KingsGate Kids

We want to help your family enjoy every part of the Sunday experience.

Our desire is to see a generation of children who love God and are equipped to impact their world; fulfilling their destiny in God.

Each Sunday we provide children’s groups for all ages, and our team are committed to providing a fun, creative, and safe environment where every child can learn about Jesus and experience His love.

Parent & Child Area

We have a Parent & Baby Area with a live video link to the service so you won't miss a thing.

12-36 Months

We provide a safe and happy environment for your children to play, have fun, and experience God’s love. We offer a wide range of toys for play as well as some simple activities, using our ABC curriculum to introduce God’s love to your little ones.

There is always a supervisor and team of helpers on duty, and should your child need you during the service, we are able to alert you. Refreshments are available at each session.

Reception - School Year 1

Through a variety of fun games and group activities, interactive Bible stories, drama, worship, and craft, we encourage each child to learn to develop a relationship with God.

School Years 2 - 6

These are action-packed sessions for children in school years two to six and run during the morning service. We believe that children learn best when having fun! We offer a creative session of worship, interactive prayer, crafts, games, and age-specific teaching. Each session follows our in-house curriculum Passport to Purpose, a 26-week programme which grounds children in foundational Christian principles.

Each child has a group leader who works with them in smaller groups organised by age range. Children are encouraged to attend regularly and bring their Bibles (we use the Good News Bible) and to learn the Word by heart. They earn points along the way with an annual prize-giving and award ceremony. The remaining part of the year we use other theme-based teaching programmes. We also offer opportunities and suggestions for parents and carers to be involved in their child’s learning and spiritual development.

During each session, the children are offered a snack and drink.

It’s fun, you learn about Jesus, you learn about something new each time and you make new friends

Information for parents

KingsGate wants to support you as you seek to support and encourage your children in the love of the God.

REGISTRATION: Child registration takes place within each group. Stewards will be available to help you find the right group for your child. When you arrive for the first time, session leaders will provide you with a registration form to complete; this data is then held on our central database. Each child will be given a sticker to wear during the session: to identify them by name, to alert workers to any allergy information, and to provide a register in the event of a fire. Parents are also given a sticker, which they are asked to present when returning to collect their child. Workers are asked not to allow children to go with anyone other than the person with the sticker. If the sticker has been lost, then please talk with the session leader.

EXTRA NEEDS: KingsGate seeks to support children with extra needs. Please identify extra needs on your registration forms to help the team care for your child.

PROTECTION POLICY: Every member of the Children’s Ministry Team has an enhanced disclosure check through the Disclosure and Barring Service.
