Children at G2 Burnholme

Our mission is to help children discover and follow Jesus as their friend.

The vision of G2 Kids is to help the kids:

 1.     Discover Jesus

2.    Grow in faith

3.    Live for Jesus

Children's Groups

On a usual Sunday children spend the first part of the meeting in the main hall with their parents. The meeting starts from 3.45pm and children go out with their leaders to their groups in classrooms just after 4pm.

Registration

New children need to register with Fiona, or you can pre-register here.

When you drop-off your child to their group, you will be given a blue card with their name which you must return when you collect your child. We will be introducing electronic registration soon!

Drinks, Snacks and Free SNACK-PACK

Drinks and snacks are available from 3.30pm and to make it easier for parents to stay after the service we also offer a free snack-pack for children at the end of the service. This needs to be ordered by writing your child's name on one of the bags available at the blue table. [Parents, please check the pack-up bag for any foods your child is not able to eat].

On Sunday we have 4 groups for children:

Crèche is for children under the age of 3 providing a child-friendly space in the main hall during our worship. The crèche then moves to a separate room for space to play where they can make as much noise as they like and have a go at some craft activities!

 Bubbles is for children in pre-school and reception

We also run some special Sundays each term:

On the Sundays in half term we run The Big Chill - all kids together chilling out with lego, jigsaws, booked, craft and more.

Mosaic.jpg

Once a term all the children's groups and youth come together for Mosaic - an event to bring all ages together and encourage our children to invite their friends along to church. It is loud, fun and full of worship, stories, crafts and games.

Mosaic starts from 3.30pm to allow parents to have a coffee in peace and chat to their friends before the service begins. Mosaic runs until 5pm, finishing at the same time as the main service. This is one of the highlights of our term at G2!

“You have taught the little children to praise you perfectly.”
— Psalm 8:2 Living Bible
