The team in Loughton is led by Chris King and a fantastic team of volunteers, who are committed to Jesus and to loving our kids and seeing them grow. They are DBS checked and follow Restore’s safeguarding policy.
We work with families to understand each child’s needs and do all we can to provide ways of helping everyone engage with God and his family. Please speak with Chris if your child needs particular assistance because of developmental or physical challenge.

3 to 11 years
On Sunday mornings we worship all together in big church, then meet in age-specific groups for 45 minutes.
To register your child (including special needs and health information), sign up is in the main foyer from 8:50 – 9:10 for the 9am service and 10:50 – 11:10 for the 11am service.
Families stay together during worship, then, when directed by the service leader, children make their way to groups – follow the umbrellas!
At the end of the service (10:15 or 12:15) children are collected. Please follow the directions of the Restore Kids team and bring your security tag with you. We can only release a child to someone with the corresponding tag.

Our aim is to provide a space for girls and boys to grow their relationship with Jesus and with each other through games, craft, prayer activities and discussions.
