Children’s Church

Sunday Church – After-School Clubs – Holiday Clubs

At Jersey Baptist Church our hope is that families flourish, younger children are nurtured and older children mature into the young people God made them to be.
Children are an integral part of our Church family. We are well used to having children involved in all that we do, and enjoy the informality and warmth that they bring. Our prayer is that from birth to adulthood, there is a place where any child or young person will be made to feel welcome and valued. We hope amongst the many activities and groups happening on Sundays, and at other times, each child will find for themselves a highlight of their week.

Sundays, 10.00am

Action Songs – Bible Time – Games – Crafts – Friends – Snacks

Every Sunday, children and their families have an opportunity to learn about the hope we have in Jesus Christ.
Children are important to us, so we’ve created a place for them to learn about Jesus on their level. Every Sunday all children experience safe, age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way.

How it works on a Sunday Morning


All children join their parents for the first part of our Sunday morning gathering.

Splashers (pre-school)
Children should be dropped off at the Splashers room upstairs for sign in and pick up.  Any children new to Splashers please register your child with the team before returning to the service downstairs.

Dippers, Divers & Surfers (primary school)

Children will head to their groups with their leaders. Dippers & Divers children (i.e. Reception to school year 4) can head directly to the upper hall where they will be checked-in.  Surfers gather outside and wait for their leaders to accompany them to the Life Centre also on Vauxhall Street.  Any Surfers arriving late should be accompanied by a parent to the upstairs room in the Life  Centre where Surfers meet.


All school-age children are to be collected from the hall immediately after the service, from which time they become their parents responsibility.


Youth (Secondary school)

Drop off/Registration – Young people will be accompanied by their leaders to the life centre at the appropriate part in the church service.

Pick up –  leaders to bring the young people back to the church after the session to make their way back to parent(s).

Our Sunday Youth Programme follows this pattern each month:

1st Sunday – In the main service with a crib sheet to fill in during sermon.

2nd Sunday – Youth Session (Life Centre)

3rd Sunday – Youth Session (Life Centre)

4th Sunday – Youth Session (Life Centre)

5th Sunday – Breakfast Club (Life Centre)



We take the safeguarding of the young people at our church very seriously. Our Safeguarding policy is available on request. We partner with thirtyone:eight ( the leading independent Christian charity providing professional advice, training, support and resources in all areas of safeguarding and child protection.
