Sunday Mornings with God’s VIP’s.

Illuminate is TVC Church’s children’s ministry, with groups for children aged from 2 to 11. Our passion is to equip our children to know God’s illuminating power in their lives and to encourage them to illuminate the world with God’s love.

On a Sunday morning, we join together as a full TVC Church family for the first 15 minutes and then we head off to our groups.


For babies and their carers (up to the age of 2). A place to watch the service together with freedom to wriggle, feed and play.

From your second Birthday up until you turn 4 – Fireflies is the place to make friends, play and to learn about Jesus together.

From when you turn 4, until the end of reception we invite you to join together for Spark – a time of fun, games, friendship and discovering a Jesus.
