At New Testament Church of God Leeds we believe in our chidrens' future and acknowledge that the children are the future. Children are more than welcome in all our church services.
Provision is there if required for children to join together in Chidrens Church from 11am on Sunday Mornings or Sunday School from 10am until 11am
Beyond Sunday we offer range of opportunities for young people of all ages to have fun and get involved in the work of God.
Life Builder's Young Men have recently celebrated their 1st Year Anniversary. Life Builder's Young Men are a group of guys, aged between the ages of 11-25, who currently meet every 3rd Thursday of each month. For the past year, this has given them an opportunity to spend time together and share their life experiences, build friendships and gain personal developmental skills they will need for life. Not only do Life Builder's Young Men meet on a Thursday but they also venture out on trips, throughout the year to various places and events across the UK. As we continue to meet together, we look forward to seeing how each individual continues grow as we encourage the younger members to become the best they can be too.
We believe that each child is important to God and very much loved by God. Our key verses are found in Jeremiah 1 v 5-7:
Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee, and before thou came forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations. Then said I "ah Lord God behold I cannot speak; for I am a child". But the Lord said unto me "say not I am a child."
As a Christian assembly our primary desire is to nurture, train and keep our children, young people and adults well-balanced spiritually, mentally and physically.
It is the primary disciple-making ministry within our assembly. It helps persons to grow in the knowledge and grace of God through regular and balanced studies of the scriptures.
Our Sunday School has a fun packed programme for the kids aged 3 to adult
We meet on a Sunday morning each week at 10am to 11am. Classes are taught by capable, committed team of DBR checked volunteer teachers, who impart the Word of God in practical and creative ways and inspire confidence in each student.
Our lessons are age-appropriate, with lively activities, fun crafts, and Bible stories for the juniors, and as they get older we teach them having a relationship with God and with His people - emphasizing God's grace, love, and forgiveness as free gifts to all people; and our loving response to those great gifts - loving God most of all, loving others as God loves us, being good stewards of God's great creation and continual giving of worship to our God and Saviour.
To us every child matters, and we welcome children and young people from diverse backgrounds
During the month of August each year, the children look forward to the Sunday School trip. This is usually a fun-packed event which is open to all students, parent/carers and friends. In September every year we set aside one Sunday to recognise and award each child for their Sunday School work.
If you have or know a child who would like to join us but don't have transportation, then we can pick them up! Please contact our church secretary for more information.
