We want your family to thrive…

Fathers, do not exasperate your children; instead, bring them up in the training and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4)

Our heart as a church is for the whole family to thrive, grow, and experience the love and presence of Jesus Christ. These ministries may help build your family up.

Kids and Youth Ministries

We believe that teaching children to love God and others takes place in both the home and in the church. For this reason we seek to partner with parents (the greatest teachers of all!) to instil to the next generation the love that comes from Christ. 

To help with this we have a variety of programs running on Friday and Sunday for school-aged kids and teens.

Child Dedications

Children are a gift from God. As parents, being part of a loving church family helps raise your children in the ways of the Lord. It is in this church family that your children receive love, make friends, grow and even find their purpose.

The Bible calls it is an act of obedience for parents to offer their baby to the Lord (Mark 10:13) and a public declaration of their intention as parents to lay a foundation of Godly principles, with an intention to raise their child with Christian values (Deut 6:5-7) and to guide and educate their child in accordance with God’s work (Eph 6:14).

Therefore, celebrating a moment when parents can bring their little ones to church to have some of our leaders pray with them shows this act of obedience.

If you have any further questions or would like to have your child dedicated contact Ps Peter Sweetman ([email protected]).


Families Services

Once or twice a term we host a church service specifically designed for families with children in tandem with our normal Sunday morning meetings. 

This 45-minute service features various elements for both children and grown ups including worship, family challenges, kids’ talks, multimedia, and a 15-minute message for the grown-ups (with an activity pack handed out to families to keep the kids engaged).

Families Camping Trip

Each year we pull out the tents and jump on-board for a family camping adventure with the crew from Bridgeman Families Connect.

The casual weekend will be a perfect opportunity to try camping for the first time while getting to know other families in a supportive and friendly environment.

With a range of fun activities planned, it is a hit with the whole family.
