Families with children are very welcome to worship with us at Kings.
On Sunday mornings children join their families during the first half of the worship meeting. We encourage parents to worship alongside their children and help them to join in the songs and prayers.
During the second half of the morning there is a crèche for babies through age 2, and Kids@Kings has four other age groups:
Fireflies: preschool and reception (age 3-5)
Sparklers: school years 1-3 (age 5-8)
Torches: school years 4-6 (age 8-11)
Lazers: school years 7-9 (age 11-13)
The Kids@Kings group time includes refreshments, games, crafts, Scripture Union Bible lessons, and prayer. On the second and fourth Sunday of each month the children have a combined Kid’s Worship time before they break into their normal groups.
It is our hope that the time we have with the children will complement the teaching and instruction they are receiving at home and that God will use it to enliven and solidify their faith.
King's Church has a comprehensive child protection policy. All those working with children follow these guidelines and all of our children's workers are CRB checked.

The Orchard is an after-school café serving Fairtrade treats, with free-play and craft for kids aged 3-7 years (younger siblings can come too!) and a chillout area for parents/carers. Just two minutes walk from St Oswald’s Infant and Nursery School, The Orchard is a great place to unwind at the end of the day and have fun with friends. Tom Barber runs The Orchard staff team, and newcomers are always welcome. Get in contact for more information.
Babies – preschoolers (and their parents/carers)
Wednesdays, 9.30-11.30am, The Appleby Rooms
Pipsqueaks is a lively, friendly gathering of babies and preschoolers with their parents and carers. The morning is full of playtime, story time, music, and refreshments for kids and adults. There are two large rooms with a huge variety of toys and space to explore and play. Abi Northover and Hazel Urwin head it up with the help of many church volunteers who are happy to play with the children and chat with adults. Newcomers are always welcome. Get in contact for more information.
