Young Church

Sunday Groups

On Sundays, during the second part of our morning services, we run children’s groups for different ages while the adults stay in the main hall for the sermon. They take place in the Community Room, just on the other side of the foyer from the main hall. There is a creche for very young children with toys to play with and a story time for those who are able to take part. There are toys for the younger children, and a Bible story with activities (often based on the same theme as the adult’s sermon series) for the older children.

 

Messy Church

Messy Church is an event for all ages. It took place on the third Sunday of every month (during term time), from 4.00 – 5.45pm at Hardwick Primary School. Each month we had a range of crafts and activities for you to take part in, based on a specific bible story. Please take a look at the photos below to see the kind of thing we did. Halfway through the afternoon, one of our leaders told the story and lead us in a song. After finishing the crafts we enjoyed a meal together. This was a free event – meal included.

Please note that we are currently taking a break from Messy Church.

Special Events

Throughout the year we run a number of different special events with activities specifically aimed at children. We’ll make sure our website is updated with the relevant information as and when appropriate. Special events have previously included the opportunity to help us build a life-size nativity scene for the whole village to enjoy, carols around the nativity on Christmas Eve and an Easter Jigsaw Hunt.
