Here at Emmanuel, we believe that children are a part of God’s big family, and we want them to know God’s love for them and follow Jesus’ example of how to grow together. Children have as much to show us about God’s love for us as we can show them. Emmanuel offers all sorts of activities that happen throughout the week and year that children of all ages are encouraged to be a part of.

Weekly, they play an important part within The 1045 helping to lead the wider community in our gathered worship. They sing in the band, help us to explore the Bible in creative ways and help us in our prayers.

For the younger children in our community there is the weekly Toddler Time. A time when parents and carers can bring their babies and pre-school toddlers to a safe and welcoming environment to enjoy some company and play together.

There are also opportunities throughout the year to be a part of the regular holiday clubs that happen within the Parish. A time when the gather with other children from the wider community to learn more about Jesus in fun and creative ways.

If you want to know more about our children’s activities or have any questions, please do get in contact.

Toddler Time

Come and make new friends in our church lounge on Thursday mornings during term time from 10 – 11.30. Any children under school age welcome to come and join our very friendly group with their parents / grandparents / carers. We have lots of toys to play with and sometimes a craft activity. Drinks and biscuits are served and the morning ends with singing which is always very popular. We look forward to welcoming you and your little ones.

Sing to the tune of The Teddy Bears’ Picnic!
