Children & Youth
Little Bears are our friendly mid-week toddler groups that meet in Bognor Regis and Chichester every Thursday during school term-time. A dedicated team of leaders and helpers welcome mums, dads, grandparents, carers, their babies and preschool children, from all walks of life, to enjoy a fun morning together. We provide tea, coffee, good cake (usually home made) and a safe environment for the children to play in. We also have a snack and craft time for the children and a singing session at the end. All of our team are DBS checked and safeguarding trained.
Grace Kids Preschool
Grace Kids Preschool is our group for pre-school babies and children. Through a mixture of games, stories, craft, role play and worship we aim to introduce the children to a God who loves them and show them that God has an exciting plan and a destiny for their lives. You are welcome to leave your child here with trained staff or stay with your child if they need help to settle in.
Grace Kids is for school years Reception to Year 6. It provides a safe and fun-packed setting for our children to learn more about the reality of God in their lives. This is achieved through games, bible-stories, craft, worship and much more. The group is fast-paced and interactive, but also has times when the children are separated into older and younger age groups so that activities can be tailored to the right age.
Grace Youth is for all young people in secondary school and sixth form college. Our vision is for young people in Grace Church and beyond to find freedom in knowing Jesus Christ and loving him with all their heart (Philippians 3:8, Luke 10:27).
On Sunday mornings, Grace Youth meets during the preach for those in school years 7-11. We have a great time chatting, playing games and opening the Bible together. We encourage young people in Years 12-13 to stay in the main meeting and engage with the preach.
As well as Sunday mornings, Grace Youth runs a Friday evening program of events for those from school years 7 to 13, packed full of fun events, outside activities, adventures and moments to encounter God together.
As a church our Youth attend the Newday Youth festival during the School Summer holidays. The festival brings our young people into closer relationships with God and each other as they share the experience of worshipping, learning and hanging out with 1000’s of other youngsters from across the UK and beyond.
All our team members have completed an enhanced DBS check and are clearly identified with team t-shirts. If you want to take a look at our policy you can download it below.
