Who are HT Kids?
HT Kids is home for anyone aged 0-11. The vision is to see children grow deeper in their faith, closer in their friendships with each other, and to help them step into all that God has in store for their lives.
How does it work?
Every Sunday, HT Kids runs at the 9.30am service or 10.30am outside of Cambridge University term time - check the Preaching Programme for this Sunday’s service times. On arrival parents/carers take their children to the HT Kids Welcome Desk where they are registered before joining with the whole church for a time of sung worship (including an action song!) before their groups start.
It’s HT’s priority that everyone has a safe and enjoyable time so before attending a group, each parent/carer is asked to complete a permission form which lets the HT Kids Team know of any special needs and enables them to keep in contact with parents and carers. These forms are available on the HT Kids Welcome Desk at the back of church, or can be downloaded below.
How to get involved
The best way to get involved is to come along on a Sunday. You’ll be greeted by the HT Kids team wearing navy blue t-shirts who will tell you everything you need to know for each age group.
Sunbeams (0-18 months)
The Sunbeams Crèche is designed to provide a relaxing and comfortable place for young babies whilst the service is taking place next door. Parents are also welcome to use this room for feeding during the service.
The Sunbeams Crèche is located on the ground floor of the Charles Simeon Centre (just out of the back door of the main church and to the left). Pushchairs can be left at the back of church.
Blast Off (18 months - 3 years)
The Blast Off group enjoys a time of free play and bubbles. The session also includes ‘Diddy Disciples’ - a time of worship and Bible storytelling - and usually ends with an action song and rice cakes!
Rockets (3-4 years old)
Rockets have a chance to learn, hear and talk about stories from the Bible with plenty of crafts and games to play.
Comets (School years 1-2)
Comets, meet with their peer group for games, Bible teaching, small group discussion and prayer.
Shooting Stars & Galaxies (School years 3-6)
Shooting Stars & Galaxies meet with their peer group for games, Bible teaching, small group discussion and prayer.
Throughout the year, HT hosts fun-filled kids and families events and services such as the Light Party, Easter events (with an egg hunt!) and All-Age family services. For more information about upcoming events, visit the Calendar.
