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 (0-4s) and children (5-11s) can go out for their own age specific Bible teaching time during the talk for adults. We think the Bible and fun go hand in hand, and want the children to love Sundays, and 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 (0-5s) 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 (5-11s) have their own Bible Teaching time too. Currently they are following the adults series in Genesis, looking at who God is and the world he made. They have Bible time, games and craft that helps them meet Jesus Christ.
We put on an event for Toddlers once a term...

These Toddle events are a chance for parents to bring their children for great fun, storytime, games, refreshments, and a taste of what Church by the Bay is all about: Jesus Christ.
