Childrens and Youth Groups


Youth and children’s work is central to life at Trinity Church. The main meeting time for our groups is during Sunday morning services.  Our desire is for all children and young people to become whole-hearted, lifelong disciples of Jesus.  We believe the good news of Jesus is for them right now, whatever their age and therefore we make teaching them about Jesus from the Bible a high priority. 

Do come along to the group for your age – no need to let us know beforehand, just come and join in!  All adults involved with youth and children’s groups are DBS checked and have received appropriate training for your child’s safety.  The first Sunday in every month is an all-age service for both congregations.

At Clyst Heath the children’s and youth work is divided by school years.

Stars is for little ones from 0 to Reception. Stars introduces Jesus and the Bible through activities, craft, Bible stories, prayer and play.  

Sparks is for children in school years 1-3. Sparks explores the Bible more deeply and what it means to follow Jesus through activities, craft, Bible stories and prayer.

Ignite is for children in school years 4-5. Ignite develops children’s faith through activities and Bible stories and aims to turn information in the mind into transformation in life.

Explode is for children in school years 6-7. Explode aims to help young people to develop their own faith and grow as disciples.

Impact is for young people in school year 8 and above. Impact helps young people to grow in Christian community through Bible study and discussion.  Impact also have a mid week homegroup and regular socials.

At Seabrook we have two groups, one for preschool children and one for school-aged children and young people.  Here the team are following the sermon series in their sessions, everyone starts together in the hall then the children go to their groups for the second part of the service.  As the congregation develops at Seabrook we will adapt the set up as necessary in line with the numbers of children and young people attending. 

We run a club for all the children in school years 3 to 6 called K@tch.  This runs on Tuesdays during term time at Clyst Heath Primary School and starts at 18:15.

On the third Sunday of every month (6pm at Clyst Heath Primary School) we have our ‘Unplugged’ service. This is a shorter service designed for 11-15 year olds and is run by the older teenagers.
