We Love Children and Youth at St Barnabas Church Winchester!
Babies, children and young people are SO welcome at St Barnabas! We hope it’s the best hour of their lives each week!
We have a range of groups children and young people can enjoy throughout our 10:45 Sunday morning service. Our trained, DBS checked volunteers are on hand to welcome your child whatever their age. All children come into the church for the beginning of the service to join in songs. They then head off to their groups after ten minutes.
A few weeks of the term children and young people join in tailored services for children with the adults and, also from time to time all the groups meet together as one for fun, games and crafts. (See what’s on this term below)
Springs is for children up to 1-year-old. We provide a lovely space with age appropriate toys for babies to enjoy in the foyer of the church. Parents and carers can relax with their little ones which has chairs, mats and baby toys – as well as space for feeding. A live feed is set up so parents and carers don’t miss out on the great worship and teaching.
Streams is for children that are 1-4 years old in the Fromland Room. Our DBS checked volunteers are on hand to welcome your child, have fun and play together with age appropriate toys. A lovely toddler and preschool room is set up each week with crafts, activities and games. They have so much fun learning about God through story, play and song.
Rivers is for children in reception to school year 5 in the main hall. We provide a fun space for children to meet with God, play games, develop friendships and explore faith, prayer and the bible.
Rapids is for young people in school years 6 and upwards. We aim to create a safe space and environment where young people can explore their faith, meet God for themselves, start to explore their gifting and ask big life questions.
