Hi Children and Parents/Responsible Adults,

If you would like your child/children to be a part of our vibrant children's work on a Sunday morning, then please complete a registration form for them. This will enable us to safeguard your child/children whilst they are with us as they will register each time they attend. It will also ensure that you collect them from their group and keep them with you once the planned children's activities are finished. We thank you for your support in this matter.

We have lots of things for children here at The Ark, Friday clubs, Sunday School and our special Glow Praise Parties, where all children from other churches and lots of friends come together to enjoy songs, dance, prayer and a talk, not to mention the Sparkle Squad Puppet Team too. The Ark is a busy place to be, and we love to share all about Jesus with you too. 

See you at church.

Christmas Song Words

Hi Children,

Here are the Christmas Song words for you to practice for our special Christmas Service. Practise hard.

Song for Christingle (click to view)

Can you see what we have made
For this very special day?
An orange for our planet home
Circling around the sun
Count the seasons as we sing
Summer, autumn, winter, spring
Sing to God who sends the rain
Making all things new again
 
Candlelight burning bright
Chase the darkness of the night
Christ the light, light our way
Live inside our hearts today
 
See the food with colours bright
Taste buds tingle at the sight
Let's be thankful as we share
God's good gifts are everywhere
Why then is the world we made
Wrapped around with ribbon red?
Red is for our ransom paid
When our Lord was crucified.
 
There's a world I'm dreaming of
Where there's peace and joy and love
Light of Jesus everywhere
This is my Christingle prayer

The Brightest Star in the Sky (click to view)

Look up, stars are everywhere, look up stars are everywhere
But that one tell me why it’s the brightest star in the star
 
Look up, stars are everywhere, look up stars are everywhere
But that one tell me why it’s the brightest star in the star
 
Maybe we should follow it, find out where it goes
Maybe we should follow it, find out what it knows, what it knows.
 
Look up, stars are everywhere, look up stars are everywhere
But that one tell me why it’s the brightest star in the star
 
It’s the brightest star in the sky, it’s the brightest star in the sky
 
 
 

A Gift Called Love

It’s a gift so big it can reach us all, bigger than the ocean blue
Yet it fits in the manger wrapped up small, just for me and you
It’s a gift that’s bigger than the sky above, it’s a gift called love
 
It’s a gift so big it can reach us all, taller than the tallest tree
Yet it fits in the manger wrapped up small, just for you and me
It’s a gift that’s bigger than the sky above, it’s a gift called love
 
Baby King small and yet, what a gift you bring
It’s the greatest gift we can ever hope to get,
 
It’s a gift so big it can reach us all, bigger than the mountain high
Yet it fits in the manger wrapped up small, just for you and I
It’s a gift that’s bigger than the sky above, it’s a gift called love
 
It’s a gift called love
 

We Celebrated 10 Years

Our Excite service was very busy on Sunday 29th September, the day of the Celebration Service. Forty five children from 3-10 years joined to together to worship God with songs, a talk and a prayer time.

We also sang to the church our new song, 'Shaped for Serving God,' which was enjoyed by everyone.

We also made prayer boxes as a memento of the special day. Afterwards everyone tucked in to a great BBQ and lots of delicious cakes.
