Building the church. Serving the community. Reaching the nations.

Children

Children

Children are a valued and vital part of church life. Our desire is for children to have fun, grasp the good news of Jesus and experience the things of the Holy Spirit. We also seek to provide support to parents and carers as they raise their family.

Sunday mornings

Our Sunday meeting starts at 10.30am with a time of worshiping God all together. We have two children’s groups that gather for about an hour from 11.15am.

The under-fives spend time in the crèche. Those aged five to eleven are taught Bible stories, pray together, memorise scripture, and play games. Their programme follows the teaching given to the youth and adults in the morning service, which we hope encourages lively discussions at home.

The team of experienced children’s workers uses bespoke material, which is delivered in a relaxed and happy way. Once a month, we hold a puppet show.

We have a heart for children with learning difficulties and physical impairments. While we don’t claim to be experts in this area, we do everything we can to cater for their needs, knowing that they, like all of us, can have a meaningful relationship with Jesus.


Friday Club

The Friday Club meets at the King’s Centre between 4 and 5.30pm every Friday during term time for children aged 5-11.

The Friday Club is open to all children aged five to eleven. The quality of teaching attracts not only youngsters from King’s Church, but also from other churches in the area. Our aim is not to poach these children, simply to bless them. About half our members come from King’s Church and half from other churches, or from no church at all.


Criss-Cross

Criss-Cross is a summer holiday club for children run by King’s Church in partnership with Christians across the Tandridge district.

It has twin aims: to give children an opportunity to learn about God’s extraordinary love; and to give Christians from different churches an opportunity to work together.


Safeguarding

The safety of children is also extremely important to us. Click here for a copy of our Child Protection Policy. If you have any concern whatsoever about the safety of any child please contact Rosemary Parsons, our Child Protection Officer, directly at safeguarding@kingschurchoxted.com

It’s great to know that our children are not just being looked after but learning and having a good time with their friends.
