Kids are such an important part of the Alive Church, St George’s family!
We are For Everyone, Always, and we want all families to feel welcome and to belong in our community.
Alive Kids on Sundays
On Sundays*, Alive Kids runs alongside our 10:30am gathering. We love to meet together to have loads of fun, and of course learn about Jesus!
We want everyone to feel welcome and looked after, and have provision for kids from 0 to year 5 (and of course from year 6 onwards we have Alive Youth):
Our U3 Space at the back of church is for babies and carers if needed during the gathering. You will still be able to hear and follow the gathering as speakers feed the sound through and the large viewing windows enable you to see what is happening in the rest of the building.
Ages 3 and up
Alive Kids start our morning gathering in the main building and then depart to join their allocated group in Hope House, just next door.
Please ‘check in’ at the welcome desk when you arrive in church. Your child will be given a name badge and their group details and you’ll receive information about how and when to drop and collect them from Hope House.
Our Alive Kids have three groups:
Sparklers (ages 3-5yrs)
We have loads of fun together, play games and focus on discipleship as our kids learn from the Bible about how to follow Jesus.
*Please note that in the summer holiday season Alive Kids merges with our main gatherings on Sunday mornings and we take part together in an all-age 1 hour long gathering. The gatherings are adapted from our usual style to help the Kids to join in and feel part of things, as well as our youth and adults. Alive Kids returns to our 10:30 gatherings on 4th September.
During the Summer holidays we take on a different rhythm for gatherings and midweek ministries. We’re lenjoying 10:30 All-Age gatherings during the summer, with a 5 week series on The Kingdom of God – accessible for all ages.
During August (on Wednesdays 3rd, 10th, 17th and 24th) we are excited to be hosting Summer Brunch and Summer Hangout. Find out all the details and booking links from our Alive Summer page.
Little Ones & Brunch
If you have pre-schoolers bring them along to Little Ones & Brunch between 10-11:30am on Wednesdays in term-time. We meet in Hope House hall for play, food and time together.
Sign up is available here for upcoming sessions – we’ll return in mid-September!
Check back here and on the church calendar nearer the time for details and booking.
