Here at BTC we believe that every child can have a growing relationship with Jesus, and BTC Kids provides a fun and safe environment for children from babies through to year 6 to encounter Jesus in a creative and relevant way.
During the COVID-19 crisis, the BTC Kids have been resourcing our families with suggested activities that can be done together to help children encounter God during this unprecedented time. Please see ideas below to help you find something that will work for your family as you seek to engage with God's word together in new ways. If you have any queries, thoughts or suggestions, please do get in touch with us: [email protected].
BTC Kids at the Building
New from May 2021! BTC Kids is back running Sunday morning sessions from 10am upstairs in K1 while the service in the main hall is taking place.
There is currently space for 15 children in school years Reception to Year 6 to attend each week. We ask that parents book '1 Place in BTC Kids' for each child when booking in to attend church.
Children are still very welcome to remain in the service if parents prefer or if all the BTC kids places are full at the time of booking.
We also hope to reopen Foundations for the under 5's soon too.
Please keep reading for more about our work with the children on Sunday mornings during more normal times of meeting together at the church building.
FOUNDATIONS - 0-4 years
Our youngest members of the church family enjoy a fun space dedicated to help them meet Jesus. The children have a specially created programme of activities based around a monthly theme from the Bible.
The team open the doors at around 10:30am, and your children are welcome in the main hall for the first part of the main service which starts at 10am. We will check in your children at 10:30am and you will need to collect them at the end of the service.
A typical morning will include time for free play, a Bible story while the children enjoy a drink and a biscuit, a craft or activity to reinforce our Bible theme, and time to praise and pray together.
Our team is committed to serving parents, babies, toddlers and preschoolers to help establish the foundations for faith.
FLAME, FUSION & FORTITUDE - Reception-Year 6
BTC Kids for primary school aged children takes place in our dedicated upstairs space. Each morning includes a service created to enable the children to build relationship with Jesus and with each other, through a programme of games and activities, worship, Bible teaching and group discussion. The BTC Kids team passionately believe that every child can encounter Jesus and be impacted by his good news.
We start at 9:50am once check-in opens in the hallway entrance of the church. Parents will need to collect their children at the end of the service by heading upstairs.
From 9:50am the children meet all together, and are able to catch up over a social time with games and activities, building their friendships with each other and the team. Our service then includes lively worship, and age-appropriate teaching which could include videos, drama and even science experiments! From 11am the children split into their specific age groups (Flame: Reception-Year 2, Fusion: Years 3-4, and Fortitude: Years 5-6) for snacks, discussion, prayer and encouragement, before returning together.
All of our BTC Kids teams have up-to-date DBS certificates enabling them to work safely wth children.
