The Ark

The Ark is our Sunday morning group for children in school years 1-6. We believe that children have an active part to play in the body of Christ, that they can have a living relationship with God and that they can know the power of the Holy Spirit in their lives. Our times together include worship, when we encourage the children to enter into God’s presence and listen to Him; Bible teaching in various creative forms; activities to help the children apply what is taught to their daily lives, and opportunities to pray for one another. We have lots of fun together. The children have regular opportunities to share their gifts with the whole church. We want to empower them to make a difference in the world and to extend God’s kingdom.

Times: Sundays at 10am. We meet together with everyone in church and then walk together to the village hall after about 15 minutes.  Every Sunday except the third Sunday in the month which is our short, child-friendly,  ‘Together’ service where adults and children worship together for the whole service.
