Junior Youth Church
This is for children from nursery age to Year 5 each Sunday morning from 10.45 to 11.45 am during term times (except the third Sunday of the month when the whole church family worships together). The activities include worship and learning for the youngest members of the church family. We aim to provide a varied programme including crafts, games, and activities both indoors and out.
Messy Church is an event for young children and their parents or carers, which meets on the 2nd Sunday of each month from 4.00 to 5.30 pm.
With games, stories, songs, lots of crafts (some which are messy), and lots of fun we explore bible stories and the stories of bible people.
Messy Church also includes a light meal for the children and tea or coffee for the adults. A donation of £1.00 per child is suggested to cover the cost of the meal.
Soft play is well attended and takes place each week during term time for parents or carers and preschool children. Sessions are held Thursday mornings from 9.15 to 11.30 am. There is a relaxed atmosphere, and all are welcome. Come and see your child enjoying a safe play area, make friends, and interact with other children. It is run by friendly volunteers who are always willing to help and answer any queries. (All helpers are DBS checked.) Each session costs £2.00 per family.
The Hub is for children in years 4 and 5 and is held on the first and third Saturdays each month, from 5.00 to 6.30 pm. It is a club where we play games and take part in different activities with a tuck shop and food to share.
The Gathering is for young people from year 6 upwards and is held on the first and third Saturdays each month, from 7.00 to 9.00 pm. It is a youth group with games, activities, music, discussions, tuck shop, and pizza!
The Hub and The Gathering are organised by Ruth, the Wylam and District Churches youth worker – for more information contact Ruth on 07421 018976
