But Jesus said, “Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for of such is the kingdom of heaven.”

Matthew 19v14

Children are very important to us here at Emmanuel Church.

We run a Sunday School for primary school children during our Sunday morning service. Parents are encouraged to stay with under 3-year-olds.

As a church, we believe that the best thing we can do for our children, is to help them understand how wonderful God’s amazing love is for them in Jesus.

In our Sunday School, we tell children Bible stories, sing songs, crafts and other activities, all designed to help children learn about Jesus and enjoy the true stories found in God’s Word.

Each Sunday, children are encouraged to be part of the service. We have a children’s talk before the children go out to Sunday School, where we seek to bring out the wonderful message of the love of God in Jesus in a way that children can understand.

Fun and Games

In school holidays we run a Holiday Bible Club, packed with singing, games, craft activities and stories from the Bible.

The staff working with Children in the Church have had Enhanced DBS Checks.
