We have had to make some changes to our normal procedures so please read the following information carefully so that we are all able to stay safe.

Please can all children and young people arrive at least 10 minutes before the start of the service and meet in the foyer where there will be a member of the Sunday school team waiting to meet them.
Following our safeguarding procedures the parents and carers of younger children will need to sign the children in and will be given a slip which you will need to hand back when you collect your child after the service.
Once everyone has arrived, they will be taken directly to their classes as one 'bubble' and will not come into the service at any point.

After the service they will be brought back to the foyer in their bubble and should be collected by their parents and leave the building as soon as possible.

Finally, all children and young people will need their own pencil case - siblings in the same class can share.

Everyone will need: a pencil, rubber and short ruler
Secondary pupils may also wish to have a pen and 2-3 highlighters
Primary pupils will need their own sissors, glue stick and some colouring pencils or colouring pens.

We look forward to welcoming your children and sharing with them, however, if you do not feel comfortable bringing your children to church during the current pandemic please consider utilising online resources which are available online from the website https://answersingenesis.co.uk where there is free access to online books and videos for use with children.


If you have any queries about bringing your children to Church during these challening times please contact Jeremy Hollis:

Sunday School

We love welcoming kids at church, and consider them to be a gift and a precious responsibility

   We want you to feel really welcome to come as a family with children, we know that church can sometimes feel daunting, especially with young children, but all are welcome.

We believe Sunday school work is vital, and are wholly committed to teaching children the timeless truths about the Lord Jesus Christ from God’s Word, the Bible to equip them to meet the challenges of todays society.

 The youth work at Koinonia is overseen by Jeremy Hollis, should you require any further information please do not hesitate to contact him:

You are free to make use of our classes should you wish, or keep your child/ren with you in the service, whichever you prefer.

There are Sunday School classes held during every Sunday morning service(with the exceptions of Family Services), all children are welcome to come along whether you are regular attendees or are just visiting.

We currently have 3 groups available:

Creche: Ages 0-3

Primaries/Juniors: Ages 4-10 (Up to the end of school year 5)

Juniors/Young Teens: Ages 10 upwards

All families start off by sitting together in church, we usually have a simple talk, prayer, and sing some songs before the children will be dismissed for their classes. We use a mixture of Go Teach and Mustard Seeds materials, and our lessons will usually involve listening to a bible story, a game/craft/activity/discussion/worksheets (Age dependant).

Each week the junior children receive points for attendance, bringing their Bible and for bringing back their completed worksheets from the previous week. Accumulation of these points results in small treats.

Older children who are in regular attendance are invited to work towards the Sword Award scheme which encourages the young people to get involved more deeply in the life of the Church and to undertake acts of service as they grow spiritually.





We are a small fellowship but we endeavor to run various events throughout the year including a Sunday School Outing, a church weekend Away and other activities around key events in the Christian calendar. Details of which will be shown as and when events are happening.



                                 ~ A BIBLICAL VIEW OF CHILDREN ~

Jesus was very clear in his message to his disciples and to us. Children matter. You only need to read Matthew 18 verses 1-6 to see this.

 Jesus specifically made time for children, to come, just as they are, with their open hearts and questioning minds, and their ability to completely engage without holding anything back.

God has worked through children in amazing ways.

Think of Samuel, who heard God's voice, calling him by name.

Think of Miriam, who God used to watch over her baby brother, to esure his safety. That baby who was given the name Moses.

Think of David, who saw adults cowed by the threat of the force of the Philistines, and who stepped up, and slew Goliath with a stone.

 A child can be passionate for Christ in a way that no adult can, they are a blessing, an encouragement and a challenge, they are a gift.

 Luke 18 16
