Children's Ministry - JAM and Creche
Our weekday Baby and Toddler Group meets most Thursdays during term from 1015am to 1145am in the Lower Hall (come through the Cafe and down the long corridor and we're at the end). More details can be found here. You are very welcome to come along and have fun!
Our Sunday morning programme for children aged 3 years to 11 years old is called JAM - Jesus and Me - and is all about having fun, making friends, finding out more about the Bible, and the children getting to know Jesus for themselves.
Our aim is to make sure every child can be themselves in a safe and welcoming environment. Our childrens' workers are appointed through interview only, are DBS checked and have safeguarding training. There is always a trained First Aider on site.
On a normal week, the children join everyone else in the service for about the first 15 minutes. Then, after a prayer for them and the leaders, we all troop upstairs to the big hall for some big group time (a song or a game and a prayer) before splitting into smaller, age-related groups. We are currently using the Scripture Union Lightlive series, working our way through their 4 year curriculum of the whole Bible.

For children aged 3 and under, we have a Creche (Sunday morning supervised play time) which runs in the the Lower Hall (through the café and down the long corridor). We have at least 2 helpers at all times and they are all DBS checked. Parents can stay and play with their children or can leave them and return to the service; a helper will come and collect you if your child does not settle or needs you for some other reason. The children go up to JAM in the September after they turn 3.
Once the children make the transition to secondary school, they move up into our Youth Group.
