Children's Ministry


Children absorb the world around them like a sponge - the years between the ages of 5 to 11 are when personality really starts to develop and the indications for their future become apparent. At these impressionable ages it is a time when you want them to learn things that will give them a good moral grounding in their behaviour and compassion towards others. Values that will help develop them into good and valuable members of society.

Sunday Club
On a normal Sunday, children willl meet with the church family in the main service for about half an hour before going to their own age-appropriate groups. Sunday Club is full of fun, craft, drama and all the stuff children love to do which will help them learn about Jesus.

Gilgal's first priority is always your child's safety and well-being, so without exception supervision of children in undertaken by responsible adults who have ALL been Advanced DBS checked and who are governed by our Safegarding Policy.

Biblical Teaching

Sunday Club

With the exception of our Family Services, children only attend the first half hour of Sunday Services, after which point they go out to Sunday Club. They spend the rest of the service time under the supervision of responsible adults who are skilled in Bible teaching and arts and crafts. Some Sundays may also be spent playing games to develop social skills.

All our responsible adults are Advanced DBS checked and governed by our Safeguarding Policy.
