St John's for kids -
Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
(Matthew 19:14 - Holy Bible, New International Version)
We have provision for all children aged 0-11 years old during our Sunday morning worship services at St John's.
For children aged 0-2 years we have a well-equipped area with soft toys, a play mat, a baby gym, books and other activities. There is seating for parents in this area, which is part of the main worship space, so you can keep an eye on your little ones and still participate in the morning service!
For children aged 3 up to school year 6, we have Rock Solid. Rock Solid is led by Lauren Platt, our Children & Families Pastor. Lauren is a qualified primary teacher and experienced children's worker. She is supported by a team of leaders who receive ongoing training and supervision, and are all have enhanced DBS clearance, so you can be assured of the safety of your kids at all times.
Rock Solid start in the main service so that we can praise Jesus together as the whole family of God. We then let them go and enjoy their own space for teaching. Towards the end of the service they come back to share with us what they've been doing.
Investing in children and families is something we take very seriously at St John's, and we're always looking for ways to make church as stress-less and engaging as possible for families with children. We're looking forward to meeting you soon!
