Children at Hope Church

During the sermon the young children and babies are entertained, play games, sing songs and learn about God.

This hopefully may entertain them for at least part of the service on a Sunday morning.

 
What we do at FROG squad:
We usually start off as one big group and have fun singing songs and playing games. We then split into two age groups; 3 - 7 year olds and 8 - 11 year olds. In our groups we read a bible story, talk about God  and do creative activities to help us remember what we've learnt.

Child Protection

Hope Church
Bangor
regards child protection and good working practice as a priority. In the interests of the safety and well being of all children and young people, it has developed and operates a formal child protection policy, which is registered with the Churches’ Child Protection Advisory Service.

The church is committed to ensuring that everyone working with children or young people:
  • has undergone a Criminal Records Bureau check at enhanced level,
  • is adequately trained and supervised,
  • understands and follows the church’s child protection policy.


The child protection policy may be viewed and/or a copy obtained from either of the Child Protection Co-ordinators or by e-mailing info@hopechurchbangor.org.

As part of this church’s commitment to children and young people it has appointed Bryony Mundy as Child Protection Co-ordinator and Magali Roberts as Deputy Child Protection Co-ordinator.
