Who is KingZone for?
KingZone is an integral part of the King’s Church gathering where primary school aged children meet together. We believe that the children are important members of the church family and that together we are all on a journey to love and live like Jesus and we are developing as apprentices of Jesus.
KingZone is about supporting parents to inspire and encourage each child on their journey to develop their own relationship with Jesus. We know that we are all made differently and that God relates to us each individually, so we offer a variety of activities to help all the children as they grow.
We follow different themes each month. These themes are implemented through a variety of fun activities including craft activities, games and discussions in smaller groups. We believe in empowering the children in prayer.
Where and when does KingZone happen?
KingZone takes place on the top floor of the building. KingZone children usually go upstairs after a time of all age worship at approximately 11.15am, it is usually announced. You are more than welcome to bring your child up to the top floor at the start of KingZone where you can meet and speak to the leaders there. There are toilet facilities on the top floor.
If your child is upset or unsettled a leader or helper will come and speak to you in the main hall. The children are brought back downstairs by an adult at 12.30pm, if you need to leave quickly after the meeting, or even during the meeting, you can collect your child before this time from the top floor.

What happens in KingZone?
We offer a variety of activities following different themes each month. We generally introduce the theme for the morning all together and have a drink and snack. This is then followed by a variety of fun activities including craft activities, games and discussions in smaller groups. These smaller groups are often mixed in age, but occasionally they are in age groups.
Who is on the KingZone team?
At King’s Church we recognize the fact that the children need to develop their own relationships within the church family and we encourage the wider congregation to help with KingZone. Each team member that volunteers is DBS checked. The leaders and helpers for KingZone will be wearing yellow lanyards, please feel free to ask them any questions you may have.
Tracie Bradshaw-Mays works for King’s Church as the Inspire a Generation Coordinator who oversees the work of KingZone and crèche to inspire and support both the children and parents.
How to register your children
Please complete the Child Registration form available at the KingZone sign in desk in the foyer of the Schofield Family Centre. If a parent doesn’t intend a child to leave the main hall and attend KingZone, they shouldn’t sign them in. Signing children in is important for fire reasons and to ensure they are accounted for within the building. On subsequent weeks if a child registration form has already been completed then it is only necessary to sign in on the Visitor Registration Form.
If your child has any allergies, special needs of illnesses please let the leaders and helpers know at the start of the session.
In the event of a fire please follow the Steward’s instructions and do not try to collect your children. The KingZone and Crèche teams will escort the children to safety, although they may not leave the building unless necessary.
