Kids' Church


Kids’ Church normally meets in Church Gate House at 10:00am every Sunday.

Once registered the children join their age group. 

The groups are:

 ‘Little Fishes’ for pre-school children

‘Waves’ for children 4 to 7, 

‘Anchors’ for ages 7 to 11

‘DiscipleSHIP’ for over 11s and teens. 

These groups provide fun ways to learn from the Bible, through games, crafts and interactive activities appropriate to each age group. Each week looking at who Jesus is and how to live for Him. 

After 40 minutes of teaching and activities, all four groups come together for a time to share what they have learnt. 

We also sing to God through fun action songs or have reflective time of prayer. The children then join their families in the service so all can end by worshiping together. 

Since restrictions have been slightly lifted KC is now able to meet in the garden at 10am every Sunday, except the Family Service - everyone welcome.

Contact our Children's and Young People Minister Shirley for more details via shirley@sac.church
