Welcome to Kids and Families at St A’s! We love having fun with God’s amazing kids through play and craft and through prayer, worship and discipleship; after all, there is no junior Holy Spirit!  Our heart is for children and grown ups to encounter a God who loves them and to enable families to flourish in their faith. We have an amazing team who create fun and vibrant spaces where children can form strong bonds with friends, the team and feel loved, accepted and believed in.

During lockdown, we have lots of online resources to keep us together at home – do check out our St A’s Kids and Families Spotify playlist, our YouTube Playlist and interactive Facebook Page

Sunday Mornings

Our All Age services are held @11am for 45mins on the first Sunday of the month and weekly throughout the summer.  We have a great time together celebrating God; worshipping with our amazing All Age band; making things; learning together; praying in lots of interactive ways and celebrating birthdays.

Every other Sunday, our kids (0-11) can be found having a great time in their groups.  After a time of worship together with their families in the main building, kids head out to the Community Centre next door to join their friends for a fun session going deeper in their knowledge and experience of Jesus.

MidWeek Fun

KidZone can’t run at the mo but we can KidZoom! Our KidZoom sessions are 30-40 mins of fun, games, worship and friendship! It’s so important that our children stay connected and KidZoom is such a great way to stay together at home.  If your child would like to join us please sign up here to get the access code and password and follow the KidZoom top tips.  Click here to email Carrie for more details.

KidZone is our super fun, term-time, midweek Kid’s group! It’s open to ALL local children in school years 1-6 and held at St Andrew’s Primary School. We have a great time worshipping God, playing games, doing crafts, making friends, hearing Bible stories, & sometimes hold some special events!

When we can meet again, come and join us on Wednesdays, 6.15pm–7.30pm. £1 per child – click here to email Carrie for more details.

Schools Work

Carrie has enormous fun each week, hanging out with the fabulous kids at Willowbank Primary and St Andrew’s Primary.  Assemblies are always fun, with interactive storytelling, and always end with a prayer and a song.  While kids are studying from home, Carrie and the team have had lots of fun producing online assemblies which can be found in our Children and Families’ Playlist.

Angele

One of our very special KidZoners is Angele; we sponsor her through Compassion UK. Through KidZone we regularly pray for and exchange letters with Angele.  We get very excited when she sends us a new letter!

Angele is 9 years old, she lives in Burkina Faso with her mum, dad and 4 siblings. Her favourite subjects are Literature and Maths and she enjoys playing group games.  Her closest city is Bobo-Dioulasso.

Last year, Angele moved home and compassion project; so we are particularly praying that she will make friends, know that God is with her and settle into her new project.  We are also praying that her and her family will be kept safe from Covid 19.
