Youth and Children
We love to welcome children and so we have a children's corner, where young children can be with their parents during the service until they feel happy enough to join Lighthouse Our church operates a 'Safe to Grow' policy, and all our children's workers are DBS checked.
Welcome to Lighthouse!
We would like to welcome you and your children to the children’s activities here at Bideford Baptist Church. Our aim is to welcome the children as an integral part of the church family, to bring your children into the presence of Jesus, and to encourage their faith in God to grow through worship, prayer and learning more about Him.
Lighthouse is for children aged 3 to 11 years.We meet in the lower hall, going out of the service usually after the second worship song and worship, pray and learn together. We do a variety of activities from quizzes, arts and crafts, reading, puzzles and games to help us learn about Jesus and how to live our lives for him.
There are books, pictures to colour, toys and puzzles etc. in the childrens corner at the back of church to help keep your litle ones occupied during the service, if they do not feel ready to join us in Lighthouse.
Last year we learnt about Creation and the children made this amazing collage which now decorates the Children's Corner in Church.
Bideford Baptist Pre-School meets in our premises during the week. The Pre-School's aim is to provide a safe and caring environment where children are given the opportunity to learn through play without fear of rejection or failure. The Pre-School is run in two parts: the actual Pre-school caters for children aged between 2 and 5 years and meets Monday - Thursday 9am - 4pm and Fridays 9am - 1pm. The toddler group meets in the upstairs hall on Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday mornings 9.30am - 11.30am.
