A verse spoken over our children at Elim Coventry is Psalm 8:
"You have taught children and infants to tell of your strength, silencing your enemies and all who oppose you."
We aim to teach the children the authority and place they have in the kingdom of God, to help them to be released into their spiritual gifting and to develop a deeper relationship with God. To do this we have a range of activities available for the children on a Sunday and during the week.
Treasure Tots: For Children under 3 years. This is a room with a selection of toys available for the children as well as a Live link, allowing you as parents to hear and see the service whilst your child plays. (Headphones are available)
Powerhouse: Powerhouse is our kids church. We offer a full program each Sunday for children age 3-11 which run alongside the main church service. Children age 3-5 will have teaching on bible stories and children in years 1-6 will take these stories deeper into life application. We have a registration system for all children who come into Powerhouse. This opens at 10:40 -11:10.
Mid Week Groups:
Powerhouse Choir: The Aim of the choir is to encourage the children to grow in confidence and to develop a deeper understanding of what Worship is. Each session we take time to pray with the children and do a scripture reading, which then leads into a fun, energetic worship time as the children practice.

Connect+: We are an all inclusive ministry and see the importance in supporting children and families with additional needs. On a Sunday morning we have an SEN team who are ready to greet any child who may need extra care or support. We also provide additional activities to help the children engage to where they are at and a selection of sensory items for them to use throughout the morning. As well as a Sunday morning we offer a once a month group called Connect+ This runs on a Sunday morning and allows the parents to talk, pray, share and encourage each other, whilst their children are cared for by our team of amazing volunteers.

Spree Camp: Every year we take a group of children aged 8-11 away on a urban saints camp trip called Spree. This is a great time for the children to step outside of the church, learn more about God and meet new children.
All of our team on a Sunday and in our Midweek groups are DBS Checked.
