Hello to Christchurch Children and Families

Here at Christchurch, we believe that children and their families matter to God and that is why we would love to get to know you all, either on a Sunday morning or at one of our mid-week groups or events that we hold during the week. Our children activities are for kids aged 0-11 year olds and we can’t wait to meet you!

We would love the chance to get to know you better, and for you to ask any questions about our children’s ministry here at Christchurch, so please do get in touch with Claire, our Children and Families Ministry Leader.

We know that children (and their families) matter to God and our dream is to see children transformed by God’s love. All of our children groups and events offer a warm, welcoming and safe place for everyone to belong. Everything we offer for children and families is based on our 4 core values FunFriendshipFamily TogetherFaith Building.

We are about children (and adults) having fun through play and engaging activities so that children love coming to our groups and events. As we believe when children are happy and having fun, this means we are in a place to build upon our other core values.

We want our children to build strong friendships with others and the church community. We know that friendships are really important because they help provide a sense of belonging within our groups. Our friendships gives us people to do life with and means we can share our joys and excitements. Through our friendships, we also have the chance to ask questions and share the challenges we might be facing too.

We are about everyone belonging and feeling welcome in our church family. We provide a safe, caring, and inclusive environment for all.

We seek to come alongside families in supporting them in building the faith of their child/children everyday. We do this through being Jesus centred in all we do and focusing on;

  • Partnering and encouraging parents and carers in their families’ everyday lives.
  • Exploring God’s word with children and sharing God’s truths.
  • Praying for children and encouraging them to chat with God in ways that they feel comfortable.
  • Engaging and involving children in times of worship so they can express their love for God.
  • Allowing children to explore the gifts God has given them to serve their friends, family and church.


Keeping children safe is of the upmost importance to us and as result, all our children’s activities are covered by our Safeguarding Children Policy which includes safe recruitment and training of team members.
