The laughter and noise of children is a wonderfully regular experience at Ammanford Church. One of the most frequent observations from our visitors is the sheer number of kids present! If you have children then it won’t be long before they make friends with others their own age here.
We love children, which is why our children’s work operates under this mission statement:
‘Having fun learning about Jesus, from the Bible, in a safe place!’
We believe learning about God should be engaging and fun. God is not boring and we don’t want our kids to think that he is! So we have a program that includes all the things kids love – games, crafts, drama and teaching in a fun, informal atmosphere.
We have two crèches and 4 classes available. These cater for children aged 6 months up to 14 years, all staffed by DBS checked volunteers.
- Baby Crèche: 6 – 18 months
- Toddler Crèche: 18 months – 3 years
Sunday School classes:
- Knowing God better- bible studies for young people aged 11-14
The crèches, Sunday School and KGB all begin registration from 10:15am.
How does my child get involved?
If you would like your child to be involved in Crèche or Sunday School simply register your children at the Registration Desk, which you will be directed to upon arrival at church on a Sunday morning. Our volunteers will tell you which classes your children are in.
Peace of Mind
We take seriously our responsibility for the safeguard and welfare of every child entrusted to our care. We have adopted a number of policies including a Safeguarding Children Policy. A copy of these are available upon request and we will be happy to discuss any aspect of these with you should you have any questions. In line with best practice we ensure that DBS (formally CRB) checks are carried out on our volunteers and that no child is ever left alone in the company of just one volunteer.
