Thrive Juniors is our annual children’s worship event for primary school aged children from Reception to Year Six. Children and their leaders from across the area and different churches come and meet together to worship and celebrate the goodness of God. The vision for Thrive Juniors is to create an atmospheric venue where children can come and enjoy worshipping God with others their own age.

What takes place?

Worship, activities, games, refreshments, and creative zones, enabling a time of reflection and prayer. As the children take part in these activities, they will have opportunities to meet others from the surrounding churches.

For more information, please email Fiona Stutton, Thrive’s Children’s Ministry Adviser.


Who books places for children?

Parents book their own children’s places using our online form.

Do leaders need to book on?

Leaders book their own places using our online form.

Is there a cost?

The event is free but donations are welcomed.

Can I turn up on the day?

Ideally you would book in advance as this allows us to plan the event to accommodate the number of children coming and run as smoothly as possible, but yes you can.

Parents/guardians bringing children on the day would need to download our consent form and bring it completed. Parents will need to ensure that there is a leader from their church attending and that they are expecting their child.

If parents cannot bring a completed form on the day, they can complete one at the event when they drop their child off.

Leaders can bring children on the day, but they will need a hard copy booking form that has been completed by the child’s parent/guardian.

Can parents stay at the event?

Unfortunately, parents (who are not leaders at the events) cannot stay at the event for safeguarding reasons.

Can I bring a younger sibling/baby?

Unfortunately for safety reasons we cannot allow younger siblings at the event.

Can young people come along?

Young people in school Years 7-13 can come as a ‘Young Leader’ provided that the children’s work leader from the church is happy for them to.
