Children and Youth Ministry
AS MORE AND MORE WEEKS GO BY WITHOUT MONDAY CAFE, FRIDAYCLUB AND CRUCIAL THE TEAM ARE REALLY MISSING HAVING FUN WITH YOU ALL. THERE IS STILL LOTS OF FUN TO BE HAD AT HOME!
EXPLORERS- over our last weeks together we had been learning about what god is like, can you remember any of the words we learnt about god? why not try and find an awesome story in the bible that you think shows what god is like. Why not also practice the high 5 song and teach it to a member of your family! There is some kids colouring on the resources page.
CRUCIAL- School and collage work may seem more stressful then ever now, its important to always remember you can lean on God no matter what. This is the perfect time to connect with God, read the bible and be thankful to him for everything we do have. Please contact us if you are really struggling we are always happy to pray with you. scroll down and find some helpful youth resources.
At Christ church we provide a wide range of activities for ages between 6-18
Our youth and family ministry is head up by a great team with one part time employed member of staff and a great backing of volunteers.
