Children’s Ministry

Sunday morning church groups for children

Children’s Ministry

Our aim is to learn together from the Bible, hear more about Jesus and think about what faith means in our daily life through lots of different and fun activities in smaller groups during the second part of the Sunday morning service. New families are more than welcome to join any time.
 

All church families have support from a serving elder and the Ministers. For further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch with our Children Ministry coordinator Rosemary Johnston: children@downingplaceurc.org She’d be delighted to hear from you.
