There is a well equipped kids play area / crèche room within the main church building. The room is available every Sunday during the 10:15am service. A responsible adult such as a parent, guardian or someone directly known to the child should be in the room with the children to ensure that they are adequately supervised for their safety and that of others. The room should be left in a tidy condition following its use to enable others to come into a tidy space as well.
At All Saints church children are an important part of our church family and they are welcomed each Sunday. Kids for Christ (KFC) is a group specifically set-up to provide kids Aged 2-12 with a focused time, as part of the service, in which they can learn together more about Jesus in a safe and fun way.
Kids for Christ happens every Sunday as part of the 10:15am service, except for on the 1st Sunday of the month in which the All Age Service is designed to be suitable for all ages. (KFC will also take a break during August for the summer holidays)
After sharing in the first few moments of the main service, the children leave for Kids for Christ, They re-join their parents/carers at the end of the morning service, or in time to go to up for a blessing if it is a Holy Communion service.
Due to recent growth in the KFC group, I am delighted to announce that from Sunday 16th April 2023 the KFC group will split into two separate groups based on age.
This will allow materials to be used more appropriate to the age of children in each group and give more space.
In KFC our team of leaders help the children discover the Christian faith and how to follow Jesus’s teaching in a safe, fun and friendly environment. We use a core Christian teaching program called “Roots” which provides games, music, readings, art and craft focused on biblical teachings running week by week with a general theme. We understand that families cannot make church each week, so to supplement the main, in church programme, digital materials are provided each week on the KFC page of the Church website which can be used at home at any time to suit.
We are committed to make our Church a place that children feel safe, valued and excited to come to week after week. All leaders on the team are DBS checked and trained in the Church of England Safeguarding programme.
Please pray for our children and the fabulous KFC leadership team who are helping our children grow in faith and our Church grow younger.
If you have any questions please contact me directly.
