At Church, we LOVE families and love spending time with your children to help them grow in the way of Jesus.
We want the kids to feel excited about coming to church and hungry to learn more about God, growing deeper in personal connection with God and hungry to take the next steps on their journey with God.
Every child is seen as a unique gift from God and we love encouraging them to step into who God is calling them to be by giving them opportunities to press into their own gifts.
Across our 3 locations we have a variety of children's provision on Sundays.
We have Kids Church at St John's at the 9am traditional service and 11am informal service for children aged 3-11 (pre-school to year 6). It’s a place we can worship, play games, read the Bible, pray, laugh and have fun together. We have loads of fun and discover more about growing a relationship with Jesus.
At St Peter's, we run Junior Church during the 10am traditional service. This is a time where we can learn more about God together, press into the Bible and have lots of fun.
At St Richard's, we have some super exciting plans for kids and can't wait to share them with you soon.
Tots @ The Bridge
On a Friday morning 9.30-10.45 we have our TOTS group. This is a fun and safe space for 0-5’s to play, engage in craft activities, sing and generally have a great time, it’s also a great space for their adults to take a breather, and connect with other local parents and carers over refreshments. It’s free to come and we meet in ‘The Bridge’ (St John’s hall). To find out more please contact email@example.com
Parenting For Faith
This is a course for those raising their children to know and love Jesus. It’s a fantastic resource that gets really practical about how we actively disciple our children and our role as parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, or anyone who cares for children.
The goal of the course is to help parents discover that they are perfectly positioned to show their children the reality of a life with God and to empower them to have their own vibrant two way relationship with him.
Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Ministry
We want all children who attend Church to feel welcomed, loved and supported. If your children require any specialist support, we would love talk to you about how we can support you so that you and your child can get the most out of church, so do get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Tots @ ST RICHARD's
Tots @ St Richards is a stay and play group for children aged 0-5 and their grownups. Whether you are on your way to school pick up and need something to fill some time or you are looking for an afternoon group for your little one, we would love to see you there. We have refreshments for both grownups and little ones, lots of toys and a chance for a good chat. We meet on Thursdays 2pm-3:30pm at Church at St Richard’s, 1 Crossways, Crawley, RH10 1QF.
