Junior Church follows the same structure each week, so children know what to expect. We welcome everyone and introduce the theme. We then listen to a song and have our Bible story and questioning (the age groups split for this activity). Following this we get creative, either through art or drama. Finally, we pray and sing again. The emphasis is on having fun whilst discovering truth through questioning and enquiry.
At the end of the session the children join their families for communion and to show the congregation what they have been up to in Junior Church that day.
Children under the age of 2 are also welcome in Junior Church, accompanied by a parent or guardian. There is an area set up for really little ones who need a change of scene during the service.
