During our 10.30am Sunday Services we have a group for children aged 3-11 years:
(For children in Year 6 and above please see our ‘Youth Work’ section)
Following the same passage from the main church service, the children explore the Christian faith for themselves. We read and listen to the Bible, play games, make crafts and have loads of fun! Please see our section entitled ‘Crèche’ for details about the group for 0-3 year olds.
On the first Sunday of the month, the groups do not run
as the children are part of the All-Age Service in the main church building.
On other Sundays, the children start the service with the rest of the church family in the main church building at 10.30am. When the leader indicates, parents take the children to the school for their groups (parents return to church once the children are registered). The children are collected from the school by parents at the end of the church service.
Groups do not run during the school holidays (including half term).
All our children’s leaders and helpers have current enhanced level DBS checks in place. Please see our ‘Safeguarding’ section for more information on our Safeguarding policies and personnel.
Buckland Monachorum Church Crèche
This group runs during the 10.30 am service in the South Porch room at the back of the Church (on the right hand side as you enter the Church). In the crèche, babies and toddlers can worship through play, read stories, sing songs, and sometimes make crafts appropriate to their age. Parents / carers are welcome to stay or return to Church as they wish. A live audio link from the service and our newly-fitted glass doors mean that the South Porch is a comfortable and safe place for the church’s youngest members and their parents to play, feed, nap and worship as needed! We look forward to welcoming you!
Youth meet during the 10:30am service (not during an All Age Service) in the chapel. We open the Bible together, pray together, drink hot chocolate together, play games together and encourage one another as we seek to be disciples and make disciples of Jesus.
If you are in school years 7-13 we would love you to join us for any of our meet-ups! Whether or not you regularly come to church or would say you 'believe in God', all are welcome to join us and see what goes on!
In the New Year (2022) we hope to begin meeting together outside of a Sunday morning to encourage one another to be thinking and praying about how being a Christian impacts our day-to-day life. We'll open the Bible, have time to chat, play some games and eat food!
To hear about socials that run during the term, send an email to Tom (address below) and he can keep you up-to-speed with what's happening!
For any more info, please contact our Youth and Children's worker, Tom.
The Next Dangerous Club & Cafe is on the 1st December!
On the first day of Advent what other theme could there be!?
Come along for some gingerbread biscuit-ball, other Christmas craziness and hear about the birth of an ordinary but extraordinary baby!
Dangerous Club is a monthly after school club for children in KS2 (Years 3-6). While the children are over in the church building hearing a short talk from the Bible and having lots of (safe!) fun, there will be a cafe and craft in the chapel for parents and younger siblings.
If you're planning to come along, email Tom on: email@example.com
letting him know the year your children are in.
