Children and Youth

We have a whole range of activities and groups on Sunday's and during the week for all ages from 0-18.

Every first Sunday of the month at church is an all-age service, where we gather together as a church family to worship God as one.

Here are all the details you'll need for each age groups. If you have any questions do contact us.

 


Under 5's - Pre School

ON SUNDAY'S

On Sunday's we have our Sunday Tots and Creche upstairs at the church. Ideal for babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers. Parents can either stay with their children or leave them with our great team of volunteers.

DURING THE WEEK

Open Door

Wednesday: 9am - 12noon (term times) 
SJ's, 56 Croydon Rd, Coney Hall.

A casual drop in for Mum's, Dad's, childminders and kids who don't go to school yet at SJ's.  Toys for the kids, coffee for the parents!


Ages 5-11 ( Year 1 to Year 6)

ON SUNDAY'S

Sunday Club

Sunday Club aims to help our young people grow in their identity as children of God, encouraging them to discover what it means to take up Jesus’ offer of living life to the full. It includes worship, exploration of the bible, fun games and activities, prayer and play.

What goes on?

Early in the service the children move from the church to the nearby school that is used for Sunday Club. They spend time together as a large group and then part way through the morning, they divide down into smaller groups to focus on a theme for the week. Amidst all the action, there is usually some downtime with drinks and biscuits.

If you’re a newcomer, you are welcome to stay around in Sunday Club until your child feels at home in their group.

DURING THE WEEK

Cru 2 (Year 3 to Year 6)

Tuesday's:  6:15 – 7:30pm (term-time)
Assembly Rooms, Gates Green Road, Coney Hall.
The group is affiliated to the national Urban Saints organisation.

What goes on?

Cru2 offers this age group a chance to get together and partake in a host of activities from the creative to the silly. There are one-offs, such as a pet evening, trips out, as well as the more regular games and crafts.

In the thick of the activity, we provide space for the young people to explore what the bible has to say about the issues in their lives, with opportunity for them to encourage one another and pray.


Ages 11-14  (Years 7 To 9)

ON SUNDAY'S

EXPLORE TOGETHER

Explore Together is a relaxed bible study time for our young people 11-14 years old.

WHAT GOES ON?

During the service the group moves to the bell tower for their study time and then rejoin the service towards the end. The group meets every Sunday apart from the 1st Sunday of the month, during school term time. 

DURING THE WEEK

CLUB 2000 (Year 7 AND Year 8) 

Tuesday's:  7:30 – 9:00pm  (term time)
Coney Hill Baptist Church, Coney Hill Road.

WHAT GOES ON?

Club 2000 is geared up for anyone in the local area in this age group. There is a mixed programme – we relax and listen to music in the lounge, as well as run more energetic activities in the form of team games. Part of the evening is dedicated to some time all together. One of the leaders helps steer discussion and activities around an issue important to young people, and we reflect on what the Bible has to say about it.

At least once a term, we head out for an agreed upon activity – some past highlights including tobogganing and Ten-Pin bowling.
