We aim to ensure that each and every child is valued and enabled to fully take part in the life of the church. This will be different for every child. Our children’s provision on a Sunday is currently split across two groups – Minichurch (for those 0-3) and Kid’s Church (3-11). Everyone starts the service together and then after the first song and notices children are invited to go out. If they haven’t attended before, consent forms will need to be signed by a parent or guardian.
At any point during a Sunday we have a ‘chill out space’ in the foyer. There’s a tent with bean bags, a bubble light column and a quieter atmosphere to allow those who need it time to process. Children should not be left unattended – an adult needs to be with them at all times. There are a number of items available in a basket in the foyer which may help people, including sensory cushions, fidget toys, a large print bible with a simplified translation and ear defenders.
