Children are not just the church of tomorrow, they are very much the church of today! The whole purpose of Xplode! is that children get a chance each week to discover more about Jesus in a fun, friendly, memorable and age-appropriate way.


On Sundays, children are put into one of our four teams depending on their age and according to their year at school. All of the groups meet in classrooms on a corridor near the hall where the adults meet.

GREEN TEAM - This is a group for pre-school children

YELLOW TEAM - This is a group for Reception and Year 1 children

RED TEAM - This is a group for children in Years 2, 3 & 4

BLUE TEAM - This is a group for children in Years 5 & 6


Yellow, Red & Blue teams have an altogether time with worship and a story from the Bible before splitting into their groups to complete age-appropriate discussion and crafts based around the theme for that week. Green Team enjoy free-play with a range of toys and a short DVD film.


Bring your child to the registration point where they will be given a coloured wristband with their name and a number on it. Parents will be given a corresponding card with the same colour and number. When all the children leave together during the service they go straight into their rooms.

PLEASE NOTE: At Hope, we can only accept 35 children into the Red & Blue teams and 18 children into the Green Team. Unfortunately this will be on a first-come-first-served basis. We are also not able to register children after 11am, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.


At 12:20pm you can collect you child from their groups. Parents are asked to remain outside the room and wait for their child to be handed over by a member of the Hope Kids team (wearing a coloured t-shirt).
