Families, Children and Youth

We are a Family Church.  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. We will ask you to complete a consent form to ensure we have all relevant information and permission. The first Sunday in every month is an all-age service for both congregations.

Children’s and Families

At Clyst Heath

  • 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.

At Trinity School

We have two groups, one for Children 0-reception aged and one for those in years 1-7. 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.

Toddler groups

We run two mid-week toddler groups during term time.

Dad’s and Toddlers – is a once a month Saturday morning session for Dad’s and their small children.

K@tch

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.

 

Children’s Groups (0 – 11yrs old)

Ages and stages

Youth (11-18s)

We are passionate about seeing every young person thrive, creating a safe space for them to explore faith.  To build strong foundations in the Bible, strong relationships with Christian peers and have strong opportunities to serve.

 Our vision goes beyond 11-18s as we long to see whole hearted, lifelong disciples of Jesus.  Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your strength.” The second is this: “Love your neighbour as yourself.” There is no commandment greater than these.’ Mark 12:30-31

Year 11-13 – ELEVATE

meets on a Sunday evening and helps young people to grow in their faith through building strong roots into the Bible, building strong relationships with Christian peers and building strong service opportunities and training. Those in years 11-13 are also part of our mid-week youth home group.

Years 8-10 – IMPACT 

meets during the morning service and helps young people to grow in Christian community through Bible study and discussion. Impact also have a mid-week homegroup and regular socials.

Years 6-7 – EXPLODE 

meets during the Clyst Heath morning service and aims to help young people to develop their own faith and grow as disciples. For those who’s families attend Trinity School service the young people in years 6-7 are part of the school aged group.

 


Unplugged – is our Youth service aimed at 11-15 year olds and is run by the older teenagers. Unplugged is a great balance of a service that unpacks some of the questions we’re all thinking but maybe too afraid to ask mixed with some great music. Check out one of our services online to get a taster.  Click here for this term’s programme. or check out our Instagram page
