Family Ministry

Family Ministry

Here at Erdington Elim Church we love children and believe that they are not the next generation, but the now generation and want to invest in their lives, both for the now and for the future.

Bring up a child by teaching him the way he should go,
and when he is old he will not turn away from it.

Proverbs 22:6

On Sunday mornings from about 11am during the service children aged between 2 and 11 will go out to their respective Sunday School Groups:

  • Bubbles – for children aged 2-7.
  • JAM (Jesus and Me) – for children aged 8-12.
  • Youth For God – for youth aged 11-18 (on the first and third Sunday evenings of the month).

All of our teachers, leaders and helpers hold current DBS certificates.

Bubbles

Children aged 6 and under are bubbling with life; everything is new, exciting and just waiting to be discovered.

We use Bubbles; a lively, colourful, interactive Bible based teaching resource, that uses play, Bible stories and related craft/activity work to help children develop a personal relationship with God.

The Bubbles group runs consecutively during the morning service.

Jesus And Me

We use the Click resources from Scripture Union.

The JAM group runs consecutively during the morning service.

Youth For God

At Youth For God, our vision is to bring young people in a relationship with God and to empower them to become God’s followers by sharing the gospel and the good news of God’s love everywhere they go.

We meet regularly on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month at 5:45pm, where we encourage our young people to bring their friends, play games, have coffee, snacks, chill and chat in a safe environment.

There’s a variety of activities including craft, messy games, table tennis, pool and of course just hanging out having fellowship together. We have a reflective time to learn about following Jesus in our present-day culture and to equip them to face today’s challenges.
