Little Pebbles is a new all ability baby and toddler group at Avenue Baptist Church. We meet on Friday mornings during term time, between 10-12pm, and all babies and toddlers, with their accompanying adult, are very welcome. We provide a safe and happy environment for the kids to play, and the opportunity for mums, dads, grandparents, childminders – whoever the accompanying adults might be! – to relax and chat. All are very welcome!


FC Avenue -Wasps-Our five aside football teams for all children from the age of 8 to 13

Both teams take part in the local Football League of Churches on a Saturday morning between 11am and 1pm. We aim to have fun and learn a variety of new skills, all whilst playing and enjoying the game of football.

Avenue Youth Group – Once a month we join with other local church youth groups as part of the BLAZE network. We also organise day trips, weekend and summer holidays as part of our wider youth programme.


After an opening act of worship the children, young people go to their groups at about 11am. Beginners is for 2.5+ (not at school) and runs on all Sundays except the 2nd of each month, which is a family service, and all children are invited to stay. Super Stars is for all Primary school children during the morning service. They have games, songs, Bible stories, crafts and lots of time to meet friends and have fun! Meets on all Sunday mornings except the 2nd of each month, which is a family service. Footprints meet during the morning service. This is for all those in Years 7 – 9. We meet in the footprints Lounge upstairs and learn from the Bible how to live our faith out in radical ways.

Children under the age of 2 can stay in the church or their parents/carers can take them through to the ‘Venue’ where there are toys and space to relax. This is an unsupervised space but you can see and hear the service.
