Kid’s Church & Creche
Our thriving Kid’s Church is built on the fundamentals of fun, faith and friendship. Each morning is packed with songs, videos, puppets, games, quizzes, and so much more. Kid’s Church runs in Portsmouth during the second (11:15 am) service, and in Gosport, with groups for Pre-schoolers right up to Year 9. Creche runs in both Portsmouth and Gosport, at the same times as Kid’s Church, for toddlers up to the age of 2. Click below to find out more:
Youth and Young Adults
Lifegroups are the heart of Family Church. They are where real friendships are formed, where strength and encouragement is shared, where Sunday’s messages are discussed at a greater depth, and where everyone can grow in their relationship with God. We have lifegroups meeting in homes all over the Portsmouth/Gosport area, and further afield. Click below to find your nearest lifegroup:
