An exciting time where children of pre-school and primary school age are taught about Jesus. Children have fun together in an all-age setting taking part in songs and games, then in their classes stories, crafts and other activities.
A crèche is available for children under two.

Current Sundays
As Bethany is not meeting due to the Coronavirus outbreak, new content will be added to this page each week. We are hoping this will help parents (if you are not too exhausted from a week of home-schooling!) to sing some songs, read some bible stories, listen to some videos and download/print some fun activities.

We pray all families stay safe, healthy and connected with God at this time.

Take care,

from all the ARK teachers and helpers.

Dear Jesus,
You are our source of life.

You paid the price of our sins, so we don't have to.

Thank you for the stories of Esther, Deborah and Rebekah - women who listened to you and obeyed you wholeheartedly.

Help us to live in the same way.

We love you Jesus.

Every day, I make choices that honour Jesus.
