Youth & Children

Jump in, be part of the scene at Kingsland no matter how young or old. There’s something for everyone. Our children and youth have a great choice of activities mid week and Sundays that will help them learn and discover how to follow Jesus with all their heart, strength, body and mind. No matter what age, there’s something for your family to help you grow and adventure together.

If you are in year 9-13 at school or college check out the Kingsland youth ministry. There’s lots of good things happening, its all relevant for your life and your friends too.

At Kingsland there always seems to be loads going on, we meet on Tuesday evenings at the church, we talk about life and get how our faith affects things and we pray together. These nights are really for those that want to take their faith seriously and learn more, pray and have a place to talk about whatever is happening and get a God perspective on it.

Friday nights from 7.30 – 9pm is the CO3 cafe night. With chance to chat, use the computers for games and maybe even homework, activities and discussions. CO3 is a chilled place to be on Fridays. We do it because we just love being active and having fun with the young people. We want to have fun hanging out with you and hear about what is happening in your life.

Then there are Sunday mornings with Maggie, Tom, Charlyn, Samuel, and Kayode. Davy is our youth worker and comes to hang out sometimes too.

We’re involved in Youth Church once a month, even those of us who prefer the morning sermon to the youth group tend to join in on Youth Church Sundays.

Don’t miss out – we also do crazy things like sleepovers, Play Station nights and of course some great summer Christian festivals which are always great fun when we go together as a big group!

Meeting on Sunday mornings and Friday nights, “CO3” is the place to hang out if you are in secondary school.

Our group Pals meets on Sundays for discussion, games, bible and being together. So, like the other Sunday groups, we join the rest of the church at the start of the service and then have our own group to encourage each other and learn together.

Every month we meet together for Youth Church which is the most amazing place to be.

Our kids love to have fun, play games and talk about the bible on Fridays and Sundays!

Are you at junior school and do you like to have fun when’s schools out? Then come to Livewires on Friday nights from 6.30-7.30 and there will be loads of fun! We do loads of things like tree rope swings, wide games, bonfire night fireworks, swimming parties … I can’t remember everything because we are always doing so much, We all meet up at the church in Lexden and have a crazy time together. If you bring a friend, they can come for free on the first night and after that we pay 50p subs each time. The leaders are all nice too, so we can have lots of fun.

On Sunday mornings at 11am, we all get together in the church with the adults first but then after a while we go out to make our own group which we call Adventurers. We learn stuff from the bible, pray, play games, sometimes we do craft and just hang out together with our friends.

There’s a group for all of our active youngsters who like discovering the world through play and adventure, bible stories and songs.

From toddlers to Key Stage 1, each of our groups is designed to be a place of fun and constructive play through which they can learn about the love of Jesus on a Sunday morning.

Our 9.15am service has a Children’s Club for all ages to participate in. Our 11am service offers three programmes for kids up to year 2: Creche is for our smallest ones; Bubbles is a fun-filled group for 2-3 year olds; and Splash is for our 4-5 year olds who are at school. They all start after some time in worship together with the adults.

Our team ensures the children’s wellbeing is a key priority. It is an honour to be teaching these young children, sharing with them as they grow in their understanding of Jesus’ love, explore friendships and the world around them. It is a privilege to be a small part of their lives and work with their parents too.

The groups run each Sunday morning during the 9.15 and 11am services, enabling parents to participate in the main service while their children are close by enjoying the activities in the Starters group.

Once a month the 11am groups join Mega Kids club with the rest of the primary school children.

All our childrens teams here at Kingsland are DBS checked and work hard to plan appropriate activities for this age group who seem to have boundless energy and can be very excitable – it’s great!
