Children

In fun, exciting, relative, and Biblical ways our team are committed to working alongside parents and carers to see their children becoming fully devoted and excited about all God has planned for their lives.

Mission statement

(Think of it as the sports stadium we play in): ‘Here to love God and people’

Vision statement

(The particular sport we play in the stadium): “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, so that the next generation would know them and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in the Lord.Psalm 78 v 4-7 (NIV)

We aim to do this by:

  • Leading as many children to Jesus as possible
  • Seeing those who come become mature disciples of Christ
  • Encouraging, releasing and training those already involved, and wanting to be involved, in ministry with children
Sunday services - 10.30am

All the children worship with their families and the rest of the church congregation for the first part of the main service, usually leaving to go to their groups at about 11 am. The groups, and service, are planned to finish at about 12 pm.

Should you wish to make use of them, there are a small number of children’s activity packs available at the back of the church. At any time, during any service, please feel free to take them back to your seats and return them once finished with.

St. Luke’s Crèche

For children aged between birth and 3 years old. When the children leave the service, please go through the main hall and follow the signs. Additionally, parents with new babies can also make use of the seating area in the church foyer, where the service is relayed on a TV monitor and can also be seen through the large window.

St. Luke’s Kidz

For children aged between 3 and 11 years (school year 6). The children are together for some activities and then divide into age appropriate groups during the session. The 3–6 year old group is called ‘Kidzone’, while the 7–11 year old group is called ‘K4J’ (Kidz For Jesus). We use the Workshop Rotation Model (WoRM) curriculum. Please speak with a children’s team member, identifiable by their badges, should you have any questions.

Kidz-In services (Third Sunday of each month)

Aimed at getting all of God’s family here at St. Luke’s worshipping together, the service is designed for children, for you, for your friends, and Grandma and Grandad too! The service is fast paced, creative, with flag waving and there are no worries about children making lots of noise (God made them that way) and often in a café style where great tea, coffee and good cakes are served as an integral part of the service. We try to squeeze it all into an hour too!

Café ‘n’ Tots

The group gives a warm welcome to mums and carers of babies and small children. It's a place to make friends and be spoilt. We provide fresh coffee, pots of tea, home-made cakes, biscuits and fruit. Tablecloths and flowers make us feel more like a proper cafe than a typical toddler group and we love to build relationships with all who come, and give support and prayer when needed. We meet Monday morning, afternoon and Thursday morning in the church hall.

Photography / Media Policy

As a church congregation St. Luke’s members respect each other’s privacy, so although photos / videos are sometimes taken on special personal or Church Family occasions (e.g. Christenings, Weddings, Gatherings etc.), by individuals or by ‘the Church’, we like to know that the people we are photographing don’t object.

Obviously the publication of individuals’ photos / videos in print or on the Internet needs the verbal consent of those photographed. As a Church we may sometimes add photos / videos to the Church website.

For this reason Parents / Carers are annually requested to consent to the taking and potential publication of anonymous photos / videos related to children’s group activities.

However, if any person (adult or child) finds themselves the subject of a group or personal photo / video which they would rather not be part of, they need only to make their preferences known to the photographer, who will respect their choice to withdraw from the group or to cancel the shot and delete the photo / video.

Belonging

From the moment we are born, we need a family, we need to belong in a community of people.
