Here at Holy Trinity we have a passion for engaging with young children and their families. We run a number of groups that are open to all children, parents, grandparents and carers. We have a dedicated youth team of amazing volunteers and staff, so why not have a read and find out a bit about us, what makes us tick and what we are up to that you could be involved in:
Who Are We?
We have our Children and Families Worker – Charlotte and a dedicated team of volunteers who help guide and drive the direction of our groups, and care about the individuals in them. Everyone involved has signed up to the Church’s Child Protection Policy and been DBS checked.
We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, his power, and the wonders he has done … so the next generation would know them, even the children yet to be born, and they in turn would tell their children. Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands. (Psalm 78:4, 6-7 )
We believe that children are valued individuals with an important place in God’s kingdom. We want children to discover the truth of Jesus and grow in that relationship and share that relationship with others.
We believe that family, in the home and in church, is key. We want to see families worshipping and learning together and growing in faith. We want to support and encourage parents who are primarily responsible for the teaching of Biblical truths to their children.
The Children’s and Families ministry of Holy Trinity Nailsea is an engaging and welcoming community for children, families and their friends that allows them to:
- Love – encounter the love of God through Jesus!
- Learn – learn more about God through biblical, creative and age appropriate talks, activities and worship!
- Live – grow confident in their faith and make contributions to the wider church!
