Junior Church & Stepping Up Church

Junior Church & Stepping Up Church

These groups take place in the church hall during the 10 o'clock Sunday service. The young people and children will be called to the front of church before the first reading and return in time for communion. There are always three leaders and older children are welcome to come and help.

What do we do?

We use as a guide the teaching programmes set out in the “Roots” publications, which suggests activities that will reflect the Gospel reading for the day, so we are thinking and reflecting on the same issues as the main congregation. The session will usually start with a game to warm up and introduce the theme of the day, followed by reading a simplified story version of the gospel reading. We will then go on to the main activity, which could be creative art work, model making, drama, cooking, treasure hunts, gardening or problem solving games.

We are also thinking of ways we can encourage the children to become involved in the EcoChurch

Stepping Up Church will be more of a discussion session and will include paper puzzles and word games etc.

Special Services

The children and young people take part in special church services and present a nativity dramatisation at Christmas. Sometimes the children & young people will lead worship songs & readings in church

We run an annual kids activity afternoon to help promote Junior Church, which is usually in the Spring.

Youth Group

The Kung Fu Hamsters is our group for young people from the church and local area for School year 6 to 11. We're pleased to have welcomed some new families and younger siblings, but would welcome more children - there is definitely the capacity for more.

Reporting Back!

Our regulars seem to get a lot out of it, and are incredibly articulate at explaining what they have learnt to our Vicar, Richard, and the congregation after each session (this puts us leaders under pressure to ensure that they have learnt something important!).

We currently we have a healthy number of Junior Church leaders, but are always ready to welcome anyone else who is interested.
