TRAILBLAZERS

CHILDREN’S MINISTRY


A GENERATION IN REVIVAL

Train Them Up

Our Trailblazers are our children from 5 years upwards. They have their own activities after our main time of worship together. There are creche facilities available in the Gateway Centre, but parents/carers will need to maintain their own supervision of babies & toddlers at all times.

What we want for your young people is that they experience God for themselves and become used to hearing/sensing God and praying about issues in their own lives and praying for each other.

We can support what you build into them as parents/carers, but what you build into their lives through the rest of the week is obviously crucial.



ENCOUNTERING GOD

In the main worship time, please do everything you can to be a great example to younger generations, whether or not you yourself are a parent/carer. Our youngsters learn by example. If the adults are clearly committed and engaged in public worship, it is more likely that our children will learn some good & godly habits.


WHEN WE MEET

Having Fun

Our emphasis is to make sure Trailblazers meet together in a safe, fun and supportive environment.

God is not boring, and we aim to make sure our children have an experience of Church that is appropriate to their age and reflects God’s goodness, kindness and creativity.



WE DO THIS BY:

MISSION MENTALITY

From time to time we launch projects for the children that are linked to a project in the Third World, such as buying a cow in Sri Lanka. This helps to build the concept of being part of a worldwide Church family, and of doing practical things to help meet the needs of others.


VALUING THE GIFTS

Meaning, the gifts of the Holy Spirit. We encourage visiting speakers to pray over the children, to bless them and to have prophetic words for them. We also encourage the children to experience the Holy Spirit for themselves and pray with each other.


BIBLE AWARENESS

Using good quality teaching resources, we take the children on a journey through key stories of the Bible to help build their understanding of how God has worked in the past, and how he continues to work now.
