I am writing to tell you that in September we are re-launching our children’s work with some very exciting changes. Holland Road is blessed with a great number of children, with around 65 children aged 0-11 coming to church every Sunday morning. They are a fantastic bunch made up of babies, toddlers, pre-schoolers, infants and juniors.
Favourite part of the week
We hope to invest in them so they can grow up to be all God wants them to be. We aim to make church their favourite part of the week, where they can encounter God and grow in faith as they follow Him. We hope that the children feel a part of the church and make lasting friendships with each other.
We are calling the overall ministry to children ‘Discoverers’ but breaking it down in to three main groups. Dinky Discoverers for 0-3 years, Mini Discoverers for 3-5 years, and Mega Discoverers for 5-11 years. These different groups will be a safe and caring environment with tailored age-related activities to help the children thrive and equip the children to live for God. They will include creative storytelling from the Bible, dramas, worship songs, craft, refreshments and a lot of fun too!
We will also have a ‘meet and greet’ team who will be on hand in the foyer to welcome and assist families. They will also give out registration forms, the children’s work safeguarding policy and the parent information booklet, which will have information on each of the specific groups. This team will also be available to show parents around before the service and help make them and the children feel at home.
Finally, if you’re a regular Holland-roader then I want to thank you for your support of the children’s ministry over the years and as we move forward into this exciting new chapter.
