At Godfirst our vision is for every child to encounter Jesus, to learn to live the life and mission of Jesus and to love gathering together with His Church! We provide safe, fun, lively and interactive children’s groups for babies through to 14 year-olds. Whether through worship, prayer, discussions, games, crafts or opening the bible together, we aim to help the children grow in their knowledge of God’s word and create opportunities that draw them into their own trust in Jesus.
We currently have four supervised age groups that cater for the children and youth at Godfirst:
Babies to Pre-school (age 3)
Pre-school (age 3) to Year 1
Year 2 to Year 5
Year 6 to Year 9. Godfirst Youth currently meet every other week. Alternate Sundays they can remain in the main meeting for the talk or the younger youth are welcome in Elevate.
When you arrive
When you arrive at Godfirst please take the time to sign your child into their groups before the meeting starts. We operate a sticker system which will be explained to you upon your arrival. The children are in the main meeting for the sung worship and you can take them out to their groups around 11am. Please collect them at the end of the meeting. For parents with young children, we have a buggy area at the back of the main meeting room that you are welcome to use. If you are uncomfortable leaving your young child in Sparklers you can stay out with them until they are settled.
We always aim to keep your children safe at Godfirst, so we operate a tight Safeguarding Policy and all team leaders are trained and DBS checked. A copy of our safeguarding policy is available on request.
The children at Godfirst love hanging out together and as a part of our Godfirst communities with their families, they learn to live the life and mission of Jesus with the rest of the church.
