At Community Church Edinburgh, we value every member of our church family, and we appreciate the contribution children can bring to our community.
Halfway through our Sunday morning gatherings, the children leave for their own groups: Thunderkids (age 3-5), Kids Allowed (6-8) and Bonkers Conquerers (9-12). There is also a creche available for children under three.
Every six weeks or so, we have an all-age Sunday gathering, where we explore creative ways of worshipping, and seek to create a space where people of all ages can engage meaningfully with God.
About once a month, on a Friday, from 4.30 – 6.30pm, we hold Messy Church – an opportunity for families to spend time together connecting with God through crafts, games, stories and songs. Messy Church is a way of being church for families in a way that involves creativity, hospitality and celebration (and usually lots of mess!). The evening always ends with a delicious meal, prepared by our incredible team of volunteers.
Our Children’s and Families’ work is led and coordinated by Kirsty Hook, who can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
