GPC Children and Families Ministry
Young people form a big part of the church family here at GPC, and we worship as an all age group for the first part of every service.
Unless it is an All Age Service, the children and youth then leave for their groups, and provision is made for every age.
Age 0 to 4 years
Children have a short ‘See and Know’ circle time of songs, a short story and prayer, then time to play and have some snack.
Age 4 years to P7: split into 2 groups- Age 4 to P5, P6-S1 Huddle
Children are registered as they come into the hall then go into their groups where introductions are made. We learn about God together through looking at the bible, discussion, crafts, games, and prayer with and for each other.
The younger children stay in the hall, the P6-S1 Huddle usually meet in the Prayer Room.
For the children to experience the fullness of life spoken about in John 10v10:
‘I have come in order that you might have life—life in all its fullness.’
Our aims- the 3 L’s
We want the children to feel Loved
We want the children to have Lots of fun in their groups
We want the children to know that Jesus is aLive- we want them to come to a living faith
