At TLC we place a strong emphasis on kids and youth, we believe that they matter just as much to God as adults do and are a valued part of our community. We partner with parents to help children develop a faith that lasts them a lifetime. Our dedicated volunteers work hard to make TLC Kids a happy place where all kids are noticed and cared for. All child services last the duration of your adult church experience.
For babies aged 0 -2 years 9 months, there is a fully supervised crèche room where children can be left for the duration of the service. This room is also available for parents who do not wish to leave their children, to care for them during the adult experience and has a live video link.
When a child is eligible to begin pre-school, they will move on to a more structured programme of play, song, stories and craft all reinforcing 3 truths– God made me, God love me, Jesus wants to be my friend forever.
Primary 1 – 3 (Key Stage 1) will enjoy an exciting, energetic and creative programmes where we build on the truths learnt in Explorers by adding 3 more – I will trust God no matter what, I will make wise choices and I will treat others the way I want to be treated.
Primary 4 -7 (Key Stage 2) children will continue the programme of the Adventurers, by offering them an opportunity to build authentic friendship through connect time, an age appropriate worship experience, relevant bible teaching and small group time to explore and apply the teaching to their lives, all at a slightly more mature level.
Fusion is the group for 11-16 year olds who meet to have their own age appropriate worship experience and social times on Friday nights. We believe that Sundays at TLC can be just as helpful and relevant to the teenagers as they are to adults, so Fusion stay in the main service, though we encourage them to sit together on a Sunday morning to help further build friendships.
