SELECTED STORY: WHY I LOVE OUR CHILDREN'S GROUPS...

“I love our children's groups… because it's exciting to be building the church of tomorrow for future generations.”

Various
We have the amazing privilege of serving 70 children every Sunday at King’s across our four Sunday children’s groups, and we serve another 100 toddlers and around 60 parents and carers every week at Tuesday Totz. We asked a few of the children and volunteers why they love our children’s groups. Here are just a few of the responses.

“Didn’t know where to start without writing a whole book!!! The kids are lots of fun to be with. Amazing to see them grow and change as they learn about Jesus and start to become what God has planned for them: youth leaders, musicians, teachers of the word. And great to see them get involved in church life as they grow up and sometimes even receive a calling on their life to go and serve in another country. All this and they grow up to become such lovely people to be with, absolutely amazing. Love’m.”
Iris (Volunteer in NRG)

“10 reasons why I love serving in the Children's team:
1. It's an exciting ministry to be serving in
2. We have great fun together
3. It's a great team of people
4. We get to see the children take their first steps of faith
5. We watch them as their love for God grows and they worship him freely
6. We hear their prayers develop as they walk in step with Jesus
7. We see them reach out with compassion and pray for others and for the wider world around them
8. We watch them step out into the gifts of the spirit and hear from God
9. We are blessed and encouraged by seeing Jesus through their eyes
10. We are building the future church”

Lori (Volunteer in Fusion)

“I love to see our Totz having fun, making friends and worshiping Jesus.

A few weeks ago we were having a time of worship when the Holy Spirit came and we all lay on the floor in his presence. I’ve learnt that I can meet with God even when I'm looking after 0-4 year olds.”
Emma (Volunteer in Totz)

“Kitty loves making things in NRG! Kitty loved playing with toys at Totz.”
Kitty (Child in NRG)

“It's really fun because you get to learn about Jesus, and you get to do lots of different activities, and it's really fun to worship Jesus. We've been learning about when Solomon built the beautiful temple and he put jewels and coins and treasure in the temple. And the temple was shiny and he was the most magnificent person that has ever built a beautiful and shiny temple.”
Bethany (Child in NRG)

“I like the games and the art and puzzles.”
D (Child in N:Gage)

“I get to hear great stories, and I can be myself.”
J (Child in Fusion in N:Gage)

“It’s all really good. I really enjoy it. I really like what we're doing at the moment learning about the the Ten Commandments and the Old Testament."
Tom (Child in N:Gage)
