Under 18’s Ministry

ChristCentral is a great place to bring your children

As a church we are so encouraged by the number of babies being born and children and families joining us. We prioritise family at ChristCentral and we have mid-week and Sunday groups designed to support our children’s development and provide support and community to parents. We value children and everything they have to bring to the church, and want to provide a safe and fun environment for them to grow and develop their own personal relationship with Jesus.

Far from just watching your children, our motivated Crèche team facilitate free-play, snack time, crafts and baby praise each week.

Follow the Crèche helpers in the green polo shirts when they leave during the worship, and take your children straight up to Crèche room and collect them from the same room once the service has finished. If the meeting over-runs the team will be aware and will keep your child entertained until you are ready.

For babies under one, there is a soft play area in the main hall. We also have an audio feed in the café if you need to settle your baby and don’t want to miss the sermon. There is a ‘mums only’ feeding area in the back of the library with an audio feed from the main hall.

Our Discoverers group is designed to engage each child through imaginative play, exciting bible stories, crafts and songs of praise.

Follow the Discoverers helpers, also in the green polo shirts, when they leave during the worship, and take your children straight up to Crèche room. Collect them from the same room once the service has finished. If the meeting over-runs the team will be aware and will keep your child entertained until you are ready.

Our Kidswork (Adventurers and Explorers) start the morning  for a high energy worship time. We then introduce the theme of the morning with ‘teaching time’ and some ‘worship and creative prayer’. The morning is full of fun, music games and most importantly learning more about Jesus and how we can live a live with Him at the centre.

Take your child to the kids check in point, by the cafe, where they will be taken to their room by the leaders. The children will be brought back to the same place for collection after the service.

We are so privileged to have some great guys in the youth work and we are incredibly excited to see what Jesus has in store for the young people in the church. We want to see them grow in their relationship with God, go deeper in worship and learn to love the Bible and see its relevance for their lives. We aim to take the youth out every other week during the Sunday service; please check at the child registration desk to see if we have something running this week.

If you would like to know more about our different children’s groups, or would like to serve with our Under-18’s ministry, please get in touch with the office, speak to a member of the team (Our Crèche and Discoverers Team wear green polo shirts, and the Kids Team wear Orange), or ask at the Connect Desk after a Sunday Morning.
