Come and join our Children's Groups (ages 0-11's) @ St Paul's on a Sunday Morning
"Let the little children come to me. Don’t stop them, because God’s kingdom belongs to people who are like these little children"
Junior Church meets during the 10.15 am morning service on 1st, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of the month.
After spending the first 15 minutes worshipping as a church family, the children leave the main church for their own program. The children are grouped according to age, and we aim to have fun activities whilst giving relevant Bible teaching for each Group.
On the 2nd Sunday in each month there is a Family All Age Service, where the children take an active part.
Ages 0-5 years
Children aged up to 5, including reception year meet in the Victor Child’s Room. Parents and carers are welcome to stay to settle their children if they need to before heading back into the church service. This group enjoys some free play time (just like a toddler group) singing along to action-packed worship songs, a bible story and often a craft or activity related to the teaching.
School Year 1-3
School Years 4-6
Children in Year 1-6 meet in the Church Hall. They start off altogether for catch-up time, games, story and worship. Then they split into separate groups, Splash (Years 1-3) and X-Stream (Years 4-6) where they can go into the teaching in more depth and enjoy crafts, more games and prayer activities related to it.
Once a month on 4th Sunday, rather than splitting into age groups, children have the choice to go into different activity streams including craft stream, prayer stream and active stream. Each stream will allow the children to engage with and relate to the teaching in different creative ways.
All the Junior Church children come back into the church at between 11.45 am - 12.00pm, even if the service has not quite finished.
For babes in arms who may be restless or need a feed, please feel free to take them into in the coffee lounge at the back of the church where the service is relayed through a speaker or join the under 5’s group where you will be made welcome.
