Children go out to creche and Explorers part way through the morning service.
Our crèche is held at the same time as the Sunday morning service, with a variety of activities for the young children.
Our Explorer groups are for children aged 4 – 14 years. They use activities, quizzes, Bible stories etc as part of a Bible teaching programme.
We believe church is something that children and young people should look forward to and feel safe in. They are part of our church. Their learning should be Bible based, be enjoyable and should prepare them for life. They have much to give as well as to receive. We will listen to them. As we nurture them in the teaching of Christ, we will respect their wishes and feelings.
As members of this church we commit ourselves to the nurturing, protection and safekeeping of all, especially children and young people.
It is the responsibility of each one of us to prevent the physical, sexual and emotional abuse of children and young people, and to report any abuse discovered or suspected.
We are committed to supporting, resourcing and training those who work with children and to providing supervision.
Our group leaders have many years of teaching experience and all people involved in our children’s programme are subject to an appropriate Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
The person responsible for the implementation of our Safeguarding Policy is Kim Knowles.
