Join us on Sunday mornings for all our fun filled ministries for Youth and Children.

Family Ministries Update

Due to government guidelines surrounding social distancing, our regular Sunday morning family ministries are not currently meeting. Instead, each Sunday we are gathering in our own homes at 11am to watch our Sunday Service. Our online services have worship and teaching for all the family including a kids talk by our Families, Youth and Children’s team. You can find these services on our YouTube channel or by going to our Sermons page.

We have some great resources including crafts and songs for families to do alongside our Sunday morning online services. For more information about these resources please contact mark@bangorparishchurch.org.uk

If you are looking for fun things to do with your family at home to grow in faith together, check out our Family Resources page.

Little Church

Small children soak up information like a sponge. They have such a capacity for learning and in Little Church we want to create a space where they can learn about how much God loves them. With prayers, songs, crafts and play we seek to teach the children that they can know and love God now.

Each week Little Church is supervised by leaders to ensure that parents can engage in the service but those who wish to stay with their children are very welcome to do so.  

Children usually join in with the main church service at 11:30am and then are taken out by parents after about 15 minutes. Children are then collected by parents after the service.


Kid’s Church

We believe that children have an exceptional ability to meet with God because they have such great faith. Through Kid’s Church we seek to help children to engage in a living and active faith that changes their world and the world around them. Through songs, games, crafts, stories, memory verse and more, all from our Jigsaw program, there are lots of different ways for children to come and experience God’s amazing love for them.

Connect

CONNECT is our secondary school ministry.

Young people are growing up in such a difficult environment. With social media, global crises and school exams there are lots of things invading their minds. In Connect we seek to create a space where young people can connect with the God who can change all of that and resource them to become the agents of that change.

Sundays

Connect meets every Sunday during the 11:30am service with DVDs, good food, games and lots of interesting topics for us to get our teeth into.

Socials

Connect//Social also goes on regular nights out and holds a variety of events throughout the year, including a trip every other month to ‘The Hub’ at Orangefield Presbyterian and monthly Diocesan SNL events (via McD’s!!!).

Serving

Connect//Serve offers opportunities for young people to serve in the life of the church. Young people are given the chance to serve tea and coffee, to play in the band, to collect the offering or read in front of the Church

Residential

Throughout the year, Connect//Residential offers opportunities to go away on youth weekends like Summer Madness, the confirmation weekend, Kilbroney camps and Crosslinks camps.


Toddler play area

For parents who wish to remain in the service but need a bit of space for their babies to be able to play a little, we provide a parent and baby play area at the back of the Church opposite the sound desk during the 11:30am service.
