Hope Kids


'We know that our kids are essential in Hope Church. They bring joy, laughter and simplicity to our family. We believe that a child is never too young to connect with God and try to create a space for the kids to have fun together, learn about Jesus and experience his love for them' 
Ruth Jackman, Hope Kids Co-ordinator 

Hope Kids is our weekly Sunday kids work for children aged 6 months to 11 years. It is run by enthusiastic members of Hope Church who are well trained and enjoy looking after children. We always aim to make Hope Kids as fun as possible. Every week is different from the last as we include many activities, stories and songs about Jesus.

We appreciate that parents will have a number of questions relating to our kids work. With this in mind, we hope you find the following answers helpful: 

"How do I register my child for Hope Kids?"

Please talk to the worker at the Hope Kids registration table before the start of the meeting. They will make a note of your contact details and any important information you provide us with. They will then assign your child to a suitable session, and will use an online system (ChurchSuite) to register your child. You will be given a four digit random number which you will need to bring when you collect your child at the end of the session. 

"Who will be looking after my child?"

Our volunteer staff are all committed members of Hope. They have regular DBS checks and training sessions, and choose to take care of our young people because they love kids and enjoy having fun with them.

"What kind of activities will my child be doing?"

  We provide an entertaining mix of learning activities, art, craft, stories and drama, games and singing, all designed to teach biblical truths in a fun way and to help them to engage with God themselves.

"Do you have a child protection policy?" 

Yes. The welfare of children is our highest priority. Bearing this in mind, we have gone above and beyond what the law requires in terms of child safety. You can view our Child Protection policy here.
