We welcome all primary-school-aged children to the Ark. We meet in the church centre during the services on Sunday mornings. The children are split into 3 groups - Reception, Years1&2, and Juniors - each with their own dedicated leaders. In their groups, the children spend time learning from the Bible, doing various Bible-themed activities and playing games in a friendly, fun and safe environment.
Broadly, the children look at the Old Testament from June to November each year, and the New Testament from December to May (including the birth of Jesus at Christmas and the death and resurrection of Jesus at Easter). We aim to work through the Bible over a 5-year period.
All our leaders have been DBS checked.
Holiday Clubs and other events
We run Holiday Clubs for primary-school-aged children on 3 mornings during the Easter holidays each year. These are fun times with a Bible theme and lots of cream pies!
We also hold Light Parties (an alternative to Halloween on 31st October), and other social events during the year, with the aim of building friendships between the children.
