Gems (0-2s)



Come and join the team!


As part of the amazing Gems team, be prepared to have encounters with God and to play, pray and engage with our under 3s, introducing them to the presence of their Daddy God. Our team is as varied as the Gems themselves. We show love and respect for one another and everything we do and say is child-targeted and age-appropriate. Our team is one of support and encouragement and our heart is for both children and team to experience God in a way that is relevant and inclusive in a welcoming, loving environment.


What's a typical day like?


Our first session is on the second day of the event. We start at 8.50am and finish at 12pm each day, with a mid-week rest day. We follow strict checking in and out procedures to ensure the children's safety.
Pearls (0-1s): There will be time for worship, nursery rhymes and playing while praying over the children and providing plenty of opportunities to be in God's presence. Breastfeeding mothers are more than welcome to pop in.
Emeralds & Opals (1-2s) / Sapphires (2s):- As a team we are passionate about bringing the children into God’s presence through play, storytelling, worship, nursery rhymes, snacks, crafts and interactive prayer ministry and worship.
