Gerrard Street places a great importance on its children's work.
We realise that children and young people are an important part of the church today and the leaders of the church of tomorrow.
Every Sunday we have dedicated activities for children and young people, or hold seasonal family all-age worship services. After some sung worship and notices in the main morning service, children head out to their groups where they enjoy interactive and age appropriate Bible teaching with our children's ministry teams.
Our creche is for children from birth up to their third birthday. It is open throughout our morning service from 11am – 12.30pm. Children are cared for by our dedicated team who aim to make this an enjoyable and fun time for the kids. We believe that even very young children can learn and so we aim to sensitively share something of Jesus’s love for the kids.
Children 3 – 5 years old are catered for in this fun and interactive group. It runs during the Sunday morning service from around 11.20am – 12.30pm in the dedicated Little Lighthouse room.
Lighthouse is the children’s group at Gerrard Street for primary aged children (P1-P6). It runs on a Sunday morning from around 11.20am – 12.30pm in the Hall and Youth Centre.
Our vision for Lighthouse is to see all young people develop their faith and to grow to have a living relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ. Lighthouse is a family where we deeply care for one another and we pray for each other every week. It is a space for young people to ask questions and explore what their faith really means.
Young people from P7-S3 are welcome to join Creed. More details of this can be found in the Youth page.
