Welcome to the Greyfriars Kids Ministry page!
Children are a vital part of our church family and we would love to welcome you and your family to our kids’ groups on Sundays.
On the first Sunday of each month, all ages worship together in church at 9.30am for our ‘All In’ services. All aspects of the service are planned for a range of ages and needs, including an optional activity, and aims to run for an hour at the most.
For the remaining Sundays of each month, we have a variety of Kids’ Groups. No need to pre- book, just turn up, we would love to see you! When you bring your child to the group, we will ask you to fill out a quick Registration/Consent Form before leaving your child in our care. We offer the children a drink and biscuit, so please do let us know about any allergies.
Scramblers in the Greyfriars Nursery
Two groups for the youngest babies up to, and including Reception year at school. Follow through the back of the Atrium, through the Nursery car park into the Nursery building.
Scramblers 0-2: for children aged 0 – 2+ years. We meet on the first floor, in a large room designed for babies and toddlers, with singing, colouring, stories and play. You are welcome to stay with your child until they are settled.
Scramblers 3-5: for children aged 3 years up to, and including Reception school year. We meet in the large pre-school room downstairs in the Nursery, for singing, stories, craft, play and prayer. Again, you are welcome to stay with your child until they feel settled.
Trekkers in the Greyfriars Centre
We have three groups for children aged 6-11 years, (school years 1-6) in the Greyfriars Centre. Follow through the link corridor at the front of the Atrium, up the sweeping staircase to the rooms on the first floor. If you feel that you need to stay with your child, please talk to the room leader.
Trekkers Years 1&2: We meet in the Kennet room (first floor) for games, worship, quizzes, stories, craft activities and prayer.
Trekkers Years 3&4 and Years 5&6: We start together in the Loddon room (first floor) for tabletop games, colouring, Lego or soft football, before splitting into two smaller groups for discussion, stories, quizzes, craft activities and prayer. Y3&4 stay in Loddon, Y4&5 move upstairs to the Holybrook room (second floor).
Please do talk to the room leader, or email the Children’s Pastor (Heather Harper: firstname.lastname@example.org) if your child has any additional needs, so that we can ensure they have a positive experience with us.
We look forward to meeting you and your child!
Heather and team.
