When’s it on?
The junior church at LBC runs each week during the 11.00am service. Following the worship time the children and young people leave to go to their classes.
Who can go?
In term time the junior church is split into 5 age groups:
- Primary 1 and 2
- Primary 3 and 4
- Primary 5, 6 and 7
And on the first Sunday of the month we hold Super Sunday where all classes from Preschool to Primary 7 join together to have a mini service where we recap on the learning from the previous month and enjoy games, songs and prayer time.
In the school holidays junior church runs, in a more informal format for 3-11 yrs.
Who runs junior church?
At the present time there are 10 leaders and 4 helpers. The team have different gifts, abilities and styles of teaching but our aim is the same: to share the love of Jesus with the children, help them understand their Bible better, encourage them to grow in their faith and live their lives for God.
What do we do?
We use age appropriate activities including games, drama, discussion, crafts etc. to explore the Bible in a way that is relevant to children and young people. We are currently basing many of our lessons on the popular online, Bible based resource, Urban Saints. More information on urban saints can be found at www.urbansaints.org/energize.
The children participate in the main service several times a year and show the congregation what they have been learning. We also try to provide some fun activities throughout the year so that the families of the junior church children can get to know one another better.
