Children

KidsZone takes place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays as part of our Sunday Gatherings. Activities include: stories from the Bible in a fun, fast moving, creative manner; action songs; craft; DVDs; and our puppets. Most of these activities we share with the mums and dads at the end of the session. The children stay with us for the first 20 minutes of worship and then go off to their various groups. On the 1st Sunday we have our Family Service and the children are an integral part of the morning.

There are three groups for children on Sunday mornings, one for ages 4 - 7, one for ages 8 - 12 and the other for ages 13 and over. The material we use is produced especially for children of different age ranges by Scripture Union. Each group is run by a team of leaders and helpers who are DBS checked. Our Child Protection Policy can be viewed here. There is a creche for pre-school children with all sorts of toys for them to play with during the morning. This is manned by a team of helpers, all with DBS checks.

Come and try us out - you won't be disappointed!

 
Summer Holiday Club 2019 - Jungle Jamboree

At the beginning of August, the hall at the Forest End site of Church End Lower School became a jungle for intrepid explorers. On the Sunday before our Holiday Club officially began, everyone was invited to a launch event followed by a BBQ in the school playground.

During the week 50 explorers joined us for an adventure through the jungle. Through the unfolding of Bible stories they found out why staying on the right rack produces great rewards! The children, ranging in age from Reception Class to Year 4, got up to all sorts of fun activities, including:
jungle crafts to make, action songs to sing, quizzes to answer, jungle games to play, overcoming Dingo Dollar Challenges and Bushtucker Trials, being crowned a King or Queen of The Jungle and much, much more to enjoy as you experience your very own Jungle Jamboree! And if it ever got too noisy - Clive the crocodile made an appearance!

Parents / carers and their smaller children were encouraged each day to stay for a while and see what the children got up to and enjoy some refreshments. The week ended with parents / carers coming for the last part of Friday morning to get a taste of all that the children had been doing during our Jungle Jamboree.

Easter & Christmas Crafts

During the year we run two craft days for children of Lower School age (Reception - Year 4), one at Easter and the other at the beginning of December in the run up to Christmas.

We usually have around 40 children attend each of these craft days. The days start at 10.00am and run on until 1.30pm. The day consist of a number of seasonal crafts, with the children moving between them as they chose. The day also includes DVDs, activity sheets, and good old fashioned party games. The children bring their own packed lunch with them, and we provide biscuits and drinks. They are held in the school hall at the Forest End site of Church End Lower School. These days also provide the opportunity for parents to enjoy some time to put their feet up or especially at Christmas to do some shopping.

 
Child Safeguarding As a church we take child safeguarding very seriously, believing it to be part of our duty to make sure our children are kept as safe as possible. All who work with children in the church have Disclosure Certificates, which are kept updated regularly, and attend training on safeguarding practice. We also have a full Safeguarding Policy and Procedures, which follow guidelines issued by the The Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service - you can view a copy here. To find out more, please speak to our Designated Person for Safeguarding, Sherri Read or her deputy, Keith Pullin, or our minister, Steve Gaunt.‚Äč
