Sunday Service Groups
Tinies is fully supervised during the entire Sunday service (10.00-11.30am) by our crèche workers, but parents are welcome to stay. Since we believe it’s never too early to teach our little ones God’s truth we do run a 5-minute teaching segment called ‘See &Know’, an inspiring programme teaching the children through simple nursery-rhyme style songs with visual aids. Of course, there is also ample time for free play and snacks.
Explorers is fully supervised during the entire service (10.00-11.30am) by our crèche workers, but parents are welcome to stay. A 10-minute teaching segment called ‘See & Know’, an inspiring programme teaching the children about God, through simple nursery-rhyme style songs with visual
aids. Lots of free play time and time for snacks too!
A Nursery is provided for parents of young babies. This warm and comfortable area has changing, sleeping and feeding facilities. The Sunday Service is streamed into the nursery for your enjoyment.
Juniors bridges the gap from Explorers to Adventurers. We begin our time together with the older children in the chapel and then break away to the Gym. Our great team of teachers and parent helpers get the children involved with age-appropriate, Bible-centred teaching and lots of hands-on activities to keep little minds busy. Snack time is a vital part of the program (according to the kids) to keep their energy up for lots of fun learning, games and crafts. Parents are welcome to stay.
The Adventurers, including Juniors begin their lesson time together in the chapel. We have a time of praise & worship, celebrate birthdays, have a memory verse and support a child through Tear Fund. After that the children split into their Small Groups according to their school year. They spend 40 minutes together exploring the Bible lesson for the week with age appropriate games, activities and devotions.
Amplify Sunday youth go straight to their lesson as they are dismissed from the main service each Sunday. The purpose of is to bridge the gap between Adventures and the main service. We have two groups, one for girls and one for boys. We follow a set curriculum that is age-appropriate yet is a fairly in-depth Bible Study.
