At Cornerstone we believe that children are a vital part of our church family. We want to value and nurture the children God has entrusted to us.. For this reason, we have a dedicated Kid's Church programme which hopes to lead them to know Christ more and learn what it means to a follower of Jesus. The Kid's church programme is split into three sections: Creche, JAM (Jesus and Me) and CK4C (Cornerstone Kids 4 Christ).
Kid's Church Leader
0-2 years old
During the service, the children meet to play, sing songs and pray together.
JAM (Jesus and Me)
Nursery - Primary 2
In JAM, the children start by playing together and building relationships with one another and their leaders. Then they have a group time with a Bible lesson, songs, prayer and a craft.
We work through the Old & New Testaments telling the story of God's plan for His people and what it means for us today.
In the Old Testament we tell the story of God's People and how created and cared for the world.
In the New Testament we've been thinking about four key questions:
Who is Jesus?, what is the church?, who is God? and what is a Christian?
We also have a Bible memory curriculum where the children learn 10 verses a year.
CK4C (Cornerstone Kids 4 Christ)
Primary 3 - Primary 7
CK4C Meet together to pray and play games then settle down watch half an episode of the What's in the Bible series. After this they discus the episode and do a related activity.
Once every 5 weeks CK4C get to enjoy 'Cookies and Chat' where someone from the church comes to join their group and be interviewed by the children about their Christian faith. This gives a great opportunity for cross generational relationships to form and for the children to hear about the difference knowing Jesus has made in someones life.
