As every child is important to God, at CtL we take the care of children very seriously, no matter what their religious or personal background may be. All are welcome at CtL. One of the few times we see the strength of Jesus' care for children is when he used pretty strong language towards his own followers when they were getting in the way of children who wanted to see Jesus. The Bible also says that both young and old alike will see the things of God and be blessed by God.
We take Safeguarding and welfare of children seriously as we want all to have a positive experience. Therefore, all those who work with children will be interviewed with regards to suitability to work with children, references taken and DBS (the old CRB) checks taken.
We run a Sunday 10.00 am Kids club which is aimed at primary school aged children and includes Bible stories, games, videos, arts and crafts, friendship and fun.
Teddies is a regular baby and toddler group, started by members of the church and, for many years, run by them. This now runs on Thursdays (term time only) from 11.00 am to 1.00 pm in the Community Centre Social hall attached to the church, with arts and crafts, stories and songs, fruit and drinks for the children and lots of fun.
