'I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love of Christ, and to know this love surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.'   Ephesians 3:17-19

Our vision

To work in partnership with parents to enable our kids to have a personal relationship with God.


We want our kids

To love God first: 
To know God’s love in a deeper way and to be able to respond to that love through worship and prayer.
To learn his Word: 
To learn, understand and apply God’s truths to their everyday lives - Bible is a training manual for life.
To lead others to Jesus: 
To feel confident and equipped to share their faith with others. 
God calls all Christians to share the faith with others and you don’t need to be a grown-up to do it!




Wildlife is our Children's Church
10.30 am Service

We run five age appropriate groups for children between the ages of 0 and 15.
Each group is jam-packed with fun, games, great worship, prayer, teaching, arts and crafts and much, much more. 
We gather and worship together to begin with and then children go down to their groups for the rest of the morning.


Ages 0-2 years


Led by  Richard & Chun-Hsiang Brown

For you created my inmost being, you knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.'  Psalm 139:14

Fireflies is a safe, fun-filled environment for our youngest church members. There are plenty of toys to play with, great Bible stories to hear, lively music to enjoy, and crafts to make. We pray with all the children.   


Little Lions
Ages 3 yrs and reception class


Led by Uta Buckler

'Shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life.' 
Philippians 2:15

Each Sunday morning we start our session with some free-play time, don’t be surprised to see some knights or princesses on the loose! After a quick juice and biscuit break we have upbeat worship lead by our talented leaders followed by an interactive Bible story. Each week we have an arts and crafts activity that helps the children learn and remember the lesson for the week. We end our weekly session with a time of prayer - as a group we want to take time to thank God for what he has done in our week and pray for each other. 


School yrs 1 – 5

Led by Rachel Edmonson

Each week we meet downstairs in the Howard hall for games, Bible teaching, prayer, worship, crafts and more. All with tons of fun! We pray that the kids may grow in their knowledge of and love for God and enter into a personal relationship with him; that they may bear much fruit for God’s kingdom now and in the future.


School yrs 6 – 9


Led by Ali Ingall 





Fruit Bat
School years 10 - 13

Led by Simon Lilley 

'Those who wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength. They shall rise up on wings like eagles.' Isaiah 40:31

Fruit Bat meets in the youth room. Our aim is to provide an environment where the teenagers involved can go deeper in what it means to be a Christian, be inspired by the Bible, and get a chance to ask their leaders about challenges they might have. We have regular question and answer sessions, group discussion, and prayer times. We also run socials once or twice a term.
