Families, children & young people
Junior Church meets on Sunday mornings during the 10.30am service (except when there is an all-age service, when we stay in church), providing a relaxed and fun environment for our children and young people to learn about the Good News through a variety of activities.
We have two groups in Junior Church:
JaM (Jesus and Me) – from age 3 to Year 4
T4C (Together for Christ) – from Year 5 upwards
For children under 3, there are crèche facilities in the Side Chapel.
Every month, our young people (school years 7-11) get together for wacky games, food and a God spot. Several stay on for our 'Cafe Oasis' contemporary worship. Join us between 4.45pm and 6.00pm on the first Sunday of every month (except August).
Boys' & Girls' Brigades
Boys’ Brigade is an international organisation over 125 years old, and 2nd Fleet Company has been running at FMC since 1986. We meet every Wednesday evening in term time and aim to share the gospel and encourage the development of a personal Christian faith.
The aim of the Girls' Brigade is to seek, serve and follow Jesus Christ. We have around 30 girls in 2nd Fleet Girls' Brigade Company, led by three officers and six auxiliary staff. During term time we meet each Monday evening.
Messy Church is a time for families to enjoy being together, create together and celebrate God together. It's all age, it's fun and aims to give an opportunity to encounter Jesus and grow closer to him.
We explore Bible themes through getting messy, and use stories, prayers, songs and games to celebrate together. Our next Messy Mornings are on 18th February & 7th April 2020.
Every summer, more than 70 children aged 5-11 come to FMC for games, craft, dramas, prayers and Bible stories as part of our children's holiday club. Save the date for 2020 - Monday 27th - Friday 31st July.
Every 31st of October, we host a Light Party, a fun alternative which explores what it means to shine as a light in the world. With free food, crafts and a bouncy castle, we guarantee fun for all the family!
