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.

Due to the current Covid 19 restrictions we are unable to hold in-person Kids Church meetings inside. Click below for up to date service information. We will resume our in-person Kids programme as soon as we can.

Service Information

Kids Church

From 9th May, alongside the Ashington 11, we will be offering spaces to a small ‘bubble’ of 15 children for a small in-person Kids Church which will be hosted outside. Initially we will be opening this to those in years 3, 4, 5 & 6 (Legends age group!). This will be running from 10:30am until the end of the service. Please sign up on the ‘Sunday Services’ event page.

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 (services currently suspended during lockdown). 

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.
