We really care about kids. At Re:Hope we want to see children learn the good news about Jesus, get to know Him as their Saviour and follow Him for their whole lives. We hope that babies, toddlers and families are happy and enjoy coming to Re:Hope.
We believe it is important for children to learn about Jesus in a fun, loving and safe environment. Therefore all our team members go through a process in order to serve. This includes a PVG check, an interview and yearly child protection training.
ON A SUNDAY
0 - 2 year olds have their own room with age appropriate toys, books and sensory play. We have nappy-changing facilities and a large main area. Kids are given space to play and a snack can be provided. There is also a baby feeding room by the main entrance with changing facilities where you can feed your baby in private.
Rachel leads the crèche and crèchendo teams. Her team have lots of experience in working with babies and toddlers.
ON YOUR FIRST VISIT
Registering your child is quick and easy. You can register on Sunday using a simple form with your details, your child’s details and an emergency contact number. We’ll ask about allergies, any medical details or other information that would be helpful for us to know about. If you are planning a visit, and have a spare two minutes, please register in advance.
We’ll need you to check your child in before leaving them in our care. Check-in opens in the crèche from 10.45am. One of our welcome team can show you were to go.
Some parents in our church like to keep their children with them during the service. It’s not a problem if you’d prefer to do this. Babies and toddlers love our crèche, however if your child is having a hard time being separated from you, we are happy to work with you to make you and your child more comfortable. If there are any issues that need your attention during the service, one of the crèche volunteer team will send you a text. Please remember to check out your child as soon as the service finishes.
The crèche and crèchendo teams are led by Rachel Millar. Rachel is a speech and language therapist. During the week she works with children with additional needs, so she has lots of experience with young children.
Rachel loves working with tiny people and watching them grow and develop. Within church kids’ work she believes kids should be loved, valued and cared for. She aims to see them loving God, learning about Him and worshipping him from a young age.
