Children

Children at Woodlands

As far as we're concerned, there's no age limit on discipleship. That’s why our aim with Children’s Church is not simply to entertain kids, but to help them discover for themselves what it means to follow Jesus and become like him.

At our 9.15 and 11am Services we run structured activities in groups for approximately 200 children, as well as providing crèche facilities for the very young. These groups, led by volunteers and church team, aim to give children a quality experience that is engaging, fun and meaningful.

An opportunity to experience a celebration style service, aimed exclusively for children with quality worship, upfront teaching and a chance for each child to discover God in a way that engages and involves them. Children can choose from a range of weekly activities including:

  • games, activities and crafts

  • 'deeper' teaching time

Children's Church isn't limited to just services on a Sunday.
