Ignite (8 - 11yrs)
Christianity is explored through discussion, games, craft and drama. All the activities are designed to help the children build their faith and trust in God as they face day to day challenges. Their confidence is developed as they are encouraged to take part regularly in the main church services. Any Ignite members who play a musical instrument or enjoy singing, are encouraged to be part of the Children's Band. The band leads the worship in our two morning services approximately once a term.
