Children’s Work

Children’s Work

Welcome to our page for all things Children’s Work. We run two groups on a Sunday morning for primary aged children — Ground Breakers (ages 2 to Year 1) and XStream (Y2-6). We also have a creché which carers and babies can use (with a live feed and viewing window so you can still hear and see the service). Throughout the year we have various events happening and we also link up with Thrive Youth Ministries three times for their Thrive Juniors event — when all local primary aged children are invited to worship together.

During this pandemic our Xstream are meeting on Zoom every other week. If you want your child to get involved, please connect with us so we can have chat about what happens in a ‘normal’ session. If you have Secondary School children, please visit here.

Christmas Stars

We’d love you help in creating a display at church. We need your help by making stars. You can decorate them however you want but you do need to use BOLD colours as people will be looking from the street. Clare has done a video below to help you get started… You should have also received an email explaining what to do once you’ve made them. HAVE FUN!

Virtual Sunday School

For those looking for something different for their children to engage with, Kerry came across this at Spring Harvest. It looks fab! Their first episode is below, or you can jump to their channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMu2bG8L2dp7ywUZVa9uXDA

School Resources

Looking for some help with homeschooling during Covid-19. There are lots of useful resources on Hoole Baptist Church, Chester’s website. Thanks Kerry for passing this on.

Talking about Coronavirus

About Coronavirus Children’s illustrator Axel Scheffler has worked with doctors, psychologists and teachers to create a new book for children about the Coronavirus. It might help explain these strange times we’re living in to little ones, with some nice tips about how they can help and what to do if they’re feeling worried. https://nosycrow.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Coronavirus_INS.pdf

Thinking about Jesus

Good Friday Activities Some of you would normally go to St Nick’s on Good Friday and take part in their interactive worship. As this can’t happen, Anita has kindly sent the activities to us. Enjoy!
