We want our children to have a solid relationship with Jesus, and to know Him as a close friend who cares about every part of their lives.
Sometimes, we do this by dancing like chickens. It’s true. Other times, we sit and read the bible together. And in the midst of the fun, the friendships and the discovering, Jesus is making Himself known to the City Kids.
How it works
Fifteen minutes into the Sunday morning service, parents bring their children through to the City Kids Zone, where they register with the group leaders. We currently offer kids work for our 10am Canterbury site meeting and our 10.30am Whitstable site meeting.
Now the fun begins, as children break into their different age groups (based around school years). A carousel of activities enables them to be active and reflective, as they discover how exciting Jesus is, and learn about knowing him for themselves.
The safety of the children is of utmost importance. To ensure that they are protected, we:
- Register children at the beginning and end of our time together so we know where the children are at all times throughout the morning.
- Give parents / carers a ticket at the first registration that must be returned at the end of the session for them to pick up their child.
- Ensure that all adults involved in the City Kids ministry must have an up to date CRB certificate.
- Ensure that no child is allowed to go anywhere alone whilst at City Kids.

We have a crèche for 0-2yr olds.
Explorers - Nursery & Reception
Nursery and Reception children start the morning with fun and interactive games. Simple worship songs keep them engaged, followed by a bible story with one key lesson to take on board. A fun craft activity linked to the bible story rounds the morning off and gives each child a special souvenir of their own to take home.
