During our 9.15 service and 11.00 service, 3–11 year olds go across the road to the Church Hall for The Rock, our children’s ministry. The Bible is taught creatively in a fun and friendly way, with video clips, drama, singing, games and activities.
So how does it work?
At The Rock @9:15 your child will be placed in an age appropriate small group, and this will be the context for all that we do on a Sunday morning. We spend the first 20 minutes all together hearing our story / message in a fun and engaging, and sometimes hilarious way! We sing, we dance, we play, and then we go to our different rooms for our small group activities. These might include games, crafts, quizzes and prayer activities, all of which are linked to our theme for the week. Parent then collect their children at 10.30am, after a cup of coffee in the church hall.
At The Rock @11am, we are a much smaller group so we spend all of our time as a group together. We begin by playing a game together to get ourselves moving around, then we hear the story for that week, followed by games, crafts and activities all linked our theme for the week. The children are then taken back to their parents and carers in church.
