Crèche is available from 11.45am on Sunday mornings until the end of the service for children aged 0-3 years old. It is based on the ground floor of the church hall in 2 adjoining rooms that have been recently refurbished. There are 3 leaders on crèche each week to look after the children and to show them the love of Jesus. The larger room is set up with a large matted play area with a selection of toys that are suitable for 0-3 year olds and encourage interactive play. These toys are rotated so that there is a variety of toys each week. There is also a story corner with comfy adult and toddler beanbags and a selection of biblical children’s books. Parents are asked to sign their children in on the whiteboard when they arrive and ensure that their child’s bag is labelled (labels are available from the leaders). Around 12.30pm the children will receive a snack (eg. fruit, breadsticks, cheese, rice cakes, water) so parents are asked to inform a leader if their child has any allergies. The children and leaders will also spend time singing some bible songs and praying together. The smaller room has some seating and a TV which is used to play DVDs and music. There is a prayer time every Sunday morning at 11.30am in the smaller creche room to pray for the leaders, children and their families – all are welcome to come along.
Bubbles is kid’s church for children in preschool, P1 and P2. They leave church after the offering and go to the Bubbles room which is on the first floor of the church hall. They receive a snack (eg. fruit, breadsticks, rice crackers, biscuits, water/juice) so parents are asked to inform a leader if their child has any allergies. There are 2 Bubbles leaders on each week who will teach a bible story and do a range of activities to help the children to understand it and remember it. This may include singing, craft, games, role-play and visual aids. They will also pray with the children and encourage them to pray themselves. At the end of the service parents are asked to collect the children from the Bubbles room. There is a prayer time every Sunday morning at 11.30am in the smaller creche room to pray for the leaders, children and their families – all are welcome to come along.
