St John’s Children (SJC) is a vital part of our church community and works to serve our youngest members! We have a large children's church that meets in The Warehouse on a Sunday morning, as well as a number of different weekly and annual activities.
Our vision is to give every child the opportunity to grow and develop their own faith. We want every child to know how loved they are by God and to choose to have a personal relationship with Him.
We welcome all children (aged 0-11) and believe we should have an integrated community where we accept each other’s differences. We aim to work with parents to have any child with additional needs supported by our volunteers in all of our activities.
SJC is jointly led by a core team consisting of Kamila Stefanik, Lee Herdman, Ilse Bredenoord, Roseanna Shefford and Claire Stevens. They are supported by a team of Children’s Interns and over 70 volunteers.
All our team are DBS checked.
WHAT WE DO
We are passionate about integrating our children into the wider family of the church and so we begin our Sunday in church for family worship before moving across to The Warehouse where children will meet in their age groups for age appropriate teaching, worship, prayer, games, crafts and freeplay each week.

DISCOVER & LIGHT PARTY
DISCOVER is a fun time we spend together during the school holidays. Each time we choose a theme to explore together through craft, games and messy fun. Discover is for any children in the community, so we love it if children outside of SJC come along too. Our theme this time is Discover the Olympics. More details HERE.
Our next DISCOVER is on 28-30 October followed by our LIGHT PARTY (alternative to Halloween) on 31 October. More details of our Light Party are HERE.
