Children & Youth 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 2½ and 15.

The children stay in for the first 15 minutes of the service and then head off to their groups. Follow the crowd and one of the stewards or children's workers will point you in the right direction. 

The children are split into the following groups:

  • Little Fishes age 2½ - 5. 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! 

  • Groups for school years 1 - 6. 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.

  • Pathfinders for young people in school years 7 - 9. Please join this group to catch up together, play some games and hear what God has to say to us today.
