As with adults’ church, Children’s Church is online every week on a Sunday morning on our YouTube channel, and when we are allowed to gather in person, children’s church will also gather. When your cell group is coming to church, your children can come to children’s church too. We also have a few spots open for those who are not in cell groups. For the time being, all children aged 3 till 12 will meet in the classrooms off the quad.
Regardless of whether your children participate in the online or in-person service, the heart behind our ministry and programmes is to come alongside you as parents to disciple your children. Children need a little help from you and us to figure out how, exactly, to grow spiritually.
To help a child grow spiritually, teach them to spend time with God, spend time with others, use their gifts, share their story and be obedient to whatever Jesus tells them.
Our weekly lessons will always challenge the children with the questions: So what? Now what?
This is cultivating a culture of application and obedience, and we want to walk with our children in growing in obedience and love towards God.
On the first Sunday of every month, we will have an interactive zoom service. We’ve seen incredible growth in the children who use this platform, especially during times of social distancing. Face to Face is where real discipleship takes place. Please encourage your children at home to join in. Those at church will connect with those at home.
Our crew is still actively involved in our ministry. This is a great place of belonging, serving and discipleship for any young person Grade 7 and older.
This year we are following the Grow Curriculum. Download the Grow app on your phone for discipleship discussions you can engage with your children at home:
Also, here is a link to the ESCC Kids Resources folder where you can find activities and colouring sheets for each teaching series we will be doing.
Babies and Toddlers 0-36 months
There is a comfortable, sound-proof room at the back of the hall for parents & their babies aged 0 to 18 months.
This is a quiet room where parents can listen to the sermon whilst their child(ren) play quietly. There is an audio and visual feed into the room.
To volunteer in in this ministry, or for any further information, please contact Zendre.
Please note that all children will need to be signed in and out by the same parent or guardian. All children 6 years and older must wear a mask to in-person gatherings.
