Helping our Children Fulfil their Destiny in God
At Tees Valley Community Church children are an important part of our church family. Our desire is to see a generation of children who discover God for themselves. We want to encourage them to love God and equip them to impact ‘their world’ and fulfil their destiny in God.
So on Sunday mornings we want to provide a space so that kids who are visiting us, or who are coming regularly, can have fun, in a safe and caring place. An environment, where they can meet God in ways that are appropriate to their age. Kidspace is led by our faithful and dedicated team of volunteers. All of whom are CRB checked and have received safeguarding children training.
Kidspace has meetings in which each child can meet with God in an intimate and powerful way, so they can grow and get to understand God’s word in an environment where they want to bring friends. We aim to teach the children that the word of God is true, and to cultivate a desire for them to read and apply this in their lives. We want to facilitate the children becoming passionate worshippers of God by providing an environment where they can freely and creatively express their love for Him.
During our Sunday service, after some time worshipping with the whole church family, Kidspace children will meet separately for more worship and teaching in a style best suited to their age.
