What are Sundays Like at SEC?

Is there anything for my children/teenagers?

At our Morning Service, the children/teenagers start off in the main church and there is singing and a talk especially for younger children. After this there is a crèche if needed and the other children go into their various groups, Sun Seekers, C4C, where depending on the age group they have Bible Stories, craft and singing. The older young people go upstairs to F2G, where they study the Bible in a modern and relevant way. If your children don’t wish to go out to any of these groups then that is fine. We also have all age services at certain times of the year and everyone stays together in church for these.

Our Evening Services tend to be of a more traditional nature, but obviously children are still most welcome.
