PLANET KIDS

Here at Rayleigh Vineyard, one of our most important areas is our Children’s Ministry, which we call Planet Kids.  We have a team of gifted and dedicated people (who are all required to complete a DBS form) who work with our children of all ages, both on Sundays, at events and groups during the week.

On a Sunday morning, children are signed in to their appropriate age group as the main service starts.

Our youngest age group aimed at young babies, through to two year olds.  This age group has a designated area set up on a Sunday morning with lots of toys; aimed to create a fun, colourful and safe environment.  The Shooting Stars area is based right in the main meeting area, (including a baby changing and baby feeding zone) allowing parents who are in the Shooting Stars group, to hear the service and feel part of it, whilst knowing their little ones are also having fun. 

This age group is for our 2-5 year olds and is rooted firmly in having fun.  On a Sunday morning, the children in this age group will look at a simple story from the Bible, followed by a craft activity, a time for games and a snack.  The children are able to take home a whole range of craft items and activity sheets that they have received during the morning, to help them remember what they have learnt during the morning’s session.

This age group is for the 5-11 year olds (primary school) and follows a similar format to the Rockets of games, Bible stories, craft activities, snacks and fun.  In theAsteroids group, the children have plenty of time to have fun, as well as build friendships and begin to explore and understand what it means to be a Christian.
