Children & Youth

We are blessed with a good number of children in our church and value each one of them as a gift from God.

ICF Kids

Creche.  We have a creche to cater for babies to the age of three, we have lots of fun singing songs about God, using instrument’s and dance. There is lots of opportunity for the children to sit and relax, to jumping around being very creative with crafts we have for them to use.
 
Kids. We run a ‘all together’ ICF Kids for children aged 3 and up to age 10/11.  Our focus is to teach the children on the stories of Jesu and other characters of the Bible, with use of crafts, songs, DVDs and puppets.
 
Olders is our final stage up from children aged 10/11 to 14. Our focus is teaching children about people’s journey with God in the Bible. The children will be encouraged, challenged & inspired.
 

Youth

youthWe have a youth programme that caters for young people from the age of Primary 7 (age 11) and right through their teenage years. Our youth group meets on 2nd & 4th Sunday of the month in the evenings. They enjoy chilling out together, eating food, and having a laugh. They grow together as young Christians through engaging in worship, prayer, getting into the Bible and discussing issues relevant to them.

Child Protection

We operate a Child Protection Policy according to Government guidelines, and are kept up to date on current legislation by membership not only with the Government Body in Scotland (CRBS), but with an organisation called the Churches Child Protection Advisory Service (CCPAS). All our volunteers, helpers and teachers have been through the PVG Disclosure procedure.

Within our team we have people who are qualified in first aid and we have a special “emergency” call on standby. We want our church and our Children’s Ministry to be a safe, relaxed environment that children will enjoy and that adults will feel comfortable with. We operated a signing in and out procedure for the children in crèche and sparks, and pathfinders.
