Sunday Children’s Groups
Children and Young People: Sundays at Emmanuel
There are activities for all ages at Emmanuel on Sundays – far more than just somewhere for the kids to go while the adults are in church. Each group provides a great time, tailored for their individual age range – enabling the youngsters to learn about God in a friendly, fun and challenging way. Within a loving, caring environment we enable each child to develop their own relationship with God, and each other, and encourage them to live and share their faith with those around them.
Birth to 3rd Birthday
Our crèche provides a safe environment for the youngest members of our church to play together allowing their parents to enjoy the church service without being concerned about looking after their children. The children have the opportunity to play with toys, sing songs and listen to stories and we always have a lot of fun.
Age 3 to 5: 3rd Birthday through to end of Reception year.
Our “Mini’s” group are all bubbling with life; we discover about God and Jesus together through stories, play and craft, learning to connect with the bible and start to develop their friendship with Him.
Age 5 to 10: School Years 1 to 5.
At Kids’ Church we like to get to know each other, have fun and find out more about God. We have games, story or drama, prayer time, snacks, craft or activities, music and more! We like to give children time and space to think about God, as well as learning what it means to be part of God’s big family. Sometimes we’re quiet and sometimes we’re LOUD!
Age 10 to 14: Year 6 – 9
As the “Pathfinders” find their way from child to teenager the group encourages a more sophisticated relationship with God, by not shying away from the tricky questions in life. Within a fun and lively environment the young people have the opportunity to grow their own faith and get to know Jesus better.
