Youth and Children are a very important part of the life of Emmanuel Church, Bicester
Mustard Seeds: (0-2 years old). There are lots of toys available in the downstairs Community Room and the group is staffed by two volunteers. Parents can stay if they want to and sometimes there is an opportunity for a bible story, activity or song, depending on the age of the children present.
Groups for older children follow a mixed programme of worship, story and teaching, games, activities and prayer suitable for their age group. All leaders and helpers have a DBS check and adapt the session to the age and mix of the children present.
Cherry Blossom: (Pre-school and Foundation). Meets in the upstairs lounge.
Willows: (Years 1-2). Meets in meeting room 1 upstairs.
Silver Birches: (Years 3-6). Meet in Bure Park School, so assemble at the front door and walk over together.
The Grid: (Years 7 upwards). Each week this group looks at the same topic as the adults in church, but in a way relevant to their age. They meet upstairs in Meeting Room 2.
After School Club
The Monday after school club meets from 3.10 to 4.15 and is for school years 4, 5 and 6. There is an opportunity to play games, eat biscuits, watch videos and learn about God.
