We love to welcome families to our church. God loves families, so we aim to make children and parents feel at home. Our children are very much part of the church family, and they are very welcome to join in for the whole meeting with their parent/carer.
However, because we know this isn't always easy, babies and toddlers (0-3s) and children (4-11s) can go out for their own age specific Bible teaching time while the adults and young people listen to the talk. We think the Bible and fun go hand in hand, and we want the children to love Sundays, so the leaders work hard on teaching the children truths from the Bible in an engaging way. Our aim is to teach children about Jesus Christ and what it means to be a Christian.
Babies and Toddlers
The little ones (0-4s) sing, pray, have a Bible story from the Beginner's Bible, pray about what they've read, do some craft and enjoy playing together.
The older children (4-11s) have their own Bible Teaching time too. They follow the sermon series, the week following the sermon. They have Bible time, games and craft that help them meet Jesus Christ.
A safe environment
We provide a safe environment for children. Andrew and Bethany Steventon are our Child Protection Officers. Our Child Protection Policy is here.
In our first two years as a Church, we put on some events specially for toddlers. You can see the fun we had here:
Fun, storytime, games, refreshments, and a taste of what Church by the Bay is all about: Jesus Christ.
