God cares deeply about people of all ages and the Bible tells us that children not only have a special place in his thinking, but are capable of understanding. At the age of 12, Jesus debates with the scholars, demonstrating his understanding of Old Testament scripture. Not only can children understand, but also we can learn from them!

At Lympne – Teen Tuesday
We meet on Tuesday evenings during term time from 5.30 – 7.30 pm in West Hythe! We start by sharing a meal together (usually pizza) giving everyone time to catch up with all the gossip! Then we introduce the theme by playing games or activities, and explore the Bible in creative and imaginative ways making a link between God’s message and your own world.

Wednesday – Saltwood Toddlers for 0-3’s
Wednesday mornings during term time from 09.30 – 11.15 am in the Lads’ Club, Saltwood. While the toddlers safely play, our adults, which include mums, dads, grandparents, carers and childminders, are able to socialise and have a friendly chat over a cuppa and the opportunity to discuss and compare notes. Then we all come together at snack time, for interactive storytelling and music. On sunny days you will find us having fun in our outside area with our new sandpit and water play area. We finished the summer term with a Teddy Bear’s picnic.
