I give permission for my child to take part in the normal activities of this group. I understand that while involved he/she will be under the control and care of the group leader and/or other adults approved by the church/organisation leadership and that, while the staff in charge of the group will take all reasonable care of the children, they cannot necessarily be held responsible for any loss, damage or injury suffered by my child during, or as a result of, the activity.
Children have a special part to play in the church family at SMB. We want children here to know that they are part of God's family. Each child is valuable and we love welcoming new families into SMB. Our regular Whole Church services are a great place for adults and children to come and be all together as we learn from each other. Children’s Church is an exciting place where we learn together what it means to follow Jesus. In all the children’s work we do, we want to be ‘Growing Together - playing our part in God’s plan’.
Children’s Church meet together on a Sunday morning during the main service. After singing one or two action songs with the adults, children’s church continues in groups with their wonderful team of leaders. We believe this is the best way for us to disciple our children as we meet with them week by week and walk alongside them in their journey of faith.
In this time we share with and encourage our children to hear more about God’s heart for them and how they can know Him too. We do this using resources based on The Bible Curriculum which we adapt for our groups. Every academic year we work chronologically through the Bible to help children understand how the stories they hear fit together, as well as seeing how they are also a part of God’s big story.

Each week all the groups look at the same Bible story. Whilst Scramblers enjoys free play with a short story and activity time included, our older groups, Climbers and Explorers, have more structure built in. Each session involves a memory verse and activity, hearing a Bible story and making a craft. There might be games, drama or other exciting things along the way. Adventurers also have a Bible Story and activity with time for music and play. We hope that by each age group looking at the same topic each week, families can talk about it together, whatever groups the children are in.
At SMB we take the safety of our children seriously – you can find out more about our Safeguarding Policy here
