Our Youth

We have different activities covering all age groups from babies to teens.  All our leaders and helpers hold a PVG (Protecting Vulnerable Groups) certificate, and we ensure the safely and wellbeing of the children and young people at all times.


Our crèche is available for babies and toddlers year-round at each morning worship service. We have PVG'd crèche leaders each week so that parents who would like to rejoin the service after dropping their young ones off are able to do so, or if you prefer to stay in crèche with your child (or your child prefers you to) that is also absolutely fine!  In addition to free play, we sometimes read stories and sing songs during our crèche sessions.  Baby changing facilities are available in the accessible toilets in both the main church building and large hall.

Little JAMs

Little JAMs is an opportunity for 3-5 year-olds to explore the Bible in a playful, interactive way.  We always have great fun using stories, songs, videos, games and crafts as a medium for children to learn. In term time we meet each week in the large hall, during the service. As a teaching team, we feel blessed to have this opportunity to nurture and share God's Word with our lovely youngsters.

Junior JAMs

Junior JAMs meets during the morning services during term time. All children in Primary 1-3 are welcome to join us upstairs to explore the Bible through stories, games, videos, crafts and much more.

Senior JAMs

In Senior JAMs we study the Bible in a way which is pitched for late primary age children. The lessons are a mix of Bible readings, fun games, illustrations and some discussion and questions (to and from the children!).   The atmosphere is relaxed and open, to encourage everyone to learn more about the Lord Jesus through God's Word and to equip our children to come to faith and follow Christ.  

For S1 - S6 Teenagers we have:

First Friday, a group for S1-S6s run between 6:30-9pm on the First Friday of every month in the church building.  We get together to have some food, chill out, play some games and study the bible together.  If you're in the S1-S6 range and want to meet others your age, ask questions about the Bible, or just want a place to chill on a Friday night, First Friday is the place to be !

Third Saturday when we meet on the third Saturday of each month to enjoy a variety of games, movies, food and fun.
