We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done. Psalm 78:4
Cornerstone has an extensive ministry to children with many under 11s involved in Sunday and midweek groups. It is our aspiration that every child within a group at Cornerstone will feel safe, known and cared for as we strive to teach the bible in an interesting and age appropriate way.
We have a purpose built crèche facility at Cornerstone which provides care for 0-3 year-olds in a safe, loving and fun environment. The crèche is open from 5 minutes before the service until the end of the service and children are collected during the final song. Crèche is staffed by a team of very committed volunteers who are recognisable by their green t-shirts!
Igniter Praise runs on the third Sunday of each month during term time, and is for 7-11 year-olds (junior-aged children). Igniter Praise is led by the Ignite Team and as such, contains much of the same fun and games - as well as a spiritually challenging element. Igniter Praise aims to fill the gap between Ignite and church and is particularly accessible for children who attend Ignite on a Friday evening but whose families don't regularly come to church on a Sunday morning.
This is the name we give to our various groups for our 3s-11s on a Sunday morning. For the first part of both morning services the whole church family remains together in the main auditorium. Our children leave for their various groups midway through the service and are collected immediately after the final song. We are committed to providing good quality, age appropriate bible teaching as well as having fun and encouraging friendships along the way. Our groups are lead by our specially trained children's team.
Tots and Toys
Tots and Toys is a group for pre-school children and their adults and meets every Thursday morning during school term time from 9.45am to 11.30am. You are warmly invited to join us for a time of play, craft activities, Bible stories, singing and refreshments (£1 per family).
Dad Club meets once a month (on the 2nd Saturday) from 9:30-11am. There are bacon butties, tea, coffee, play and a short interactive Bible story. The cost is £1 per family and the group is for both church and non-church dads with their pre-school children.
Ignite is a group for junior school age children (7-11 year olds) and meets on alternate Fridays from 6.00 - 7.15pm, please see the term card for dates. Ignite is lead by a very enthusiatic and dedicated team, and is about fun, friendship and finding out more about God! Many of the relevantly aged children from Cornerstone come along and many bring friends from school, we warmly welcome children who don’t normally attend Cornerstone.
I love working with young people because they have so much energy and aren't afraid of asking difficult questions
