The Sunday family service begins at 9:30am during term time and 10:30am during the Cambridge University holidays. As families arrive at church, children are registered and after a short time of all-age worship, children leave for their groups. When the service has finished, parents are asked to collect their children.
There are six fun groups (see the tabs for more information):
Sunbeams Crèche (0-18 months)
Blast Off (18 months - Age 3)
Rockets (Ages 3-4) and Comets (Years 1-2)
Shooting Stars (Years 3-4) and Galaxies (Years 5-6)
Before attending a group, parents are asked to complete a permission form. This helps us to keep track of who is attending each group and also enables us to contact you about special events in the Children’s Church calendar. These forms are available from a member of staff on Sunday mornings or you can download one.
If you would like more information about our child protection policies, please feel free to visit our Safeguarding page, where you can download and read our policies and best practice guidelines.
The Sunbeams Crèche currently meets in the cabin behind All Saints' church. Go to the back of the church and turn left, through the large wooden door and down a couple of steps (pushchairs can be left at the back of the church). The cabin is immediately on your left.
This space has been designed to provide a relaxing and comfortable place for young babies, whilst the service is taking place next door. Mums are also welcome to use this room for feeding during the service. An audio link to the Church relays the sermon to the crèche building, so you don't have to miss out on the teaching while using this space.
When children are aged 18 months old and are walking confidently, they move up to ‘Blast Off’ which is currently meeting in Westcott House. There is time for free play, play dough modelling and bubbles! We normally end the session with action songs, a short story from the Bible and rice cakes!
Rockets (ages 3-4) and Comets (school years 1-2) meet at Stafford House, on Round Church Street, during the Transform project. Children can learn stories from the Bible and do crafts, and there is also space for games and challenges!
Shooting Stars (school years 3-4) and Galaxies (school years 5-6) meet their leaders in the Church Building before heading to Stafford House on Round Church Street. Both groups then join together for games before heading to their own break out rooms to read about the Bible and pray for each other. At the end of the morning, both groups are brought back together to be collected by parents.
