Children and teenagers

Children and teenagers @ Christ Church Trumpington


We love having children and teenagers at CCT and value them as part of our church family. We believe that they are precious to God and known and loved by him. So we welcome all children and teenagers who come to CCT and, together with them, we want to learn and experience more of God.


On Sundays our whole church family meets to worship God together for about 20 minutes. We then have a short break before different aged-groups begin:


EXPLORE is held in the same area as the crèche and is for pre-school aged children


ENCOUNTER is our group for children from Reception to Year 3
Ignite IGNITE is for those in Years 4 – 5
ACCELERATE is for children in Years 6-8
Fusion FUSION is for those in Years 9 – 13.  Fusion also meets once a month on Sunday evenings for fun, friendship, and to explore the Bible and big issues in life.
A CRÈCHE for babies and young children is available from the start of the service.


Once a term, there are no separate groups apart from crèche for the youngest children, and instead the whole church stays together for an All-Age Service.


The children’s safety is really important to us.  We therefore work to a safeguarding policy which is registered with thirtyone:eight and is available to view on request at the church office.  Two members of our church are designated as safeguarding co-ordinators and are responsible for ensuring that this policy is followed.  Any adult working with children and teenagers at CCT has undergone a DBS police check.

Our policy statement on safeguarding is here and our safeguarding co-ordinators can be contacted at
