Sunday for Children

Growing in faith together

On Sundays, our children start with their families and the whole congregation for a time of worship. After a short while in the service, children then move to their groups with the children’s team. At Christchurch, we offer groups for all children aged 2 up to school year 6.

All children attending either Seedlings and Saplings and Rooted need to be signed in and registration forms need to be completed. Each week, parents and carers need to sign their child/children in with the children’s team. Children can be registered @ Parkway when the children go to their groups. @ Peartree, registration takes place between 10:20am and 10:40am in the cafe area.



Seedlings is for children aged 2 up to and including children in reception.


Seedlings is a play-based venue where children enjoy playing and making friends. During our sessions, we explore a Bible story together, play games, offer a craft activity, and spend time chatting and catching from God (talking and listening to God in times of prayer).


@ Parkway, Seedlings meet in the first children’s room which can be accessed via the double doors from the entrance hall and @ Peartree Seedlings meet in a room on the ground floor. The room can be accessed via a corridor from the cafe area.

Saplings and Rooted


Saplings and Rooted is for children in school years 1 to 6.


Each week, Saplings and Rooted start off together for a time of games, worship and the team introduce the theme for the week. The group then splits into smaller groups, usually based on ages, to explore the Bible in more depth and have time to chat and catch (prayer) with God.


@ Parkway, we meet in the second children’s room which can be accessed via the double doors from the entrance hall. @ Peartree, we meet upstairs in our kids room which can be accessed via a door at the front of the worship space.


Parents and carers with younger children are welcome to join in our main service. However, if you would prefer, 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 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

During the summer term, our Seedlings group will be following our Animal series exploring different animals from the Bible. The children will have the opportunity to play and learn about some of the animals that God has made and how he used animals to share who He is.

In Saplings and Rooted we will be following our Making a Splash series exploring different parts of the Bible which involves getting people getting wet! We will be exploring what it means to make a splash in our own faith.

After Sunday mornings

We love our time on a Sunday morning with the kids but we want to support our parents and carers during the rest of the week too as you disciple your kids. Please do get in touch with Claire if you’d like to chat, have prayer requests, or specific ways that we can help or support your family.
