Children and Youth Streams
For older children and young people we have streams led by enthusiastic young adults experienced in working alongside this age group and are familiar with the issues they live with.
- Crèche for children under reception age
- Little Fishes for reception to year 2
- Brightlights for years 3 and 4
- Living Waters for years 5 and 6
- Ignite for years 7 and 8
- Chosen for years 9 to 10
- Revelation for years 11 to 13
At the closing Mass the streams will lead the conference in helping us all to reflect on the readings and they will lead us in prayer and worship. Parents can relax, knowing that their children will be enjoying their streams.
Children in the crèche must be accompanied at all times.
