While you are enjoying meeting with God, you can be sure your children will have the same opportunity, in the capable hands of our kids’ teams. With groups for 3s, 4-5s, 6-8s and 9-11s, the fun, games, mess, singing and teaching is tailored to each group to ensure maximum enjoyment.
All the kids’ groups run a morning session each day, with the 6-8s and 9-11s meeting in the evenings as well.
Please note: All ages are calculated as of the first day of the Westpoint event.
The 3s at WESTPOINT is a fun place to be. We love to explore our themes through playing, arts, crafts, story times, and more. We set the room up with different play areas, ensuring our children encounter God in a number of different age-appropriate ways.
“The 3s was set up brilliantly, with some really thoughtful details that made it a brilliant experience for our daughter (who didn’t want to come but loved it!). The team were excellent with the children and the range of activities was great.”
This year, we’ll be exploring the theme of space! We’re going on an exciting adventure to discover a God who made the heavens, the stars, the moon and the sun! The sessions will include a range of activities including games, dramas, worship and more!
“The quality of kids work is incredibly high. We’re so blessed with the provision. God has really been working through the children’s workers. A big thank you to them all.”
“AMAZING! Our kids loved it in 4-5s!”
As a team, we left Westpoint last year buzzing with ideas and already decided on a ‘Space’ theme for this year. We will explore this theme by learning how much God loves us every day and how understanding this impacts who we are. We are excited to see the ways that God will meet with the kids, transforming lives that will influence our world.
“The kids loved their groups. Worship was a highlight for them. Teaching was great, both kids made first time commitments – great joy! Thank you for all the work put in.”
This year we will look at the God who created us and loves us personally, not just at our summer festival, but every day. We will explore who we are and how we live that out. We are looking forward to seeing our kids amazed by the God of creation who loves them personally, helping our children to realise they can influence our world.
“My children met with the Holy Spirit in amazing ways that is impacting them back home! Thank you so much for the hours of time and energy put in, it is having an eternal effect!”
The Ark will be running a group for any children who have difficulty accessing the mainstream kids or youth work, whether that is a result of care, physical, emotional or behavioural needs, or specific conditions. We have an experienced team so you can be sure your children are in safe hands. If your child attends a special needs school or has specific support to access mainstream school, then The Ark is here for you.
“The helpers were amazing.”
“Such a dedicated, highly caring team.”
Parent and Child Area
If you have a child under the age of 3, there is a venue especially for you (and them) with a live feed from the main meetings and seminars. Equipped with a whole host of toys and soft play, you can enjoy listening to the meetings while your little one has lots of fun.
“The team put on an outstanding event – thank you for working so hard and serving us all.”
“I got to meet, pray with, and serve alongside some amazing people on the 8-11s kids’ work team. I’d highly recommend it.”
– Timothy Wiles
