Children and Young People 


Children (0-11)

Jesus had much to say about children, and at River we take seriously His instruction to value them. During our Sunday morning meetings, normally the children of junior school age and below stay with their parents for the first 30 minutes, after which they are released to their own groups to enjoy various fun activities and teaching which helps them get to know Jesus.

  • Splash for 3-5 (Including Reception)
  • Flow for Primary School Years 1 and 2
  • OverFlow for Primary School Years 3-6
  • Edge for Senior Schools Year 7+

Under 3's are welcome to stay with their parents in the meeting and extra space is available in an adjoining room with a sound relay.

All of our work with children is staffed and run according to Child Protection guidelines by members of the congregation.

Young People (11+)

Our young people of secondary school age belong to Edge which is a youth group that meets on Sunday mornings with activities and teaching to help them understand their faith and get to know Jesus as a true friend.

On Friday evenings, Edge meets 7.30-9pm for more in-depth times of teaching, sharing and friendship, with social activities and trips out throughout the year. Once a year, the Edge youth weekend takes place where we aim to create a space for the young people to explore their relationship with Jesus more, and have a great time away together!
