Youth & Children

One of our most important roles in church is to invest in the lives of our young people
both in their spiritual and every day lives.
QRBC offers young people a versatile and relevant programme of events both on a Sunday and midweek.

    Sunday Club

    For children in school years Reception to Year 5

    On the first three Sundays of the month, our children meet together as a Sunday Club. After joining together as a church family, in opening worship, the young people head downstairs to their group. A team of dedicated adults lead the children in various activities. These always include opening the Bible together and exploring what God has to say and how his words impact our young people and their lives. 

    The children also complete craft activities, play games and get to know one another. 
    It’s a friendly, energetic and welcoming group. 

    Preschool-for children aged 4 and under. 

    On the first three Sundays of the month, the very youngest in our congregation meet together as a group. After the opening worship, our preschoolers go downstairs with their parent or carer. Whilst most parents stay with their children, some of our older preschoolers are happy to be left. 

    The preschool group is led by a team of adults. Every Sunday, the children hear a short Bible story, play a game to do with that story and then complete a craft. The rest of the session is a free play time. It is a chance for our youngest children to get to know each other and for the parents to socialise too. 

    The group is very nurturing, gentle and friendly.
