Children’s Groups Associated with Christ Church

The J-Team

The J-Team is a club for boys & girls aged 5-11 years who meet on a Friday evening from 6.00 - 8.00pm during school term time.

In the 2 hours that the children are with us, we will have a 30 minute ‘God slot’ where we teach the children about the Bible through interactive games and activities.

After the ‘God slot’ it’s basically up to each child what they want to do for the remainder of the evening. They can choose from playing indoor football, cricket, soft play dodgeball, various board games, wii games, badminton, snooker, table tennis, arts & crafts, it really is up to the children, we’re just here to join in the fun with the kids and to make sure that everybody is having a great time.

A new scheme that started this year to help strengthen links between the church and J-Team is a  ‘prayer sponsor’ scheme. Members of the church will have an individual child that they keep in their prayers. NO  contact is made between sponsor and child and the sponsor will know only their first name and a fun questionnaire that the children filled out with one of the team leaders. If a sponsor wishes to send their child a Birthday or Christmas card then they can be passed on via a J-Team leader.

All this for the unbelievably low price of just £1 per child, and with each additional sibling  paying just 50p each. We do have a tuck shop as well, manned by Janet, Dorothy & Judy, so why not treat the kids and leave them some pennies to spend on some sweeties.

Lighthouse - Sunday School

We are a  small, friendly and welcoming group, with children of various ages, who meet each week on a Sunday morning from 10.15 - 11.00am, to learn about God and the Bible by reading stories, playing games, making things and doing activity sheets.

There is no ‘Lighthouse’ group on the first Sunday of the month as that is when we have our ‘Celebrate Together’ service in the church.

“We would love to welcome you to our group” says Dawn, our Lighthouse co-ordinator.
