Children and young people are a vital part of all we do at Hope.

We are excited to be a growing church and there is a great flow to our Sundays that help everyone to feel part of it.

Our current programme has the following structure:

Sunday Mornings

Young Hope

This is our exciting kids programme for 5yrs to 11yrs when the children go off to their dedicated space and enjoy music, quizzes, craft and stories all built around a theme which explores Christian faith in an age appropriate way.

Young Hope Crèche

We have an unmanned Crèche facility available throughout the morning with toys available to help keep the little ones entertained!

Young Hope +

Every third Sunday at Hope we run a special teaching session for all our teenagers. This takes place during the main teaching session for the adults from 11.30am to 12.00noon.

The topics are varied and relevant to the young people and this is a session where everyone can share their thoughts on the topic.

Activities during the week

Excite After Schools Club

Excite is our after school club for children in Years 1-6 and is run with Clifton Anglican Church. The sessions are from 3.30 to 5.00 pm every Thursday during term at the Hope Centre. There is no charge for the club but there is a tuckshop for penny sweets with a limit of 20p.

The club provides 90 minutes of fun activities after school. Excite is an open access club but there is Christian teaching available in most sessions. Activities include board games, craft and music. There are also organised games or activities, such as Dodgeball, Pictionary or team/individual challenges.

Numbers are limited and sensible behaviour is expected. To join us come along any Thursday after school. We will need a completed consent form with contact details.

Youth Table

The Youth Table is held every other Wednesday during School term time and provides a great atmosphere for young people to get together and have fun. It’s also an opportunity to explore life and faith issues in a real and creative way.

Youth Table is based around a meal so you don’t need your tea before you come along! We will provide hot food and drinks for everyone to enjoy.

At the Youth Table we are currently using Youth Alpha resources for our discussions.

All our activities take place at
The Hope Centre, Southchurch Drive, Clifton, Nottingham, NG11 8AR
