Helping children grow...

We believe that the children are a vital part of our church and therefore we want them to be actively involved in worship, reading the bible, prayer, ministry, serving, giving and sharing God’s heart for the poor and those that don't yet know Jesus.

Our aim is to lovingly disciple children so that they will grow in their walk with Jesus – loving Him with all their hearts and following Him every day. 


Our Kids team run groups on a Sunday morning for children up to Year 6. Please ask a member of the Welcome Team for more information.

If you are looking for a church and have children, then we would love them to join us. We'll do our utmost to ensure your child has a great time!
