Marshside Road Methodist Church

J Team and Creche

J Team

J Team meets each Sunday during the morning service. We are in Church for the first part of the service and then leave to go into the Lounge for our teaching about Jesus and the Bible. Children move up from creche into J Team when they begin school, they then move up to Teensceen when they go into Year 8 at High School. This means we have a wide age range (4 to 12) so we try to split into two groups for some of the time and target the lessons according to the age of the group.

We currently have about a dozen children in J Team and always have two leaders plus a helper each Sunday

We try to vary the programme and introduce new things for the children to enjoy whilst learning of the love of God and how to serve Him in the own lives


After discussion with some of the parents who have babies and toddlers it was decided to set up an organised creche on a Sunday morning. This was so if the parents wish they can leave their children in safe hands and stay in Church to worship. Parents are welcome to stay if they are unable to leave their children

We have seven leaders/helpers who work on a rota basis.

We have a short Bible story read by two of our young people from Teenscene, a craft to fit round the story and then sing some songs. There are also toys in the room for the children to play with.

Contact Doreen Gillam on 226430 for more details, all children are welcome.
