We are blessed here at Wylde Green URC to have a vibrant Junior Church, run by a team of dedicated volunteers. In each of our groups we are able to develop faith by exploring and learning, in a safe and friendly environment, with a wide variety of fun and exciting bible based activities.
0 - 2 and a half years
Our crèche has a variety of stimulating resources to entertain and enable our youngest members to learn more about the world around them. Each week we also provide an age appropriate activity that is linked to the Junior Church theme e.g. the parables of Jesus.
2 and a half - 4 years 4 - 8 years
In this group we aim to nurture the beginnings of each child’s journey of faith. We provide exciting activities, including stories, craft, and role play, to develop an understanding of the Bible and introduce children to the message of love that God and Jesus bring to us.

8 - 12 years
The young people in this group have opportunities to further develop their faith and their understanding of the Bible in the context of our lives today. They also enjoy a variety of activities, to stimulate and inspire their thinking and encourage their empathy for others.
The activities in this group are mainly discussion based and the young people are encouraged to ask questions, develop their own thoughts and deepen their own faith within their lives. They look at the wider world, the problems that people face, and also look at their own community and the part they can play within it, using the bible to inspire and encourage.
