Bringing children closer to God
At Holy Trinity we really value our children and aim that they should have the best time of their week with us whilst coming to know more about God and his great love for them. Each week we have over 100 children in our 0-10s work, with regular groups on Sunday mornings and a programme of events throughout the year.
Each Sunday morning we start our service together as a family with children in the main church with a family-orientated time where all ages worship God together and learn something more about Him in a creative and often humorous way. Children then break out into their age specific groups as outlined below. Children love the community present in these groups, finding lasting significant friends and caring and supportive leadership teams. Each group aims to engage the children with God and his word in creative and dynamic ways.
Jelly Babies (ages 0-2 years)
A creche facility where parents are welcome to stay or to return to the service. Lots of care, play and for the older ones a drink biscuit and story.
Jelly Tots (ages 2-4 years)
A nursery style format for children who are happy to be left by parents with 30 minutes of structured activity and a lot of free play.
Bubbles (for Reception and School Year 1 children)
A great time of stories, songs, crafts and games. With a strong emphasis on creativity and fun just right for early years.
Splash (School Years 2 & 3)
Dive in to a time of games, fun and finding out more of who God is and who you are made to be.
Wave (School Years 4 & 5)
Catch this exhilarating wave for the ride of your life. Wave takes you deeper in your friendship with God and each other. A weekend away each year adds the icing to the cake.
As well as meeting weekly on a Sunday we have great extra events throughout the year. Keep an eye on the church calendar for the next event or drop Alex a line to find out more.

Jesus taught his disciples to value children, and so we aim to invest our very best resources in children's work. Our Sunday groups have a team of over 40 adults involved in them. All leaders of groups are CRB checked, and are passionate about providing kids with great times and helping them to know God. Many of our leaders are skilled professionals who work with children in their full time work. If you would like to join one of our children’s teams or help with any of the activities below please contact Alex to talk further about this.
For further details about our activities for children and young people, contact Alex Scott at the church office on 0116 254 8981, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. We'd love to hear from you.
