At Junior Church we aim to introduce children and young people to God and to disciple them and journey with them as they explore and develop their relationship with God.
Children go out to Junior Church about 15 minutes into our main Sunday morning service and the children’s teaching and activities run concurrently with the adult service.
At present we have around 130 children in Junior Church and we are divided into 3 main sections, P0-P3, P4-P7 and Years 8-11. Classes within these sections meet together at the beginning of each session for singing and games or drama to introduce the theme for the day. We then split into individual classes for Bible Study and activities. Our teachers and helpers teach on a month-on, month-off rota and invest a lot of time, prayer, energy and creativity in the lives of the children in our care.
The programme is varied and we use the Scripture Union ‘Light’ study material to structure our curriculum. At present we are also doing a ‘Walk through the Bible’ to give the children an overview of God’s Amazing Story and we are really getting to know what the Bible is all about and how God speaks to us through it!
