Children and their families, from whatever background, are welcome to come and see what goes on at Christ Church. They will learn what it means to be in a church family that lives out its faith, where they feel valued for who they are and that it’s OK to make mistakes.
The Children’s Ministry aims to give the children faith foundations for the rest of their lives. These foundations will prepare them for life’s battles and set them free to fly beyond our wildest expectations.
If you are new there will be someone in church to help you find your way and settle your children in to their groups.

Gener8 is a place where parents feel happy to leave their children in a stimulating and safe environment in which they are blessed and surrounded by God's truth. It also offers a sanctuary for new parents just to "be".
Gener8 is split into 3 groups: 0-1yrs and 1-2 yrs in the Cafe area, and 2-3yrs in The Forum.
We have facilities for changing and a quieter space for feeding. The children have age appropriate toys and books. We worship together and have a bible story each week and with the older children we have a craft time.
