Our church family is made up of people from many different backgrounds, nationalities and cultures. And it’s made up of people of many different ages! At Christ Church, we believe it’s essential to teach our children and young people that they can know God personally! We believe that it is the job of the whole church to be doing this: to tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord (Psalm 78).
At Christ Church we especially want to partner with parents, to help them to be confident to speak of Jesus in everyday life: when they sit at home and when they walk along the road, when they lie down and when they get up (Deuteronomy 6).
One way we do this is on Sunday mornings, in our Kids Planet groups.
Kids Planet are safe and fun groups where this can happen.
We run Kids Planet during our 10:30am service - the children leave part way through the service to go to Christ Church House, where they join their Kids Planet Group until the end of the service.
We take safeguarding seriously
We want our really tiny ones to know our really big God! Led by a caring team of volunteers, we spend our time playing, singing songs, eating a snack and listening to a Bible story. Parents are welcome to stay with their child in Stars for as long as they like.
In Cosmic we play some silly games and have fun together as we get to know God better. With crafts, songs, games and discussions each week, Cosmic is a place to ask questions about God, to listen to Him as he speaks to us in the Bible, and to learn how to talk to him in prayer.
Play House (0-4s)
For parents/carers and their children,
we meet at 1:30-3pm on Mondays (term time) at Christ Church House. We spend time playing, before enjoying snacks, bible stories and singing at the end. We offer friendship and fun for both adults and children! We'd love to get to know you and your children better! A small fee of £3 per family is charged on the door.
We enjoy playing games, making crafts, singing songs and making friends with each other. We learn about Jesus by listening to him in the Bible, and then talking about what it means to be friends with him in everyday life. And don't miss our legendary end-of-term parties! Once children are settled in Rockets, we encourage parents to re-join the service.
Our Children's groups are temporarily on hold while we can't meet together but the work continues via our Media and Resources pages
