At Ammanford Church we think children (from babies through to 18 years) are just as important as everyone else. We want even the smallest members of our church to find themselves a safe environment in which they can experience age appropriate teaching in a creative and relevant way. The motto which guides all we do with children is:
'Having fun learning about Jesus, from the Bible, in a safe place!'
We would love to see you and your family making the most of everything we do for children and young people at Ammanford Church.
Sadly, as with almost all our other events & gatherings, how we do our children and youth work has changed significantly in the face of Coronavirus. But there's still plenty going on!
Primary School Age
At present we are unable to offer any 'in person' meetings for our children in primary school. But there's plenty going on each Sunday for the littlest ones!
Firstly, we produce a weekly 'Sunday Story' which is broadcast on our YouTube channel at 10am. This weekly show looks at a a different story from the "Jesus Story Book Bible" each week.
Secondly, there's a weekly Sunday School Zoom which takes place at 11:30am - this is an opportunity for kids to show off crafts they've made related to the Sunday story, to think more about the meaning of the story and to generally catch up with one another. Access is restricted but codes can be obtained by getting in touch via the contact us page.
Secondary School Age
During school term times 'Hangouts' happens every Friday evening, 6PM-7PM, in our church building on Wind Street.
Of course, this is dependant on current restrictions which limits the number of people we can have in our church building. As such booking is ESSENTIAL. (Book via the contact us page)
Hangouts is filled with chill out vibes and food. Usually there's a chance to ask questions about God, faith and everything else and to play games (on computers and on boards!) while figuring out what's in store for the weekend.
A Safe Place
We strive to implement a thorough safeguarding policy throughout all our age groups - a copy of which can be found here. Hopefully our practices (and our DBS checked people) will give you the confidence to entrust the most precious things in your life to some of our groups.
