CHECK OUT THE LATEST EVENTS HAPPENING AT BEACON CHURCH FOR OUR 0-18s!
BOOKING IS REQUIRED FOR OUR FRIDAY NIGHT YOUTH EVENTS
As part of our array of different children’s groups at Beacon Church, we also offer a Creche facility for little ones between the ages of 0-24 months which is located directly next to our 2-4 year Creche and runs after worship until the end of the service. This is a fun, welcoming and safe space filled with a wide range of toys to keep your little ones entertained! Children using this space require a parent/ carer to remain with them. However, there is also a tv screen where the service is live streamed so parents can be with their little ones without missing out on everything going on! You and your little ones are very welcome here!
We meet after the worship in the spacious, Little Acorns Nursery playroom. There is a secure booking in system so you can know that your child will be collected only by you at the end of the service. There's so much to do and fun to be had, with a wide range of resources and activities including opportunity to listen to a story or sing and dance along to praise and worship songs. We are staffed by enthusiastic volunteers who are not only DBS checked but are also sensitive to children's individual needs. This is a wonderful safe environment for your young ones to explore and play while you enjoy the service.
Beacon Kidz is a fun-filled session for children aged between 5 - 10 years. It is staffed by DBS checked volunteers who are passionate about creating a friendly environment for your child and sharing the good news of Jesus! These sessions are held upstairs in our Beacon Kidz room where you can bring your child at 10 minutes before the service begins. Children will be safely signed in and will enjoy an exciting morning of games, crafts, Bible stories and so much more while you can engage in the main service. A tasty snack is also available in Beacon Kidz. We look forward to seeing you there!
Friday Youth takes place on alternate Friday nights during term time. This exciting event is for anyone aged between 11 and 18 years old and runs from 7:30pm - 9:30pm. We meet in the Youth room at Beacon Church and the evening includes games, ‘hang out’ time with friends, a short Bible based teaching time as well as snacks!

We have a fantastic Youth Group for our 11 -14 year olds which is run by our passionate Youth Team. This is a time for our young people to have fun together and learn more about Jesus as well as grow in their walk with Him, learning about the dynamic relevance of God’s Word for today. Our sessions take place on the 1st and 3rd Sundays. We hope you can join us!!
Welcome to our young leadership group for 15 - 18 year olds. This is a time for the older youth to learn key leadership skills and grow in their walk with God. Sessions take place on the 2nd and 4th Sunday each month after worship time in the main service. The young people will be mentored by our Youth leaders and form connections with other young people. We hope to see you there!
