Ministry amongst children and families is a very important part of the life of GBC.

We seek to ground our ministry to children and families in the same values we share elsewhere at GBC: Love God | Love Each Other | Make Disciples.

We do this by providing children with a place to worship God, a time where they enjoy each other’s company, and an opportunity to grow in their faith as well as share it with their peers.

Sunday Mornings

We have programmes for children and youth on a Sunday morning, during our Sunday Celebration, for ages 0-15. We worship all together for the first 20 minutes or so and then our children and young people go out to their groups for age specific activities and teaching.

Families Venture

Our Families Venture congregation meets on the second Sunday afternoon of the month at 4.00pm for fun, games, craft, worship and Bible stories.  It’s for families who want to learn more about who Jesus is and the difference he makes in our lives. We finish the afternoon with a meal together.

Toddler Groups

We have two Toddler groups – one at Godmanchester Baptist Church called Littlefoot and a new one at The Beacon Centre in Little Stukeley called Stay & Play that started on 10 June.

Children and their parent/carer are welcome. Come and meet others, have fun and a chat and coffee.

Littlefoot meets during term time on Wednesday mornings from 9.00am to 10.30am. [Numbers are restricted and there is a waiting list. For more information and to be added to the list, please find the Littlefoot Facebook page and ask to join the group.]

Stay & Play meets during term time on Monday mornings from 9.15am to 10.45am. Booking is not required – just turn up!

Throughout the year we hold various events for children, including a Children’s Activity Day on 29 August. For details about this and the booking form, click here. Details of other events will be added at the appropriate time.
