But tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, And His strength and His wondrous works that He has done. For He established a testimony in Jacob and appointed a law in Israel, which He commanded our fathers. That they should teach them to their children, that the generation to come might know, even the children yet to be born. That they may arise and tell them to their children. That they should put their confidence in God And not forget the works of God, But keep His commandments. (Psalm 78:4-7)
The Lord has made the heavens his throne; from there He rules over everything. (Psalm 103:19)
Even before He made the world, God loved us and chose us in Jesus to be holy and without fault in His eyes. (Ephesians 1:4)
“If you continue in My Word, then you are truly disciples of Mine; and you will know the truth, and the truth will make you free.” (John 8:31-32)
These verses are the core of our vision and they shape all that we do. We aim to give the children a deeper understanding of who God is, their relationship with Him and what faith in Him looks like. We want to see families being equipped with tools for a life of faith:
Assured that they are loved unconditionally by a God who chose them even before He created the universe.
Knowing Him through His word and learning how to read and apply it to their lives.
Able to live as Jesus’ disciples, walking in His ways through the power of the Holy Spirit.
We are striving to create age-appropriate environments that are welcoming and inspiring; where they can explore, ask questions, receive sound teaching and have lots of fun! The Space Academy has come about through a desire to see the children understanding how BIG and AWESOME our Sovereign God is as they marvel at all that He has created and rules over. Anyway, who doesn’t like stars, silver paint, glow-in-the-dark and didn’t want to be an astronaut….?
Please follow the other children out to the Space Academy when they are released from the main service. Children will be registered into their groups with a ticket that will be given to the parent when the child is registered. Please bring this at collection time to keep all the children safe. If you have any questions or concerns, please speak to any of the leaders wearing Space Academy lanyards.
For children aged 2-4yrs. A loving, fun environment where children can be creatively introduced to Jesus and faith and begin to know the stories and characters of the bible.
Reception to Year 2. As they start school we will be introducing the children to wider ideas of faith and a deeper understanding of who they are in Christ. We want to begin to equip the children with tools for deepening their faith and knowing God better, becoming aware of the Holy Spirit at work in their hearts.
Year 3 - Year 6. The children will be learning to practice their faith, knowing how to read the bible, pray, apply their faith to their lives and the choices they make as they learn to walk in step with the Spirit. We want to give them the opportunity to love and serve others and God and to prepare them for secondary school and the increased level of responsibility they will face.
