Childrens' Ministry

The Childrens' Ministry takes care of children aged 3-10years. On Sundays our groups are Eaglets 3-6yrs and Eagles 6-10yrs. 

They read the bible, question & share, play & pray! All the Children’s activities are overseen by an employed Children’s worker and children’s safety and care is paramount.

There are also holiday clubs and special party days through the year.

“When Jesus saw this, he was indignant. He said to them ‘Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.’” – Mark 10:14

Kids Clubs

Our Children's work includes special events in the school holidays: 

Kids clubs are run for 5-11yr olds & include crazy games, activities, lots of singing & dancing, crafts & stories, refreshments & some dressing up! 

Previous clubs themes have been: Cowboys out West, The Incredibles, Pirates and Superheroes. 

Look out for the details of up coming clubs in the school holidays & book in for a free, fun-filled time...

Chatterbox

Jo Friday & the team meet every Friday during school term-time 10:30-12:15pm & open up the doors to parents/carers & their under 5s.

Every week Jane leads a toddler-friendly craft, and we build-up a new scene each term on our big display board using your child's artwork!

For Parents/Carers we offer a cuppa & a home made cake. While the children have a snack & drink. 

We have a large selection of toys and some outdoor space (British weather permitting) for keeping your little ones entertained throughout the time.

The morning is rounded off by encouraging children to join in the tidying & then we sit down for some singing & a story. 

We ask only for a 50p donation to cover our costs for craft materials & snacks.

Sunday School - Eaglets

Eaglets: 3-6yr olds are welcomed each Sunday morning to join us for their own group at Fort Pitt. 

At 11:45am parents can take their little ones out & leave them with our team of children's workers for a bible story, craft, songs & activities aimed at their age group, to enable them to access God's word from a young age.

Our leaders are DBS checked & have many years of experience. We encourage parents to help-out when possible - so you can see what they are learning.

 

Sunday School - Eagles

Eagles - 6-10yr olds: We meet each Sunday at Fort Pitt from 11:30-12:30 to read the bible, ask questions, learn more about faith & what Jesus is all about. 

With games, activities, challenges & memory verses we aim to get the children to look into God's Word & begin to understand how they can get to know God for themselves. 

We read from the NCV version of the bible, a really accessible version for younger readers - making it easier for them to get into the bible.

Sometimes we get them to read in the main meetings, or help out in special celebrations such as Havest, Easter and Christmas is always a great time to get involved.

The team is overseen by our Children's Worker at CEC, and leaders are DBS checked. Parents are encouraged to come & help out when available
