We consider children and young people to be an extremely important part of our Beacon community. We take their care very seriously, but love to provide fun, challenging and safe environments for them to learn and play in. Here are some of our Youth and Children activities for you to find out more….
Sunday Children’s Church
Our Sunday morning 9.30am & 11.30am services at Sandon Road (ST16 3HW) includes a wide variety of children’s activities. For our youngest attendees (under 3’s) we can provide a selection of toys to keep little hands busy while they accompany their parents or carers in the service.
Those aged 3-6 years can enjoy their own class with a Bible story, crafts and plenty of themed free play. Those aged 7-11 years get the opportunity for more active games, Bible story and teaching as well as crafts. High schoolers can take part in a Bible discussion with games and activities.
We also run a number of small groups for young people providing them the opportunity to grow in their faith together. For more information about youth activities please contact [email protected].
