We believe in a God of love, grace and justice who wants to be friends with everyone not just adults. In fact we believe that adults can learn just as much about God from children as children can learn from adults. Because of this we try to create a community of love where children and adults are equal. Here at SBC children are free to explore the questions that are important to them and their lives through fun, laughter, chat, prayer and play, developing their discipleship in a way that is authentic to them, so that they might journey closer to God and make a difference in their communities. Children are not just the future of the church they are the church of today.

On average a school aged child spends 635 hours at school every year, in comparison If we assume that a child goes to church every single Sunday they will still only go for 39-52 hours a year (depending on the length of the service).
We believe that parents have a huge role to play in helping their children to grow in faith. You are the first point of call for your child, not the church and we want to help you in every way we can. Family devotions can really help not just your children but also yourselves in growing deeper in faith. Below you will find tips and advice on how to do devotions as a family, we are hopeful that these times spent together will help you grow closer to God as a family unit.
