We have loads going on for kids in the local area! If you go to Mersey Park Primary School, you should now know Helen, our new Young People and Families' Worker, who now comes in for assemblies and lessons. We also have plenty going on both on Sundays and during the week. If you're interested in any of the groups, you can either get in touch or just turn up!
All our groups are run by dedicated teams of leaders who have been police checked under the CRB/DBS schemes. If you have any questions about child protection and how we look after your children, please get in touch.
Little Acorns and Rock Solid are the groups which happen during our morning service. We spend time finding out about a part of the Bible - often it's the same thing that the adults are finding out about in church - and we have time to play games, make crafty things and pray for ourselves and the world about us.
Little Acorns is for ages 3 to school year 2 and meets in the church lounge (30-36 month olds are welcome if accompanied by an adult).
Rock Solid is for school years 3 to 6 and meet in the new community centre.
Pathfinders is for school years 7 to 9 and meet in the entrance in the new community centre.
We don't mind a bit of noise from little ones, but if you would like, then creche is available for parents to take their 0-2s into during the service, either in the bell tower or the church lounge.
Due to the numbers currently coming to Cheeky Monkeys, we are no longer taking any new parents/carers with their children. We will have a waiting list for all new parents/carers wishing to attend with their children. For more information or to go on the waiting list, please email Charlotte Kirkham our Young Families and Children's worker here.
Our parent and toddler group is for 0-3 year olds and their carers. It runs on Tuesday mornings in term time from 10-11.30am, and the programme is usually something like this:
10-10.30: play time. We start in the church lounge with plenty of toys for the little ones and an invigorating brew and slice of toast for the children.
10.30-10:40 story time. At around 10.45 or so we follow the feet to the front of church for a short Bible story and a song. Free time. After the story you can return to the toys in the lounge or get messy with some painting or sticking, or get creative with play doh or musical instruments.
Explore is a group for children in primary school (F2 to year 6). We meet from 5.45-7pm on Tuesdays during term time for fun, games and to explore the Bible together.
Investigate is a group for High school years 7 + and runs on a Monday evening from 6-7:15pm. We meet in the church lounge and have bible talks, chat and games. Please contact us for more details.
