At ChristChurch we believe that the church is made up of all ages and so our weekly groups, as well as our Sunday mornings, reflect this. We run groups for all ages, for children from all walks of life looking to share the love of Jesus. Our Children’s worker is committed to making ChristChurch an accepting and welcoming place for all ages from the youngest to the oldest.
Each Sunday we run three different children’s groups so that your child can enjoy the morning amongst children their own age and we can tailor suit activities to their needs. Our children’s groups run from 0 – Year 6.
- Creche: 0 – 2 years
The Creche meets in the downstairs office room where there are toys and age appropriate activities as well as bible stories and songs. Parents can either leave their children with our capable and dedicated team or are more than happy to stay in and join in the fun.
- Little Sparks: Pre-School Age
The Little Sparks meet in our ‘Polegate’ Room, where they have a bit more space to run around and play with the different toys that we have before also doing some crafts, bible teaching and songs.
- Generators: Reception – Year 6
The Generators group meets in our new upstairs room, the ‘Pevensey Room’. Within the group there are 3 teams each with a team leader meaning the work we do can be a lot more personal in smaller groups; but also allows for some healthy competition between the teams.
Within each of these groups, there is time for games, as well as Bible stories, activities and some worship time. The Generator group often includes drama’s, puppets and multimedia to teach.
Baby and Little Gems
Little Gems is our midweek baby and toddlers group which meets every Tuesday morning during term time. It is held at our church building from 9:45 – 11:30am. There are toys and crafts for the children to play with, nursery rhymes and story time, along with toast for the children and tea, coffee and biscuits for parents. It is a great opportunity for young children to play together and for parents to chat.
Baby Gems, as the name suggests, is a group for expectant mums and babies up to 18 months. There are soft play items and other toys for the babies to play with. Tea and coffee is available for parents and we meet each Tuesday afternoon from 1pm -2:30pm during term time.
Deeper Bible Study
We also run a bible study for Year 5-6 on a Thursday afternoon at Ropemaker. This gives space for older primary school age children to hang out, play some games and delve into the Bible deeper than they sometimes can on a Sunday. Elo, our children’s worker and her team, look to teach but also promote debate amongst the group as we believe that if children are going to have their own faith they need to understand what we believe and make that decision themselves.
