We want to see our children live exciting and fulfilled lives. We share our own walk with Jesus with our children and they are very much part of who we are at Oak Grove today. Our prayer is that they will come to know God, experience the love of Jesus and be led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. It is important to us that we also make a difference to children and families in our local community.
Sundays . . .
On a Sunday morning, we run age-specific fun activity groups where children can learn more about Jesus, how to live good lives and how to help others. These are run by leaders who are DBS checked and we have a child protection policy in place. Their sessions last for about ¾ hour during the second half of the service. Children must be signed in and out of their activity. It is not compulsory for children to go to these groups but we hope they will enjoy them!
Community . . .
During the school holidays we often welcome families to Oak Grove Chapel to have lunch and fun – especially if their children normally have free school meals. Many of our community outreach activities help families, such as Foodbank and debt advice. We also run special fun and energetic children’s events at different times and activities for the family. Families are welcome to bring children to different Community Groups (COGS) too.
Schools . . .
We are often involved in sharing our faith in schools including after school clubs, lunch clubs and assemblies. We want to encourage children to think about how Jesus can make a difference today. At times we also work in partnership with youth teams like Youth for Christ to put on special events.
