Weekdays for Children
All children’s and youth work in Crown comes under the umbrella of the Safeguarding Policy of the Church of Scotland, this holding out a safe and happy environment for activities.
Two uniformed organisations are based in the church halls. For girls there are Brownies and Guides, and for boys Anchor Boys, Junior Section and the Company Section of the Boys’ Brigade. These are flourishing companies, ably led and to an extent bursting at the seams in terms of membership!
In addition, regularly in the Halls we have Parent & Toddler groups (Wednesday and Thursday, and a Polish-language group on Friday); and on Saturdays we have a regular letting arrangement with Theatre FX.
Our contacts with local schools and other youth organisations are well developed. For the local Crown Primary School, where the Minister is the Chaplain, we have set up a very popular after-school club, “Crown Corner Club”. ABreakfast Club also operates out of the church halls. We have strong contacts also with Millburn Academy. And there are two local Scout troops, Crown and Kingsmills, the former originally set up by the church but nowadays meeting in its own premises.
To support worship, a Youth Band was started – a group for younger instrumentalists and singers who might enhance the worship of the church (and of Café Church). It rehearses usually on a Sunday, though not every week. For more information please contact the church office.
The Crown Church Band, mostly for adults, is a wind and brass group which rehearses on a Monday evening, but on occasion has been delighted to welcome younger members. Instruments can be loaned, and tuition given. This Band plays frequently outside the church walls, in all sorts of community settings.
