CHILDREN

Over a quarter of our regular congregation is under 18 years of age, meaning Grace is a great place for families to come together.

But we also want to reach out to families in the wider community and run an age-specific kids and youth program on different nights and in different locations around the town.

 


Under 12′s

They grow up so fast…

Those early years are so important, so enjoyable, so tiring, so challenging! Grace runs a number of groups and activities that are aimed at children at lower and middle schools (and their parents!).

 


creche

As part of our main Sunday morning meetings during the talk a crèche is available for children under 5.

This is run in two groups, Crèche where babies are cared for giving you parents chance to listen in, and Crèche+ with some structured teaching of the 3-5 year olds.

Crèche and Crèche+ run every Sunday morning. The church operates a Child Protection Policy to ensure the safety of all.

An exciting age, a time of rapid change, a transition that many struggle with – parents included. But there are opportunities galore – welcome to your teens!

COME AND SAY HELLO

Hi, my name’s George, and I help make Havoc! Grace is a great place for children and young people to grow up, make long lasting friendships, explore the Christian faith and find a real role in serving the local church and community. Weekly events are backed up with weekends away, youth activity camps and many other great opportunities to get stuck in! (Food nearly always included!)
