Sunday Mornings @ CBC
CBC Creche 0-3 years
During our Sunday morning service our creche is open for parents to drop off their young ones. They will be well looked after by our excellent team of helpers and there is plenty for them to do, whether it is playing with toys, singing songs or colouring in.
Its really great that I know my daughter is being looked after and is having a great time, so that I can engage with the church service.
Every Sunday morning feels like a party!
CBC Kids 3-11 Years
Our children stay with us for the first part of the service as we have an All-Age activity, following which the children then attend our Junior Church. Here they sing songs, play games, learn stories from the Bible and make many wonderful things to take home. The children stay together for the first part of the session and then they split into their relevant age groups to receive differentiated games, stories and craft. We run 3 Age Groups:
3-4 Years – Explorers
5-7 Years – Discoverers
8-11 Years – Adventurers
Each age range is cared for by our fantastic children’s team. Come along on a Sunday morning to have a great time!
Throughout the Week @ CBC (During Term Time)
Little Seeds – Tuesday Mornings
Our Parent & toddler group takes place on Tuesday mornings between 9.30am- 11.30am, in the church hall. With a very informal, relaxed atmosphere, it’s a great place for mums and dads, grandparents, childminders and carers to meet new people and build a supportive network – after all, raising a young family can sometimes be exhausting and isolating, so it can be a great comfort to have a like-minded friend or two to chat to.
Little ones can play freely with our collection of toys and games, and take part in activities such as craft, singing and puppets. Refreshments are available for attendees of all ages.
Brigades – Friday Evenings
Each week Boy and Girls Brigades works with thousands of young people, many of whom have no other connection with the Church. Today they are working with over 60,000 children & young people in over 1500 companies (groups) in the UK & Republic of Ireland every week.
The Brigades provides a balanced programme of activities for children and young people from 5 to 18 years old. At Canterbury Baptist Church we host Boys and Girls Brigade every Friday here in the church building.
Primary School Age 6:00PM – 7:15PM
Secondary School Age 7:30PM – 9:15PM
There are team games, crafts, cooking, band, sports, camping and more. Cost £1.50 per week
CBC Child Protection
The safety of the children is of utmost importance. To ensure that they are protected, we:
- Register children at the beginning and end of our time together so we know where the children are at all times throughout the morning.
- Ensure that all adults involved in the CBC Kids ministry must have an up to date DBS certificate.
- Our Safeguarding Policy encompasses and extends the guidelines and procedures recommended by the government in the Home Office Code of Practice entitled Safe from Harm, and is updated annually. A copy is kept in the Church Office and can be seen on request.
You can be assured that all children, young people and vulnerable adults will be respected, nurtured and protected while in our care.
If you would like to know anymore about any of the activities that we run for children in our church then please don’t hesitate to contact our Childrens and Youth Worker Charlie Waller
