During the Sunday morning 10:30am service we offer the following groups:

  • Kindle – Under 2’s
  • Spark –  Age 3
  • Glow – Nursery/Reception
  • Blaze – Years 1/2
  • Flame – Years 3/4
  • Ignite – Years 5/6
  • Fuel – Years 7/9

Children are in church for the start of the service and then go out to their respective groups. On one Sunday each month our morning service is an ‘All Age’ service when the whole church family worships together.

Kindle (Crèche)

Kindle is available every Sunday morning in the Crèche room opposite the kitchen. The Crèche is staffed by church members for the whole service so that parents can return to the service whilst their children are cared for.


Spark provides a more structured group for children beginning to out grow Crèche. It uses games, crafts and bible stories to teach children the basics of the Christian faith and helps them to fully benefit from and enjoy their time in church.


In Glow children learn and worship through play, talk, simple stories, crafts and drama. There is usually a settling in period where parents/carers are welcome to stay for all or part of the sessions, and we will come and fetch you if your child is at all distressed.


Blaze & Flame meet in Pointers School close to the church. Their aim is to help children enjoy meeting together and to have fun while learning more about what it is to be a Christian. In these groups the children read, act, play, create, pray, discuss and read the Bible.


Ignite is a group that aim to help explore the bible, discuss, read the bible, create, build friendship and pray


Fuel  is a group that seeks to meet the challenges and excitements that young people experience in this time of life. The programme sets out to help the young people connect with God in their world and to offer appropriate friendship and support.
