Children's work

Children's Groups on Sundays


Creche is led by experienced leaders and provides a safe and gentle environment.  There are toys and activities.  For more information on this group please contact the church office.


Junior Church (primary children)

Junior Church is an action-packed, creative, hands-on place of teaching and prayer for primary school aged children.
Once a month we have a "Sunday School Special" where the children stay in the groups for the whole service, enjoying an extended session with extra worship, fun and food!  Please check the home page for details on each week.
