Creche runs on a Sunday morning during the morning worship.
Organised by Angela Wilson & Gillian Craig, there are always at least two people operating the crèche each week.
The crèche use the small hall – follow the path round the side of the church, and the small hall is on your left as you come into the hall.

We take child protection seriously, and ensure that adequate training along with SCRO (Scottish Criminal Record’s Office) checks are completed
by all of our volunteers with children and young people.

Children’s Groups
We offer a number of groups and activities for those of primary school age.
Junior Church – or Sunday School as many will remember it, runs during Sunday morning worship – from 10.50 a.m. and has groups for children from 3 – 11 years of age.
The children usually join in the last part of the service each week, and then return to their parents. However, on the last Sunday of the month they share in the Family Service,
joining for most of the service, with activities in the hall part of the way through the service.

Junior Church use the large hall – follow the path round the side of the church, and the large hall is on your right as you come into the hall.

Brownies & Rainbows meet in the church hall and the local community centre.

Junior Boy’s Brigade cater for boys in Primary 4 – 6. They meet on a Wednesday night from 7 p.m.
Anchor Boy’s are for boys in Primary 2 & 3. They meet on a Wednesday night from 6 p.m.
An Explorers Group has been running at Paradykes Primary for over a year now, giving youngsters the opportunity to meet during lunch time and explore the Christian Faith. The group has always been over-subscribed, and more recently we have added a group for Primary 5 at Paradykes and a group for P5-P7 at Loanhead Primary. A group of volunteers work alongside the church’s Children’s worker to run these groups. They are use a range of Scripture Union material exploring Jesus and his ministry.
