Children & Young People
We are committed to the nurture and protection of children and young people, helping them grow in their knowledge and experience of the Christian Faith. We have adopted the Baptist Union’s guidelines and procedures set out in its booklet ‘Safe to Grow’. This is a link to our Safeguarding Statement. All teachers have had DBS checks.
We provide young people’s groups and have an area in the service where baby and toddler toys and books are available.
Currently we have a Sunday School for primary age children and a youth group for over 11s. This year the teenagers have one or two sessions a month doing the Freedom in Christ course for Young People. The younger children follow the Scripture Union Light curriculum and our aim is for fun, learning and experimenting in prayer.
The teenagers have been going to the Newday camp in Norfolk for three years, with plans to visit either Newday or Soul Survivor in 2018. Summer camps encourage and challenge their faith and give them fun with thousands of other young people.
We run an annual Holiday Club in the Easter holidays for primary age children, with past themes being ‘Lego Madness’ and ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’. Watch this space for the 2018 theme!
