Children

There is a great group of children and young people at the Sunday morning services.  The church aims to provide engaging and enjoyable activities that will enable them to make good friends and develop faith in their own ways, while we learn with them and from them in our worship together.

Scramblers, Climbers and Explorers

Scramblers (Nursery and Reception), Climbers (years 1 and 2), and Explorers (years 3 to 6), all meet on a Sunday morning. Everyone meets in church, joining together in worship before going to  groups in the church hall, usually after about 20 minutes.

Crèche

For babies and pre-school toddlers we have an attended crèche in the lower hall for the duration of the 10.30am service. There is space to relax with your child or you can return to the service.

Raise the Praise

Raise the Praise is a half-hour service for families with children aged up to 8, held on the second Sunday of each month at 5pm. The service is focussed on the children, with lively interactive teaching, singing and prayer followed by craft and tea together.

SHINE Youth Group!

SHINE is a youth group for children in years 4 to 6. There are games, craft activities and a God slot. We meet at the same time as Raise the Praise on every second Sunday from 5-6pm in the Goodliffe Hall, which is just next to the church. We then join the younger children for squash, tea and biscuits together.

Mission Rescue Holiday Club

After the success of last year, we will be running another summer holiday club for children of primary school age on the mornings of Monday 23–Wednesday 25 July 2018, from 9:30-12:30pm. We will look at a different Bible story each day in a fun and creative way, and there will be a fab team to lead the events. There will also be an opportunity for crafts, games, sports, bouncy castle, light refreshments and music!

Please email ministry@gipsyhill.org.uk to find out more or arrange to collect a booking form. There is a £10 cost per child.
