Children

Children

All of our Children's groups are safe experiences, with age-appropriate environments where the Bible is taught in a creative and relevant way - all with the purpose of helping children to follow Jesus

We have children's provision for all ages on Sunday mornings as well as on a Friday night for older children.

We would love to see you and your family visit our Children's groups either on a Sunday or Friday. Join the fun and experience a world where children meet Jesus on their level!

Here's some more information about each group that runs:



CRECHE (0-2 years)

What is Creche?

We are passionate about serving our families here at The Foundry Church and appreciate how hard it can be sometimes to keep babies and young children occupied during our Sunday services.

For your comfort and support, we have made available a creche facility filled with a variety of toys and a baby changing area. The room also includes a live video feed to everything happening in our Main Arena...so you don't have to miss a thing!

When and where?

Our creche is located in Meeting Room 1 and available from 10:30am during the morning service on a Sunday. Please note it is a non-supervised room so parents are responsible for their children at all times.



FUNHOUSE (3-4 years)

Funhouse is the name of our Sunday morning programme available to children ages 3 - 4 years.

In Funhouse our aim is to create the right atmosphere and balance so while we have fun, we also encourage children to worship Jesus and focus on Him. 



FUNHOUSE (5-10 years)

Funhouse is the name of our Sunday morning programme available to children ages 5 - 10 years.

In Funhouse our aim is to create the right atmosphere and balance so while we have fun, we also encourage children to worship Jesus and focus on Him.

When is Funhouse?

Funhouse begins at approximately 11:10am each Sunday, children will go out to Funhouse shortly after our time of worship. A mixture of songs, stories, crazy games, craft and much more will ensure your child stays engaged and feels right at home. Funhouse finishes at 12:15pm.

Your first visit!

When you first arrive, look out for our Information Desk where one of our volunteers is waiting to meet you. This is where you can check your child into our database system. Our guest house will show you where everything happens if it's your first time. 

How Check-In works

Your child's safety is our priority. Upon arrival our check-in team (at the Information Desk) will look for your child's details on our database. If it is your first time then we will ask you to fill out a general information and parent/guardian details form. 

Once your child is on our system we can check them in. At this point you will receive a wristband with a unique identification code. You will need to wear the wristband throughout the service. After the service, you will return to your child's room and show your wristband in order for your child to be released back to you. 

In the event that we need to contact you during the service, your child's identification code will appear on the screen in the main arena. We ask that you exit the main area immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child's room. 

THE JOURNEY HOME

It's our aim to help your children follow Jesus. We want to make our teaching accessible and relevant to their age. On your way home, ask your child questions like, "Did you have fun?" and "What did you learn today?" We want every child to have a positive answer to these two questions, every week!



FKz (5-10 years)

FKz (which is just a quick way of saying Foundry Kids!) is the name of our Friday night programme that happens during term time 6:00 - 7:30pm for children of primary school age. 

FKz is all about fun! With crazy games, stories and songs your child is in for a great night. 

We also have a Community Cafe at FKz. This runs from 5 - 7:30pm, the purpose of the cafe is to help make Friday nights work that little bit easier for families. So why not book in for some food this Friday? You can find out more about the cafe and book in for food here.


SAFETY

In all of our children's groups safety is our priority. We make sure each room that is used is safe in its layout and equipment. All of our volunteers are screened with an application process and a DBS is carried out, as well as ongoing child protection training. Our check-in system mentioned above, is designed to ensure, that only the parent/guardian who checks their child in, is able to collect their child with the corresponding wristband ID number. 

CONSENT FORMS

Save yourself some time when you first visit by filling out the general information and parent/guardian consent forms before you arrive. Please complete the general information form for each child that will be attending. Only one parent/guardian consent form is needed per household.
