Children and Youth
Creche:- from babies – 3-4 years. At present a team of 7 helpers provide a creche for babies and toddlers ranging from the age of 8 months to 3 and a half years old.
Sunday School: a team of 10 teachers, 1 substitute teacher, 1 craft worker and 1 music helper, provide Christian education for 20 children between 3 classes; Godly Play, Kids Sunday School and BLAST
Godly Play: from 3-7 years. Children discover the Bible through an imaginative and creative approach. The curriculum includes the children being told a story supported by the use of characters and props. After the story they are asked a few ‘Wondering Questions’. The children then share a snack together and partake in a craft.
Kids Sunday School: from 8-12 years. Children learn more about the Bible and the world around them using a curriculum which involves Bible verse memory work, related scripture reading, discussion questions and life application. The lesson is followed by a fun activity, craft or game together.
BLAST: Believe Learn And Seek Truth – from 13yrs and older. This group is for teenagers to come together to learn a little deeper about the Bible. The lesson will involve some scripture reading being followed with a relevent discussion. The focus being – where does it fit into their lives today?
Our Goal: is to provide Christian Education to children with a lesson relative to their age group. With the Minister’s support and teachers working together, all our Sunday School children follow a curriculum based on the same lesson, although given in different ways according to their class.
Lent home-based Bible Study, Summer Sermons topics and occasional discussion groups, as well as a new weekly Prayer Group meeting that started in September.
