Children at church on Sundays
On Sundays, our children start together for a time of worship as a family. After a short while, children then leave to go to their different groups. The children’s team will register the children and help to get the children into their groups.
Parents and carers with young children are very welcome to join in our main service. However, if you require your own space you are welcome to use our DIY creche which is available for children under 2. There are plenty of toys and a selection of books for children. At both our sites, the creche allows you to look out into the main worship area through a glass panel and the service can be heard.
Each Sunday, our welcome team are on hand to direct families who would like to use the creche during the service.

Themes for our Children’s groups
This half term, our Red, Yellow and Orange group will be thinking about the stories that Jesus told (parables). Whilst in the Green and Blue group, the children will be continuing a series focusing on Living with Jesus. Each Sunday, we add some pondering questions linked to our theme for each week. These can be found on our Facebook page, Facebook page – Children at Christchurch WGC.
