Helping children to grow in Christian faith, understanding and maturity is very important to us at the Waterfront Churches, and there are a number of activities aimed specially at children.
Our children’s and youth worker Mirin Niekirk oversees the team of volunteers who run the various children’s groups and activities. All the team are DBS checked and safeguarding trained.
All Sunday groups happen at Holy Trinity church, and are aimed at children aged 3-11.
The children usually look at the same part of the Bible as the adults, in order that we are all thinking and learning the same lessons. Children’s groups often involve creative activities, games, songs and visual learning as well as Bible reading and discussion. Children will be brought back into the service before the end (or for communion on the first and third Sundays of the month)
Kids Rock is a club aimed at primary school children which meets every Wednesday during term time at St Luke’s Church hall, on Cliff Lane, opposite the primary school. It starts at 3:30 and finishes at 5pm. Parents and carers are welcome to stay to see what we do and learn with their children if they’d like. All the team are DBS checked and safeguarding trained.
We would welcome a donation of 50p per child (max £1 per family) per session. For more info contact Nicola Rout 01473 727774 or find us at Kids Rock on Facebook!

Grapevine meets in St Luke’s Church hall on Cliff Lane, opposite the primary school, every Wednesday morning from 10-11:30 during school term times and is for babies and toddlers to enjoy with their parents or carers.

Lambs is a fun filled toddler group for 0-4 years old and their parents or carers. The group meets every Friday during term time from 10-11:30am in the church hall. It’s designed to be a great space to play, socialise and learn more about Jesus. The session is loosely structured around a story, singing, craft activities, playing, a snack and of course a well-deserved cup of tea for the adults. So come along to join in the fun!
