A Meeting each Sunday Morning for children and young people 0 - 18 years
TGIS means Thank God It's Sunday.
Our aim: To share the difference that Jesus makes in our lives with the next generation.
Our Commitment: To provide a safe and friendly space for all
Why do we do it? For enjoyment ..... ~To give back to the church ..... To share what we have learnt ..... Because we want the children to have the chance to learn as we did, and continue to do so ..... we have a passion for it.
Why do the children and young people come? "I enjoy it" ..... "I like to meet my friends" ..... "I like the biscuits afterwards" ..... "I want to learn more about my faith" ..... "I want to be able to ask questions safely"
When do we meet? 10:30 am on a Sunday morning. We worship together with the adults at the start of the service and then go into the halls to enjoy our own activities.
