Children & Families

We love kids here at LIFEHOUSE! We value children and see them as a really important part of family life.  We have a number of different programmes and events that run on a weekly and quarterly basis.

On a Sunday, children are encouraged to take part in our family worship before they go to their groups. All groups can be found on the first and second floors of the church building just to the left of the main entrance.

Boom! (2-6yrs) and Impact! (6-12yrs)

At Boom! & Impact! the kids get to make even more noise, have even more fun and learn about Jesus and the bible in an exciting and creative environment. Each group has an amazing team of people who are dedicated to making our kids feel valued, and important and helping them to connect with God.

Sparkles (0-2yrs)

Sparkles is an environment we have created for parents with babies, situated in the lounge area of the church. There is a space equipped for all your needs including a live video and audio feed from the service, so you won’t miss a thing. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available too.

Poppets

Poppets Baby & Toddler Group (led by Jo Curtis) is hosted by LIFEHOUSE each Thursday morning during school term time. The cost is £1.50 for the first child and adult, and 50p for each additional child or adult.

Running from 10:00am til 11:30am, the time is packed with a wide range of activities for you and your child, whether you’re a parent, grandparent or carer.

Our main room is set out with all sorts of toys, from things like puzzles that promote learning and concentration, to toys that are just plain fun like the trikes and slides! There’s a separate area in this room for babies, with bouncy chairs and soft toys. Seating is set up around the room so that the grown-ups can take a well-earned break and have a natter with friends, while still being able to keep an eye out for the children.

If your child fancies getting creative, or maybe just going somewhere a little quieter, our art and craft area is in an adjacent room. You’re welcome to move between the two areas at any time.

The children will get a healthy snack and a drink mid-way through the morning, while the adults take a break with coffee and cake!

The morning will finishes off with a story and song time.

We asked some people why they like coming to Poppets, and here’s what they said…

“Welcoming, friendly, a lovely atmosphere”
“I’ve made friends here. The lovely team”
“Friendly, so many toys, being able to play safely”
“Cake!”

We’d love to meet you too, so please join us on a Thursday morning. If you’d like some more information first, please email us at poppets@wearelifehouse.org or call the LIFEHOUSE church centre on (01905) 22234.
