We are passionate about seeing children encounter the love of Father God, journeying with Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit and transforming the lives of everyone they meet.

Kids Church

Aimed at children aged 5-11

A mix of worship, opening the bible, drama, crafts, games, building community, prayer, encountering Father, and fun!

9 am & 11am Sundays, Ashington Community Centre

Kids Church is now running twice on a Sunday morning in Ashington Community Centre. Come and be part of this new adventure!

Running alongside our 9am and 11am services in the parish, you can choose to sign up to either Kids at the 9 or Kids at the 11.  Sessions will be identical so pick the one that suits you best.

Following Diocesan guidelines, kids will need to commit to coming to the same Kids Church option every week until Christmas. They will be put into bubbles/teams and will need to remain in the same bubbles/teams every week. This will be the same for our Kids Church Team.


Registration:

Timings for Kids Church will start earlier and finish later to allow those who are attending the 9am and 11am Ashington or Washington Services to drop off their kids before going to their chosen service within the parish.

  • The 9am services – Kids check in from 8:40am with pick up at 10:15am.
  • The 11am services – Kids check in from 10:45am with pick up at 12:15pm.
  • Do get in contact with Nick or Holly (Heads of Kids) if you have any questions or queries regarding reopening of Kids Church.

Washington Young Families Service

Aimed at children aged 0-5

9-10am Sundays, Washington Church

Under national guidelines we are not allowed to offer creche ministry but we are experimenting by starting a brand new ‘Young Families Service’.  Whilst this hour-long service will be aimed at families with children aged 0-5, other children and family members are so welcome also.

In addition, any or all of the adult services at either church are open and welcoming to young families.
