Children at St Nic's

Please note that from 30/07 – 03/09 we have just the one 10am service. This short, family friendly service has a creche space in the Tower Room for parents to supervise their own babies (with a sound and picture link to the service). There will also be a short activity for older children in our next door Children’s Centre during the sermon. From 10th September we are back to normal as below:

 

We want your kids’ time with us to be fun and exciting as they encounter Jesus: growing in relationship with and becoming more like Him. So whatever age your child is, they can expect to have a great time of giggles, nurturing and worship as we seek to equip them to be disciples empowered to change their world.

The Kids’ Team will be at the entrance to church every Sunday. They will be on hand to help you with where to go and what to do. This is also where we register our children ready for their groups.

Sunday Mornings

Recent statistics from the Fuller Institute’s ‘Sticky Faith’ research show that children who participate in inter-generational worship have a more mature faith than those that always stay in their groups. So as an extended church family, we start our 10.30 celebration together. Then, after a short time of interaction and worship, we ask parents to take the children to their groups in the centre next door. Towards the end of the service we ask for children in Sparks and Ignite to be collected either in time for Communion (2nd and 5th Sundays) or at 11:55am ; the Glow group will be brought to you.

Sunday Groups

We try to be flexible without being disruptive when it comes to which group a child goes in. The groups are:

  • Sparks ~ 0-2s (parents are welcome to stay)
  • Ignite ~ 2-4s
  • Glow ~ Reception – Year 5

Midweek

The Glow group have monthly Friday evening ‘socials’ either at St Nic’s or out and about. These have included film and game nights and shelter building. The Autumn 2017 programme will be released shortly.

Registration: we ask that all our children have a completed Registration form with emergency contact details and any medical information we may need to know. These are updated annually. This is the 2017 – 2018 form for Sparks and Ignite: Sunday Morning Child Registration. This is the 2017 – 2018 form for Glow and Glow Socials: Glow Registration
