YP & Children

Building up the next generation

 

We are blessed to have children & young people making up a third of our church family. We run a number of groups and activities for these ages throughout the week.

 

“Children are a heritage from the LORD, offspring a reward from Him. Like arrows in the hands of a warrior are the children of one’s youth.”
- Psalm 127:3-4

Semi-Quavers

A welcoming toddler group for parents, carers and preschoolers. We offer a wide range of toys, alongside themed craft activities and sensory play. Our speciality is a baby singing session, which takes place in a smaller, quieter room, offering the opportunity for you to bond and interact with your baby, and promoting speech and language development. A rowdy and rambunctious toddler singing session takes place at the end of the group in the main hall too!

When: Tuesdays, 10:30am-12:15pm
Where: Buckshaw Village Community Centre

Messy Church

A partnership between local Methodist churches & Buckshaw Village Church, Messy Church involves crafts, games, snacks and is a fun and interactive worship for all the family. Oh, and, it gets... er... messy! A fantastic way to begin exploring the Christian faith and the person of Jesus, engaging the whole family in different aspects of worship.

Legacy

We make special provision for children during the Sunday Morning service. Legacy is for primary school aged children. They stay in the hall for the first part of the service and then are walked over to the school building for games and Bible teaching with maybe craft, singing or whatever takes our fancy as long as it’s fun! The children are brought back into the community centre at the end of the service.

When: During our Sunday morning meeting, 10:45am-12:15pm
Where: Buckshaw Village Community Centre

Arrows

A small group for young people aged 11-18 to get together, chill, chat and challenge each other to grow in their faith. Bring a friend or two and be prepared to have an awesome time looking deeper into the character of Jesus. We play games, share food, celebrate life and ask big questions.

When: Sundays, 6:30-8:00pm

Crèche

Children are welcome to stay in the service but babies and pre-schoolers can also go to the small room in the community centre for a bible story, prayers, songs and lots of playing! The creche is staffed but parents and carers are welcome to stay if needed!

When: During Sunday morning service
Where: Buckshaw Village Church

Holiday Club

Each summer we run a holiday club for children of primary school age. We have a different theme every year, for example, Superheroes, Pirates, Time-Travellers! The sessions are packed with games, craft, puzzles, videos, challenges and more to help children engage with the Christian message. It’s run for 4 mornings during the summer holidays. The holiday club finishes with an evening of family fun. It is a great week for the church family to serve together and get to know one another better.

Cost: £10 per child
When: Monday 19th August - Thursday 22nd August, 2019
