                                        The Catch & The Crew  

                                                   The Catch is our Sunday school and runs                                             during the morning services at Appledore                                    Baptist Church for children aged 3-11.                                                     We use Scripture Union material to explore the Bible together in two age related groups (3-6's and 7-11's).

We have a dedicated team who work with the children and we believe that building relationships with the children is very important. A typical Sunday morning will include time in church, starting the catch with playing games, songs, interactive stories, a craft, prayer and learning a memory verse.

The Crew is a Sunday discussion group for those of secondary school age. We start within the main church service and then go out for a time of discussion, Bible study, hot chocolate drinking and biscuit eating!




We believe that children are very important and that Church should be an exciting place for them to learn more about God! We aim to make every session (whether on a Sunday morning or during the week) plenty of fun and a place for children to grow in their knowledge and love of Jesus in a safe and loving environment. Activities that occur on a weekly basis are:-

                                              Little Tiddlers

                                               Lots of fun for little ones and mums and dads too!                                                Little Tiddlers is a parents and toddler group                                                which includes lots of free play, crafts, songs and                                                stories. We run two sessions on a Tuesday during term time, the first from 9.15-10.30 and the second from 10.45-12.00. It costs £1 per family. Volunteers from the church help out at both sessions and we aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere where parents and children can build relationships and have fun!!

In both sessions healthy snacks and drinks are provided for the children and tea/coffee and toast is provided for the adults during snack time. In the second session we tell a story and both sessions have song time to end our time together. You can join Little Tiddlers on Facebook, click here!
