Sunday Club

Every Sunday at 10:30 AM
Christ Church is a church for the whole family and we welcome all ages into the service.
We feel it is important for children to learn about God’s love, and the best way for them to do this is through stories and fun activities tailored to their age. So, we have three groups for children (Seekers, Terekkers and Exel). These are entirely voluntary, and you may choose to keep your child with you in the service if they would prefer. Alternatively, you are also welcome to join them in the clubs until they feel settled.
We welcome older children to help out in the services in the same way we encourage adults. With this in mind, the Excel group does not meet on the fourth Sunday of the month.

Outline of monthly sessions
In keeping with our service pattern, the Sunday Clubs meet at different points each week:
During Sunday Praise services, the children meet in the hall before the service for a brief joint activity, before splitting off into their usual groups for the entire service.
During Holy Communion and Healing services, the children begin the service in the church before heading out to the appropriate groups. They then return later in the service to join in the act of Communion.
During All Age Worship, the service is designed to appeal to all ages, and as such the children remain within the church for the entire service.

Activity Boxes
We have a selection of activity boxes at the back of church to keep children busy whilst in the service. These vary from box to box, but typically contain colouring books, paper, activity books and pencils. Please feel free to pick up a box before the service (ask a sidesperson to point them out), and do return it to the back at the end (but feel free to take home your finished pictures). If you choose to become a regular at the church, you can write your name onto your box to ensure you get the same one each week. There is also a selection of books for younger children at the back, again, ask a sidesperson to point them out if you are unsure where to go.

Under 3s
The very young can be the hardest to keep occupied, but please be assured that the church will not mind a bit of noise from them. If they become too restless, we do have a crèche area in the lounge with a selection of toys where they can make plenty of noise! The toys will be set out throughout the service, and there will be CRB-checked helpers to look after your children during Sunday Club meeting times. You are welcome to leave your children with them, or you can of course stay within the crèche and listen to the service streamed direct to the lounge.
