What happens in VKids on a Sunday morning?

Firstly it goes without saying that we are taking relevant measures, all of which you can read all about here:

COVID-19 What to expect in VKids.pdf

However, our vision remains the same: that our children come to church and have fun, build real friendships and learn what it is to be a family of followers of Jesus who: love and serve God, love and serve one another and love and serve the world in which we live.

VKids is a fun, safe, engaging space for children to hear about God and experience His love in an age-appropriate way.

We have specially trained, DBS-checked volunteer teams all of whom have a real heart for children & families. Look out for our amazing VKids Team in their bright aqua blue T-shirts!

This term we are starting our journey through the Old Testament, and trying to spot how every story whispers Jesus' name!

We split the kids into the following groups:

Baby Room:
This is a stay and play room that you can drop in and out of, or spend the whole morning in! It opens from 10:15am until the end of the adult service and is aimed specifically at babies aged 0-12 months (over 1s are more than welcome if they're not quite ready to settle in the Studio).

We'll have team members to welcome parents/carers and their little ones, but at present we're not serving any refreshments. At around 11:15am the VKids worship leader will come and lead a few songs with whoever's in the room at the time.

The Studio, located in the Sports Hall building, is for pre-schoolers (12 months +). Check-in opens at 10:15am and you're welcome to come into the room with your child to settle them if you need to. This is a room full of toys, games and activities, with an engaging programme which includes singing, craft and stories.

The Gym, also in the Sports Hall building, is for primary school aged children. Check-in opens at 10:15am and children choose to join one of our exciting Activity Groups for the morning.

Our Activity Groups are; Lego, Art & Craft or Sport plus the Quiet Zone with some sensory activities. For kids in years 5 & 6 there is also Going Deeper.

All the kids have a time for clear and simple teaching from the Bible and join together for worship and prayer.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please send your child(ren) in with a water bottle and, if you would like to, a snack.

We look forward to meeting you in VKids!

We’re not keeping this to ourselves, we’re passing it along to the next generation— God’s fame and fortune, the marvellous things he has done.

Psalm 78: 3-4
