL NOT TURN” – Proverbs 22:6
The Crib: Ages 0-3
The Crib meet in room 2 off the coffee area, 10.40am. Parents come and collect their children from room 2 at 11.50am.
TRIBES: pre-school to y6
The QUEST journey begins here in The TRIBE. The TRIBE is made up of 4 smaller TRIBES: EARTH (pre-school and reception). AIR (y1 and y2), WATER (y3 and y4), and FIRE (y5 and y6). In these Tribes we will provide tailor written, interactive teaching designed to engage all their senses in a journey discovering God, learning His plan for their lives.
In The RANGERS, it is now time for a slight change to the journey. They explore further, they seek on a deeper level – they help steer and guide the rest of the TRIBE, using what they have learnt from their explorations.
The Rangers have a fantastic weekly programme for them including interactive Sun morning teachings, opportunities to discover and serve in their gifting, a mid-week ‘discipleship’ programme, region wide youth gatherings and a weekly social every Friday night (term time).
The CORE: y10-11
The CORE, the heart of the matter. Here, they will begin to lead. As young people head towards a time in their lives where they become increasingly independent, our hope is that they learn to become increasingly dependent on their Maker. It’s time to jump, fly, run, leap, bound and dive into what we hope will be a life long Christian journey.
The CORE join in with the Rangers with the weekly programme but with a bit more focus on ‘mentoring’ with key leaders throughout the weeks.
The PULSE is a rhythm, a beat, it keeps going continuous and steady, nothing can shake it. The PULSE is an informal group to explore faith, pray, worship, laugh, cry, dance, be still, talk, listen….. ‘there is a time for everything (Ecc. 3:1-8).’ In the midst of the pressures 16-18 year olds face, this is a space to be real and to let Jesus invade.
Quest meet at 10.30am in the hall and join the main service at about 12pm. During the evening service there is usually a Children’s group for those aged 9-14 – please do check that the evening group is running if you are planning to come.
