Welcome to Kids! As a team, we love all the children that God brings our way, whether on Sundays or during the week. We want Kids to be a place where the children and team love to be! In partnership with the parents/carers we want to model Jesus' love for them.

We believe that children are part of our Church and we want them to grow in their faith just as much as the grown-ups! We encourage them throughout Sunday mornings to read the Bible, pray for each other, and as they grow older to serve and give as well as sharing God's heart for their friends. We encourage the children, with the team, to chat to God; to listen and to respond to what He is saying through the Holy Spirit.

Throughout Kids, we want to encourage and provide opportunities for the children and team to bless others, to step out in their faith and grow in the gifts and talents God has given them.


We welcome and support children with special needs.

We would love to welcome you to join the fun in Kids on a Sunday. We have two groups - Mini Kids and Big Kids.

Mini Kids is for those up to and including full-time nursery. We love playing, singing, creating things and learning about Jesus with the help of a few of our puppet friends!

You will find Mini kids down the corridor to the left of the main entrance of Overton Grange School. Look out for the mini kids sign and a friendly team member in an orange t-shirt.   



SV_Big Kids_strapline.png

Big Kids is for school aged children. We go on an exploration each morning, visiting different zones, encountering Jesus along the way! 

Big kids use a number of locations around Overton Grange School.  You can sign your child in at the bottom of the stairs in the foyer. Look out for the Big Kids sign and a friendly team member in orange.


If its your child's first time in kids, we'll ask you to fill in a few details to ensure we can keep your child safe as possible while they are in mini or big kids. We use a wristband system to sign your children in and out of kids and you can sign them in with one of our team from 10.15am, which is when Kids begins. Sign in closes at 10.30am. 

If you would like your child to attend kids on a regular basis, we will ask you to complete a registration form for your child.

Mini Kids will be continuing their story sacks this term - learning about Jesus and the world around us through sensory play, discovery and fun! Our older Mini Kids will have an accompanying craft each week - do remember to ask them all about what they have learned at church!

Later on in the term, we will be visiting key Biblical characters and learning their personal stories of how God helped, encouraged and loved them.

We have our Baptism service coming up in April and another Dedication service in March where some of our Mini Kids and their families will be celebrating. These will be special times shared by our whole church family.

adventure zone - Time to burn off some energy playing wide games, ball games and team games! There is also space to chill out with a board game too, or a game of giant Jenga!

At Sutton Vineyard we believe that when the church partners with families we can have a far greater influence on our kids and demonstrate the message of God's story to the next generation. 

We have pulled together a few resources that might be useful as you join with your child on their faith journey.
