Zion United Church

Sharing Christs love in Frampton Cotterell Coalpit Heath & beyond

Weekly Activities (term time)

We have various groups that meet throughout the week. The aim of these groups is to give children and young people a positive experience of church and to allow the opportunity to meet Jesus and experience his story. Please see details below of the various groups we offer.


CRASH (Children Really Are Special Here): Thursday Evening; Zion United Church

CRASH is a children's group held in the church every Thursday from 5:30-7pm for people in school years 1-6. The evening is filled with crafts, games (some of which are very messy/things your mums would not let you play at home!), drama, Bible stories and challenges for each of us to follow each week. The evening is fast moving with noisy and quiet times and it is fun, fun, fun! There are lots of prizes and rewards and to finish off there is tuck. This is all for just £1 per child per week. If you are interested just come along and join us one Thursday or use the contact details below.

Explorers: Friday Lunchtime; Watermore Juniors

Explorers is a lunch time club that we run at Watermore Primary School every Friday during term time. We sing, watch DVDs and do various activities. Anyone from years 3 & 4 are welcome and we always have a lot of fun. A consent form is needed for this club so if interested please ask the School. 

Junior Church: Sunday Morning; Zion United Church

Zion's Junior Church meets during the Sunday morning 10:30 service. We spend the first half hour together with the adults and then at 11am the children and young people split into their groups where they follow a set programme designed for each age group.

Our main aim is to build young disciples. We offer opportunities for discussion and learning through activities which are relevant to each age group. In beginners they look at simple bible stories accompanied by an activity which will help it to come alive for them, then at the other end we have the 14-18 year olds who take those same bible stories but, through discussion, explore the principles within them and look at how they can be applied to life as a young Christian today.

The groups are: Beginners for those in school years R-2; Juniors for those in school years 3-6; RS2 for those in school years 7-9 and RS2+ for those in school years 10+.
