Bible, Learning And 

Sharing Together!

At Gateway, children are important members of our church family. We value them, making a real effort to make them feel loved, special and included. Our children’s ministry aims to help your children know and experience God for themselves, giving them a bible-based foundation for life. We want them to be able to bring their friends to church activities and to make friendships with other children in the church.  

Our BLAST pre-school and school groups are divided by school year as follows:

Dynamos (Creche 0-3’s),  Sparklers (Pre-school & Reception), Rockets (Years 1 & 2), Flames (Years 3 & 4), Flames+ (Years 5 & 6)

To understand the big story

We ensure that the children are taught Bible basics. We want them to use their bibles to put their faith into action and learn more about God’s plan.​

To experience God


We want to provide an encouraging environment in which children can experience God through worship and prayer and learn ways in which He speaks to us.

Parental involvement


Bringing up children is a joy and a huge challenge! We want to work with and support parents as they encourage their children’s spiritual growth.

To tell others about Jesus


We want to create an atmosphere where children want to bring their friends, so that they too can learn about Jesus and build good relationships.
