For children aged 5 to 11, Radiant Kids is a fun and action packed session in which children gather to encounter God’s love and presence through singing, stories, teaching, prayer, games & more.
Each child is really important to us and as people arrive at church one of our Radiant Kids team is on hand to greet every child. Each child is registered into the group, and we ask parents some questions about their child to ensure that we can safely look after all children.
We’d love you to stay in the church service whilst your children are in Radiant Kids, but we will look after them if you are not able to. We will supervise your children from the time they are registered in at 10:00am through to the time you collect them at 11:30am.
There is so much to pack into the programme for Radiant Kids, and their time starts by joining the main church service for the first 15 minutes where they are supervised by our trained team.
Following this the children are led to Radiant Kids where their session continues through to 11:30am.
Some practical points:
We operate a Safeguarding Policy and all of our volunteers and staff are CRB/DBS checked.
If you are bringing your child for the first time to Radiant Kids, we’ll ask you to fill out a consent form, a copy of this can be found in the resources link below if you’d like to bring one with you.

For younger children we run the following groups on Sundays:
Crèche: There is a fully equipped and supervised crèche facility which is suitable for children aged 0 – 2 ½. This is available from approximately 10:30am, and we announce when the group is starting. All the children are supervised and are able to engage in a range of age appropriate play activities. Parents bring their child to the session, and are welcome to stay with their children if they wish.
Sparklers: For children are aged 2 ½ – 4 we have a great group called Sparklers which is designed just for them. Sparklers takes the self directed play which children enjoy in crèche and moves towards more structured and supported play and fun times in a loving and supportive environment in which the children learn about God’s love for them. This group is available from approximately 10:30am, and we announce when the group is starting. Parents bring their child to the session and we look after them and make sure they are returned to parents in the main meeting.
In addition to our groups on Sundays we also run a mid week parent and toddler group, Little Stars. For more information please go here.
