We're the Kingdom Kids Team! We love working with children of all ages and aim to see them become disciples of Jesus, that they would know God and love Him with all their heart, soul, mind and strength (and to have fun on the journey!). We have lots of experience working with kids both inside and outside of ministry, our team includes teachers, teaching assistants and early years professionals. Olly leads the children and young people's ministry at The Gateway Church, if you'd like to know more about him, follow this link to the leadership page. Olly is qualified in paediatric first aid.
Our children's discipleship groups gather on a Sunday morning, during the main service, after a time of sung worship. We currently have two groups, Kindling and Spark. In both groups, the children learn about Jesus and are encouraged to pray, discuss their thoughts and have lots of fun! At TGC, we value our children as part of the church by investing in them and encouraging them to take an active role in church life and Sunday services.
We are the youngest children in church. We learn about Jesus through listening to Bible stories, watching videos, playing games and doing crafts. We love praising God through sung worship, our favourite song is 'Hosanna Rock'! We also have lots of free time to get to know each other, play with our favoruite toys and eat some yummy snacks.
We are the older children at Gateway. We love reading the Bible together and talking about who Jesus is and what he has done for us. We enjoy praying to God and thanking Him for lots of different things but we particularly like to thank Him for our friends and family. We like to make things that help us to learn about God and that remind us of who He is. Recently, we've been thinking about all the people in our lives who don't know Jesus and how important it is to share the Good News with them!
