We serve the children of Hope Church by providing fun environments full of biblical teaching that shows them the greatness of Jesus.
“…we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord.” – Psalm 78:4
At Hope Church we aim to build homes where Jesus is loved, trusted, obeyed and praised. We seek to care for and equip parents to raise their children in the faith and prepare them for all of life.
Throughout the year we hold parent specific events on a range of topics designed to equip us in our parenting. All parents are welcome. These upcoming events are advertised in the weekly flyer or contact David Dent about specific topics.
“…do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord.”- Eph. 6:4
On Sunday mornings we have four age specific groups. All our leaders are DBS checked and participate in our safeguarding seminars. All children begin worship with the rest of the congregation and go to their groups when directed. The three older groups meet upstairs at Brian Jackson House on the Ground Floor and the 0-2’s Creche group is on the same level as the service.
4-7 years old.
This group is for children when they turn 4 through till the end of year 2.
7-11 years old.
This group is for children in school years 3, 4, 5, and 6.

For any questions contact David Dent.

On Sunday mornings we offer provision for 0-4s.  All our leaders are been DBS checked and participate in safeguarding training seminars. The purpose of creche is to make sure children are happy and safe, so that their parents and carers are able to enjoy worship. In Creche we sing Christian songs and in Sparklers there is a time for Bible story each week.

From 0-23 months old.
The younger children are accommodated in a room adjacent to the main worship space in the basement of Brian Jackson House.
From 2-4 years old. 
Sparklers are cared for in a well-equipped playroom on the ground floor.

Creche and Sparklers registration:
Please sign your child into creche when you arrive before worship begins at the welcome desk. Your child will be given a name sticker and you will be given a number for our alert system. The groups start after the children’s talk, about 10 minutes into the service at which point you may bring your child directly to the room. At the end of the service, please come to collect your child promptly!

Creche and Sparklers alert system:
To minimise disruption, each child is allocated a number when they are registered, and if they are unsettled or need a parent/carer for a nappy change or to be taken to the toilet, the number of the child will be displayed on the overhead screen during the service. If this happens, please come to the appropriate room swiftly.
