Blast Off Blazers is for children in Reception and Year 1 and it takes place in the upstairs rooms at Arise Church. We have a mixture of free flow activities, crafts, games, bible stories and lots of fun. We have water/juice and a snack. The team is made up of experienced volunteers including 2 qualified teachers. 

Time: 6:30-7:45 | Where: Arise Church


Blast Off Base Camp is for children in Year 2 up to Year 4, this takes place in the main hall of Arise Church. Here we watch the kids grow in confidence. Base Camp has a slightly louder and crazier atmosphere than what you might experience upstairs. It is a whirlwind of fun and adventure, with leaders who always bring a smile!

Time: 6:30-7:45 | Where: Arise Church


Blast Off Beyond is for children in Years 5 and 6, this takes place at The Source Youth Centre on Barnett Lane. As the kids are a bit older and wiser, we have a bigger, cooler club for them to keep growing. We have great facilities including a pool table, a dance machine, Xbox and a TUCK SHOP! The nights are fun filled and an exciting way to spend their Friday nights and learn about God. 

Time: 6:30-7:45 | Where: The Source, Barnett Lane


We also have occasional trips back to Arise to join as one big group for GIG nights. Blast Off offers a first come first served minibus shuttle run from Arise to the Youth Centre for those parents who have children at both sites, with an additional charge of £1.50 a night.

We have a fun-filled Blast Off session every Sunday.  As you arrive at the church one of the friendly team, in their wonderful purple T-shirts, will greet you. If it is your first time with us then please let us know. The children are encouraged to the front during the service countdown and are welcome at the front for the first song of the meeting, then the team will take the kids out to have a great time! 0-1yrs require adult supervision. 1 yr olds - children in Year 3 are supervised upstairs, and also have a snack and a short story followed by an opportunity to do a craft or play with our toys.  Children from Year's 4, 5 and 6 then go into the conservatory to the right of the stage.  Here the children get a snack and drink, play games, do crafts and learn from the bible linked to our Blast Off curriculum. Quieter rooms for breastfeeding are also available – just ask one of the team!


Little Stars!

Little Stars is a place in the week where Mums, Dads, Grandparents, and carers can come, sit down and meet up with others where the little ones are entertained with new friends as they enjoy craft activities, a song time, tea and probably the best toast for miles around (seriously!). We run every Wednesday during term time 09:30 - 11:15AM and it costs £1 per child plus 50p for any additional siblings. There is no need to book ahead, just come and have a great time. See you there!
