Youthworks


We would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to the youth work at SBC.

All our children’s & youth workers are DBS checked and follow the guidelines set out in our child protection policy. A copy of this is available on request.

Sunday Clubs…

…get together at about 11.15am, after half an hour all together as a church family. The children, and the leaders for that week, then leave for their appropriate classes.  Sunday Club (School Years Reception to Year 6) and the Crèche for pre-school children are held upstairs and conclude at midday to coincide with the end of the Morning Worship. Sunday Clubs use Scripture Union Light teaching resources.  A group for 11-16’s, “Bible Bashers”, is held at the same time downstairs.

 


 

…is an after-school club for years 1-4 on Monday afternoons during term time. Run by the church, there are plenty of fun games, crafts and other activities linked to a weekly story from the Bible.

 


FreeZone…

…is our new venture for the kids at the very nearby Soham Village College (SVC). Taking place on a Monday afternoon; straight after school from 3-5 pm and run with help from the local Newmarket YFC group, we provide a fun, safe and engaging place for kids to “Hang-out” on their way home from the college.

 


Jellytots…

…is a drop-in for parents & carers on Wednesday mornings during term-time. We run from 9:15 to 11am in the Upper Room of SBC. It’s a great opportunity to call in for a coffee and a chat in a friendly and informal setting. Parenting, grand-parenting and child-minding can be a stressful job, so take the opportunity to come along to get a break, meet other people and often find some food for thought.

The leaders are Jess, Elizabeth & helpers. Please speak to them for further details.


Buzz…

…is a group for school year 6 and above for those who are seriously interested in exploring the Christian faith. Buzz meets on Friday evenings from 7:15  to 8:45 pm at SBC and goes ‘out and about’ for some of the fun activities (occasional late finishes). The weekly meetings alternate between serious Bible study at and fun events.

The leaders are Dave, Kathryn, Matt & Debbie.


Youth Policy

We take seriously our responsibility to protect and safeguard the welfare of children and young people entrusted to our care. The church is committed to:

Content of our Youth Policy

The church recognises that many children and young people today are sadly the victims of neglect and physical, sexual and emotional abuse. As an organisation working with children, we have a responsibility to act if abuse comes to light and, as far as possible, to protect children from the possibility of being abused within the church. Accordingly, the church has adopted this Youth Policy which sets out agreed guidelines relating to the following areas

The content of this policy is applicable to all youth activities carried out by the church and is fully endorsed by the leadership team and church members’ meeting. The church recognises the need to build constructive links with the child care agencies. Accordingly, these guidelines have been prepared in consultation with Cambridgeshire County Council Social Services Department and PCCA’s Churches’ Child Care Protection Advisory Service*, who hold a copy of this policy.

* PCCA Christian Child Care are an interdenominational organisation who have been advising churches on issues of abuse since 1983.
