Olton Kids’ Club

Olton Baptist Church is for all and here are some of the ways in which we welcome children into our time together.  We’re a club, but one that’s open to all. When we meet for Sunday worship, the children go to OK Club for the first half of the service – if you are visiting, someone will gladly introduce your children to the Club leaders.

Crèche
Crèche is available for children aged 0-2 ½. It is fully staffed for the first part of the service, and has a large selection of toys.  This group provides a safe, fun and stimulating environment for the under 2 ½ year olds and is a joy to be involved in for our younger members of church.  Children in this group are collected by their parents at the appropriate part of the service (usually about 11.35).

Explorers
Explorers is for children from 2 ½ to Reception age. Through a mixture of Bible stories, crafts, singing, games, play and prayer, the young children are given the opportunity to engage with the stories in the Bible in an entertaining and fun environment. There is often plenty of enthusiasm in Explorers!

Adventurers and Voyagers
Adventurers is for children in school years 1, 2 and 3 – it’s lively, and combines different learning styles with fun and games to help the children understand more of the Bible.

Voyagers is for children in school years 4, 5 and 6 – the children are encouraged to think more deeply about Christianity, but still in an entertaining and fun way, using many different ways of learning.  Children in both Adventurers and Voyagers meet together for the Bible story, application and games, before moving into a small group with just those of their own age to for different activities that reinforce the Bible teaching.

OK Club Socials
Every term we hold an OK Club Social for children in Adventurers and Voyagers.  These are a great opportunity for children to have fun together and build friendships. We have been bowling, den building, had movie evenings, a Wii championship, and other things too.
