We are committed to presenting and teaching the Christian faith, in a relevant and enjoyable way, for children and young people of all ages.
Our vision is to be a community where we can love and support our children, young people and their families beyond just a Sunday.
Our heart is to create an environment where children and young people can build an intimate relationship with God, connect with him and hear his voice, so they are able to discover and show their ‘true colours’. We want to help each young person grow into someone who will love God; love and serve others and the community; introduce others to Jesus and live in the freedom and fulfilment God intended us to live in.
True Colours Crèche On the 1st and 3rd Sunday of every month there is a crèche area provided for under 3's, for parents to use with their children , within the main service.
Creative Worship We have a creative worship area for anyone in the church to use, with a range of resources including flags and ribbons. Many of the children and young people enjoy engaging with creative worship.
True Colours Crew and Youth During True Colours sessions, children have the opportunity to relate to each other and have fun playing games, thinking about God and praying for each other. Most of the children/young people who join these sessions are from Crew (primary school age 4+) but our Youth (Secondary School) are welcome and do sometimes join too or have alternative activities provided. We will update parents when these sessions will run.
For more information or to have a chat about any aspect of our Youth and Children's work, contact our Youth and Children's team on 01275 344954 or e-mail them via the website link.
We believe we have a responsibility to nurture and care for every child and young person who is part of True Colours. We have procedures and policies in place to try to ensure that this is the case, and encourage ongoing discussion about our duty of care. We follow the procedures laid out in the Safeguarding Policy and Safe Working Guidance. Every team member is also DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked and receives safeguarding training.
We love Living Waters because...
It was great finding a church where people worshipped passionately, included children and supported even young children to follow God.
