Children

“The freedom and encouragement of the children helps me to relax in church.”

Living in sacred community means creating a place where all are welcome - all ages and backgrounds. When children enter the sanctuary we want them to see there is a space for them and we want them to know they are welcome. We hope parents and caregivers see this as a sign that they too are welcome.

Here's What's Happening these days:


NEW PROGRAMMING- TheLeaders have been exploring a new model of programming on Sunday mornings...

After the Children leave service, we all meet in Parkgate Hall for a time of Prayer, Singing, Offering and watching one of the Holy Moly videos. Instead of dividing into the classes the children are invited to choose a 'Station' or activity they would like to do that is based on the story we have just seen. We have a game, a craft, drama, sometimes lego or other building materials. All of the stations are in Parkgate Hall so all the leaders and children stay together. This experience has been very well received by the children and the leaders enjoy working closer together. 

We also have a Feast time towards the end of our time together - if your child will be attending Sunday mornings and has a food allergy, or diet restriction - please let myself or another leader know. Thank you. 

Our leaders choose a station to run and it is a lot of fun.

We welcome all parents to take a turn at leading a station. Perhaps you have a simple craft you'd like to share? Know a great game that's lots of fun? Do you bake, make jewelry, build amazing lego structures in your basement? 

 Contact Anne if you would like to join us for one Sunday and share your gifts with your children. 

 

OFFERING: 
We would like to remind Parents that we take offering every Sunday we meet
and invite parents to send a small amount of money each week that their children attend CC on Sundays.

Thank you. 

You are young, but don’t let anyone treat you as if you are not important.
Be an example to show the believers how they should live.
Show them by what you say,
by the way you live,
by your love, by your faith,
and by your pure life.
