We are glad you are taking time to explore all we have for you.
We believe every child is a gift from God, and that parents and the wider community have significant influence on their development. For us taking charge of caring for God’s children, we have a duty of care first to God, then to the parents, to the church and to the wider society. As a team, we are all committed to helping little ones develop godly lives and their potential by creating a fun and exciting environment for them to enjoy.
We invite all children to know Christ in a way that transforms their daily lives and lives of those around them in a real way. Our prayer is that each child will build lasting friendships and make a godly and positive impact in their community. We love to welcome new members and we do all we can to help them settle into our church family. Finally, through the help of the Holy Spirit, our prayer is to make an eternal impact on the life of every child that fellowship in CLC.
The CLC children ministry is for children aged 2 to 12 years old and sessions run on Sunday mornings. We have a crèche class for ages 2 to 4/5 years (reception years) and Children’s class 5yrs (school year 1) -12 years old.
Children are so valuable to God that He commands us to protect them. We have a Child Protection Policy for all our activities, and our volunteer workers are routinely DBS checked. Our Safeguarding policy applies to all volunteers, board of trustees, paid staff within CLC and anyone acting on behalf of Christian Life Centre.
Summer Play scheme
Molding believers, influencing the world
We run a summer play scheme for two weeks every August which accommodates children from ages 4-12 years old. The first week includes daily activities and trips around Oxfordshire and nearby counties. The second week includes a residential trip. The play scheme is opened to the whole community and the costs are kindly subsided by the church.
