We provide safe, well-equipped and caring environments in which to help your children grow, and discover something of God’s love for them. On Sundays, Children’s Church meet at 10.30am during our services at Moseley/Kings Heath and Bournville gatherings and at 11am at our Word of Hands gatherings. (See the Gatherings section of our website for full details). Children leave the main service after about 15 minutes to follow an exciting programme of activities in their groups. Our children’s groups are led by fully trained children’s workers who are DBS cleared in accordance with our Safeguarding Policy.
In addition, there is a children’s small group for school year 6, which meets on Wednesday evening. The aim of this group is to help children understand more about their faith, and give them a good foundation in their relationship with God before they move into the challenging environment of secondary school.
During the week, we also run a Stay-and-Play group on a Wednesday in Moseley. See below for more information.
