Families

We love families!

We want our kids to know and love Jesus and church, so we do as much as we can to support families and kids to flourish and have fun at church – and at home across London.

For any more information or questions about families and kids work at Westminster Chapel, please contact our Families and Children’s worker Biola Akinyose at .

Sunday Kids & Youth Clubs

Every Sunday we run kids and youth clubs during the service (0-18yrs).

Children register in the foyer on arrival and join their groups during the break, after the worship. A sign will show on the screen to tell you when to collect them during the post-preach worship.

We love having our kids as part of our worship times and they are encouraged to dance and sing along. We don’t mind a bit of noise or an exploring toddler!

0-3 years: Creche

A super friendly team with toys, songs and a short story time based on a bible passage. Parents are welcome to stay to help their children settle in or leave them during the service. For those who choose to stay, wireless headphones are available so you can still listen to the service whilst in the creche with your child. For those who leave, you’ll be given a pager so we can buzz you in the event of upset or a nappy change.

3-5 years: Jumpstart

The fun steps up a level with games, crafts and bible story time with songs, dancing, and a memory verse.

6-11 years: Accelerate

Energetic games in our upstairs basketball court, short bible study and application chat followed by fun activities that reinforce the biblical message – I hear they even make cardboard forts sometimes!

12-18 years: Youth

Games and conversation about bible passages and relevant themes/topics to teenagers on their faith journey. Once a month the youth stay in the service to help them transition into adult church and have an opportunity to be on a serving team if they want to.
Toddler

Little Stars – Parent and toddler group

Little Stars runs term-time every Wednesday morning at Westminster Chapel, 10.15-11.45am, for babies to pre-school children and their parents. A range of toys, a cup of coffee and a warm welcome are always on offer to help you find community as a parent of little ones in the city.

New and Expecting parent support

We have a small group of members who have committed to pray for all our expecting and new parents confidentially and enthusiastically, with monthly updates from the parents if desired. We are passionate about wrapping the power of prayer around our emerging families.

Through Life Groups, families are offered two weeks of meal support when a baby is born, or a new child adopted to help them adjust. Yum!

Adoption Champions

We aim to be an adoption friendly church and have supported the work of the adoption charity Home for Good. Our Adoption Champions Mike and Becci Tan (who have adopted themselves) are happy to meet and speak with any adoptive, or potential adoptive families to offer some fellowship on their adoption journey.
