Children at Emmanuel 

At Emmanuel, our children are active participants in the life of the church. On Sunday mornings, children stay in the worship service for the first 30 minutes, participating in songs and prayer.  After the first part of the service, they leave for their age-appropriate Bible clubs in the canteen where they will take a closer look at the Bible, pray, and grow in their friendships with their peers.

We currently have a crèche/toddler group and 3 different children’s clubs based on age:

  • Scramblers - aged 0-3
  • Transformers - Pre-school, Reception & Year 1
  • Trailblazers - School years 2 & 3
  • Heroes - School years 4,5 & 6

Each of our children’s groups is using material from the Truth:78 ministry which was formerly known as Children Desiring God.
