We welcome all primary school-aged children to the Ark. We meet in the church centre during the services on Sunday mornings. The children are split into groups for Infants and Juniors with their own dedicated leaders, and the Juniors spend some time each week in their year groups. In their groups, the children spend time learning from the Bible, singing, doing various Bible-themed activities and playing games in a friendly, fun and safe environment.
Broadly, the children look at the Old Testament from June to November each year, and the New Testament from December to May (including the birth of Jesus at Christmas and the death and resurrection of Jesus at Easter). We aim to work through the Bible over a 5-year period. Once a year, in January, the Ark leads the church service, presenting what we have been learning in recent months to the rest of the church.
All our leaders have been DBS checked.
Holiday Clubs and other events
We run Holiday Clubs for primary school-aged children on 3 mornings during the Easter holidays each year. These are fun times with a Bible theme and lots of cream pies!
Last year, we learnt about the events leading up to Jesus' death and resurrection in "The King's Quest", and this year we were "Epic Explorers" learning more about Jesus' life.
We also hold Light Parties (an alternative to Halloween on 31st October), a Christmas Party and other social events throughout the year, with the aim of building friendships between the children.
