Children's Ministry

children

Do you have children who you would like to bring to church? We run a specific programme just for kids!  On Sunday mornings we have a creche for babies and pre-schoolers, then separate groups for children of infant (KS1), junior (KS2) and high school ages. Sunday evenings start at 7pm so tend not to have younger children around, but roughly once a month we have Chatterbox with teaching for children in years 6-8, and other Sunday evenings the under 16s can chat and pray with one of the youth team over hot chocolate. For information about the rest of our work with older children and youth, see the Youth@WBC section.

As well as classes or activities for our children at every church service, we also have a very popular Tuesday morning Toddlers group during termtime, a monthly Mustard Seeds small group (again for under 5's) and an annual week-long Holiday Club in the summer which is open to primary school age children.

Holiday Club is always great fun. Our 2019 Circus Adventure holiday club ran from Mon 29th July - Fri 2nd August. Click here for more details.  Around 90 children from the local community attended the club, doing arts and crafts, engaging in drama activities, singing and enjoying a bit of friendly competition (and water fun).

We are involved in visiting local schools to lead assemblies, as well as Christian Union at Wallingford School, and we have the great privilege of running Prayer Spaces at several Wallingford schools (primary and secondary) each year.

If any of your children are in years 6 and above, we would encourage them to try our our ROC youth club on Friday evenings in term time.

All our work with children and young people whether on our premises or externally is governed by our Safeguarding Children Policy which you are welcome to download here. All who volunteer with under 18s are appropriately screened and trained and hold valid DBS certificates.

If you have any questions about the programmes or want to know more about bringing your kids along on a Sunday then please get in touch via our Contact Us page.
