During our 11am Sunday service, we run a Sunday School and supervised Crèche for children up to 10 years old. Do come and join us as we learn about Jesus from the Bible. We take seriously teaching the Bible to all ages at an appropriate level and with lots of fun and interaction!
The children stay in the service for the first ten minutes and are then taken over to their groups in the Museum of London Docklands next door to the Barge. Parents can stay with them if they like, until they are settled, but are welcome then to rejoin the service.
Children aged 0-2 are looked after in the Crèche, where there are age-appropriate toys prov ided. The older children can listen to a true story from the Bible, sing some Christian songs, say a prayer and do a simple craft to help them learn about Jesus.
Children aged 3-10 have a Bible talk and time of singing altogether, and then split into age-specific groups to learn more about the day’s Bible passage and pray. They learn through discussion, memory verses, crafts and games that all link into the teaching point of the day.
Here at the Barge, we take Safeguarding of children seriously. We have two Safeguarding Officers, Yulian Margaretha and Fiona Robb, and a Children’s Champion, Lidia Jung. They can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or just catch one of them after the service.
To ensure we offer the best possible care for the children, we have adopted the Safeguarding in the Diocese of London Policy Document.
