First Steps provides the support necessary for families bringing babies and young toddlers to Family Church. This includes providing a safe and fun environment for our youngest family members, so that their earliest experiences of church will be positive. Very young children value the security of being around someone they know, so we ask that you stay with them if necessary.
Little Stars is a safe place for our young children to grow and learn about Jesus. It is about praise and worship, prayer and teaching in ways that toddlers and preschoolers can understand. Little Stars do everything that ‘big church’ does, but with more colours, toys, games, glue, paint and bubbles! With stories, music and craft the kids engage all their senses and develop strong foundations before moving onto Rising Stars.
Our Rising Stars and All Stars groups provide an exciting, lively, fun programme with games, craft activities, worship, teaching, DVDs, object lessons and stories. We aim to encourage the children to find out more about God, to ask questions, explore and develop their faith. Everyone is welcome and we hope you’ll come along and see for yourself how exciting it is to be part of Kid’s Church at Family Church!
Shining Stars is the team who serve children attending Kids Church who need extra support. Our Shining Stars workers ensure that children with learning difficulties, special needs, or significant behavioural issues are given the support that they need to thrive in Kids Church and to develop their personal relationship with God. We provide one-to-one support where necessary and where possible, liaising with parents/carers to ensure the individual child’s needs are understood.
