Youth and Children
Christ Church is involved year-round in fun events and activities for children and young people of all ages.
At Christ Church Youth & Children Events, all volunteers have an up-to-date Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.
At Christ Church our young people and children are just as much part of the Church family as anyone else. Children remain with the adults for the first part of the meeting. They then head out to their various groups where they are taught the Bible in a fun, engaging, age-appropriate way. All our children's leaders including crèche helpers are subject to a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check.

For the last few years we have had an easter craft morning on Good Friday, run by our volunteers. We have loads of exciting sensory crafts, messiness, snack, stories and song-time for 0-4 year olds.
5s and up have their own fun next door, with crafts, drama, games, easter egg hunts and challenges. There's even refereshments available for parents!
Come and join us on Good Friday (21st April 2017), 10:00-12:00 for loads of fun for all ages. It's absolutely free!
Last year we ran a 'Nativity from Scratch' for children over 5. About 25 kids joined us on the Saturday to learn a nativity, which they performed the next day at our carol service. There was also baking, Christmas crafts, games, singing, lunch and snacks! All free, loads of fun, and an opportunity for parents to finish christmas shopping! Check out a few pics below
Throughout the year we organise fun socials for 11 year olds and up. We've done games nights, burger-making, trampolining, Wet n Wild, and loads more! We also take these youngsters on a weekend away - filled with loads of silliness and games and learning about Jesus. Check out the video the young people produced on the last weekend away!
This is our regular group for 14-18 year olds. We meet fortnightly on Saturday evenings for a meal, fun, games, studying the bible and chatting together.
