Why not take advantage of our crèche service and relax and enjoy church without being distracted? Creche is run by a team of willing and enthusiastic volunteers and is organised by myself, Kirsty Matchett. We cater for babies from about 3 months old and toddlers up to 3 years old. We are open from 10.20am giving you time to settle your child before joining the church service at 10.30am. We have a variety of toys, books, push along and ride along toys and a small climbing frame and slide for the older ones. We also have a travel cot. To give you peace of mind, we run a "Creche Alert" system whereby the parent/carer is given a numbered ticket for their child and if crèche needs them, their number will flash up in red on the screen during the church service.
When your pre-school children (3-5 years) come in our Beginners Church from 10.30am each Sunday morning, they will enjoy playing, doing craft work and listening to stories, while you relax and enjoy our Sunday morning service! If you would like further information please contact Adeline McKibben, Elaine Wallace or Hillary Milligan.
In K.I.D.S. church, your kids of primary school age (5-11 years or Children in P2 to P7). We meet each Sunday in the Minor Hall at 1045 to 1145 and the kids will get exciting stories, singing and bible teaching! K.I.D.S. Church is just great. It's lively, enthusiastic and real. Each week we have approximately 20-25 children praying and praising God without any inhibitions. Not long ago we had boys who didn't think it was ‘cool' to sing or pray aloud but, praise God, that is no longer the case. The children listen attentively to the Bible lessons and how to apply it to their lives and learn a memory verse each week. Don't be surprised to hear your children doing action songs and reciting bible versus after each Sunday! Every so often, we will also invite the kids into our Sunday morning service to sing songs for us.
K.I.D.S. begins with the kids sitting with parents in the main church service. Early in the service, they will be invited to the front of the church for our "K.I.D.S. Spot" where the minister will speak and give out small birthday presents before they go out.

They play games, do crafts, sing songs and listen to stories in a friendly and relaxed environment. Everything a Rainbow does helps her to develop and to think for herself; she will make friends, be more confident and learn to work as a team.

Each week we include a quiet time when we can share our faith with the girls and teach them about Jesus. Our main aim in Brownies continues to be for each girl to grow in their relationship with each other and with God. Through the activities they do, the Brownies will acquire:
