Safeguarding Children and Young People at Duke Street

Safeguarding Policy

Have you got children that you would like to bring to church? We run a specific programme during our Sunday morning service just for kids!  Our aim is to make sure every child has a fun time whilst learning more about God.  The following children’s activities take place on a Sunday:

Soundproof Room

Duke Street aims to support parents in growing as a household of faith by providing a place where nursing mums and dads with their babies can take part in the Sunday meetings. This is a welcoming and safe place where newborns can cry without disruption and where parents can listen to the service and meet with other parents.

Creche

Duke Street furthers its aim to support parents in instructing children to know and love the God of the Bible from the earliest age in a safe, welcoming, nurturing environment.  This is a place where walking toddlers up to age 2 can play and romp while dedicated volunteers and fellow parents care for the little ones during the morning church service.

Scramblers

For children aged 2–3. Scramblers meet during the Sunday morning service initially in church with their parents, then they move on to their classes for Bible stories, crafts, songs, and prayer and play time.  Each week the aim is to build upon familiarity with one another, with Church and with the Bible.  This is a step-up from Creche and good preparation for Beginners.

Beginners

For children aged 3–4 years. Beginners meet during the Sunday morning service initially in church with their parents, then they move on to their classes for Bible stories, crafts, songs, and prayer.  Each week the aim is to explain the Bible to the children in a clear, passionate, relevant and fun way. It is hoped that by teaching the love and knowledge of the Lord Jesus, the children will not only enjoy coming to church but also begin to grasp hold of the great truths of the Christian faith.

Promiseland

For 5-11 year olds and comprises Little Splash, Big Splash & Promiseland Plus.

Little Splash is for children in Reception and Year 1 and meets during the Sunday morning service. Each week there are Bible stories, songs, memory verses, prayer, games, and small group time together.

Big Splash is for children aged 6-8 and meets during the Sunday morning service for Bible stories, songs, memory verses, prayer, games and small group time together.

Promiseland Plus is for children aged 8-11 and meets during the morning service for songs, memory verses, prayer, games and small group time.
