CHILDREN AT GRACE CHURCH WAKEFIELD
We currently have around fifteen children at our Sunday morning service most weeks and a number of them are of Primary School age.
Our service is relaxed. The children stay in with the adults at the start and join in with the songs and listening to the Bible being read. There is usually a something for the kids too, like a song or a short message.
Just before the main talk (which lasts 20-30 minutes) primary school aged children can go out to their Sunday School class. This is led by an experienced DBS checked member of the church in a room off the main hall. Here, they learn about Jesus from the Bible using stories, games, crafts and songs.
The very young children are welcome to stay in the meeting with the adults (we don't mind them making noise!) but we also have a creche room where parents can take their children to relax and play with toys. In here, parents can still listen to the Bible teaching through an audio system that runs from the main hall. There's also a young children's area at the back of the main hall so parents have a choice of the creche room or letting their children play here.
Grace Church Wakefield Youth Group
Every Friday night during term time we run a youth group for secondary school and college aged kids. The group meets in Jubilee Hall's café room and is run by 4 DBS-checked leaders.
The youth group starts at 7.15pm and finishes at 8.45pm. During this time the kids play games, chat and eat snacks but most importantly, they also take part in a relaxed Bible study run by the group leaders.
If you, or your child, are interested in coming along please contact us for more details or join us one Friday night at Jubilee Hall.
