Children on Sunday mornings

At ChristChurch Harpenden we are committed to keeping your children safe and operate a child protection policy, developed in line with The Churches Child Protection Advisory Service.

The Young People @ ChristChurch programme (or YP@C) provides children's groups on a Sunday morning during the service for children between the ages of 2 ½ and 15. The children stay in for the first part of the service and then go out with their parents to their groups when indicated by the person leading the service. This is split into the following groups:

  • Little Fishes – 2 ½ to 5 (at 9.30am service only). The preschool kids love Little Fishes. There are stories sometimes acted out by the kids using props or puppets. The message is reinforced with games, craft, memory verses. There's also singing, dancing praise and prayer. You can be sure that your little ones will have a great time at Little Fishes, and come out with plenty to show and tell you! Please note that "Little Fishes" runs only at the 9.30 service on the days when two morning services are run.

  • Groups for school years 1-6 (at both services). The groups are split by school years. Yrs 1&2, 3&4, 5&6 all do a programme of bible based activities, learning about God's plan for his world and his people through stories, games and other activities. The aim is to deliver a message that is relevant to their own experience of school and family life.

  • Groups for young people in school years 7-10 (at 11.15am service only). Please join this group to catch up together, play some games and hear what God has to say to us today.

These groups take place in the classrooms. Follow someone who looks like they know where they're going, or ask a steward!
