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 Elza de Bruin: She’d be delighted to hear from you.

Holy Week and Easter 2024

On Palm Sunday we made an Easter Garden as we thought about the journey that Jesus made during Holy Week.

On Easter Day we rolled back the stone in front of the tomb as we celebrated that Jesus was Risen!

We helped to create a gift for those members of the congregation who we wanted to let know we were thinking of them.

One Sunday we created colourful crosses which then hung in the Hub for all to admire for a few weeks. As Easter weekend approached the pastoral care group arranged for some plants to be delivered and then our crosses were attached to the plants ready to decorate the church steps on Easter Day. They were then collected by the Elders and delivered to their new owners.

Out of sight is definitely not out of mind here at Downing Place URC.

Our service for All Ages on Sunday 10th September led by our minister, the Reverend Nigel Uden.  To watch a recording of the service, please click on the video above.

We hope you can join us at a service soon.
