Come and join the fun in RMC Junior Church!
Children and Youth
We usually meet on Sunday mornings during term time, from 10.30am in the hall, and join the congregation for the first part of our worship before we head out to our own activities. During the morning we have a circle time when we might share news and prayers, sing or play a game. We then divide into two groups with different activities inspired by a Bible passage or theme. We use a resource called Roots for ideas and inspiration, which is lectionary based, and find this works well.
We currently have 10-12 children and young people who join us regularly, aged 4 - 17, and there is a crèche available for babies and children under 3.
Some Sundays we remain in church with the congregation for an All Age Worship service and currently we do not meet as a group on Sundays during school holidays, but children and young people are welcome in church on these weeks and there are activities to do in the coffee lounge with your parents if you fancy dipping out of the service for a while.
During the year we get up to all sorts! We usually write and perform our very own Nativity in December, have the occasional party and sometimes a bake sale for Junior Mission for All. We have also attended the Big Church Day Out for the past few years and hope to again this May.
Recently, junior church made an animation to tell the story of Daniel and the Lion's Den.

Junior Church Update Autumn 2021
After a very unusual year of keeping in touch via WhatsApp (with a daily Christian song), sharing craft videos and services on YouTube, and our occasional Lighthouse children and family services, we are starting to meet again as Junior Church face to face!
It was great to see everyone in our church garden a few times in July (see below for our beautiful bug hotel!) and at Mewsbrook Park for a picnic recently.
We are holding three sessions for Junior Church alongside the mid-morning service, with three groups for various ages (crèche, primary school age and youth).
Dates: 3rd Oct, 10th Oct and 17th Oct 2021
Time: 10.30am to 11.30am
Booking: not essential but would be really helpful!
