Sonshine Kids is the name of our toddler groups. We know that having young children can be tiring and our desire is to be a blessing to kids and carers alike, creating a fun and friendly space where you can enjoy your time and get to know us as a church. The groups are open to all children under 3 (plus older siblings if they are around).
Tuesday and Friday 10am - 11:30am

For pre-school children aged 3 and up, this is a fun-filled 45 mins of activity. Let your little one run off some steam and learn some sporting skills while you enjoy a coffee in our Oasis café.
Wednesday 1pm - 1.45pm
NMBC Games Hall
During our morning services there are groups for children of all ages (alongside our Sunday groups for YOUTH)
For 0-3 year olds we have a crèche facility available where our fantastic team of volunteers look after our children, giving parents or carers the time and space to worship God.
For children from nursery to P3 (ages 3-7) our Bright Sparks groups learn about God’s love in a warm and friendly environment which we pray gives them the best experience of church life from a young age.
From P4-P6 (ages 8-11) the children are part of our Live Wires groups where they begin to engage with the Bible in more depth and grow together while having lots of fun and building strong relationships.
We love our own children, but we also believe that all children are precious to God and deserve the opportunity to know that God loves them and cares for them. That’s why we get involved in our local schools and put on events that those who are new to church will enjoy.
Messy Church is our monthly event for families and children. With crafts, food and a simple service, it’s a great chance to get a taste of what church life is like whilst getting your tea and having lots of fun.

We are involved in several of our local primary schools with assemblies, class visits and special services. There are also SU groups in a number of the schools. We also have the Advent(ure) Trail and Easter Code events which tell the story of Christmas and Easter to children at 5 Primary Schools.
