Children's Work at HGBC

We are delighted to welcome Clair Connor as our Children and Family Worker. We are very pleased to have her as part of the team and look forward to seeing our Children’s work develop and grow as she leads and inspires all our amazing volunteers at HGBC.

Clair is a trained PE teacher and worked in the Stockport area for 8 years. As well as teaching PE she has worked in Primary Schools and has recently returned from teaching English as a foreign language in Italy.

Clair was raised in a Catholic family and became a Christian aged 22 and admits that at that point the Bible came alive to her. Since coming to faith she has volunteered in Heaton Chapel Christian Church and Gorton Evangelical Church. She has huge experience helping with young people’s clubs, mother and toddler groups and has taken children away on weekends away.

Clair believes that Christ is not just a story to be told but His life is applicable to our lives today.

 

Clair enjoys playing piano, going on different adventures and eating chocolate!

Clair says that at Hazel Grove Baptist Church we believe that children are the church of today. We have a full and active programme for children in Priamry School and younger,and there’s always loads going on ...

 

Sunday Mornings Energize

On the 1st Sunday of the month we have our Family Service, in which we aim to grow as a family, worshiping and learning together.

On the 3rd Sunday of the month we have Kids Church, where the children are together and learn about God through songs, stories, games and craft.

On the remaining Sundays Energize steps up a gear and we meet in small groups. Currently the groups are divided by school years from Pre-school to Year 6. We believe fun and friendship are at the heart of children growing in their relationships with each other and God. We love to see our Children make decissions to follow Christ, to please him giving them foundations that will last a life time.

For those under 3 years we have a crèche that runs during the Sunday Morning service. Find out more about Crèche

As well as heading up Energise, Steph also helps across other areas of the childrens work at HGBC and acts as a mentor to Lucy.

Other Events

We run other one-off events throughout the year. For example, we recently held a Family Pancake Party. We also run a Light Party at Halloween - we recognise that many children may want to go out Trick or Treating, but that many parents would rather they didn’t so we provide an alternative which gives both children and parents what they want.

We believe following Christ is the best decision everyone should make and making the choice froma young age sets you up for an amazing life with Jesus. Keep your eyes open for more details.
