Sunday Groups for Children & Teens

We have a range of Sunday School groups for different ages. Please see below for details of each of the groups. To keep up to speed please do email our youth worker Sandy at  to be added to our mailing list.

We take the well-being of our children and young people seriously at Newhaven Church and ask anyone who considers Newhaven Church a regular part of their life rhythms to please fill in one permission form per child or young person under 18

Little Lights (Pre-school)

The Little Lights group is for preschool children, and runs every Sunday except for the first Sunday in the month, when we hold our All Age Service. All children initially attend the regular Sunday morning service, leaving after the second hymn and going to the Little Lights room.

This allows parents with young children to relax and enjoy worship, in the knowledge that their little ones are in safe hands. We have the support of a loving and faithful team who are required to complete a Disclosure Scotland application for child protection before helping with the children.

Our aim is to ensure that the little ones, who Jesus viewed as so important, are cared for, to help them know about Jesus and the love he has for them.

Our time is spent having some free play, a bible lesson/story, craft, songs, games and a snack. Generally we have fun so if you have children of this age please come along you would be most welcome.

For further information please contact Jeanette Meek.

The Lighthouse (P1-6)

The Lighthouse is for children in Primary 1-6. This group runs every Sunday morning except for the first Sunday in each month, when we hold our All Age Service.

All children and leaders leave the church service together, after the second hymn and go to the Lighthouse room where we sing a few lively worship songs and then split into groups to continue our activities.

During Lighthouse lessons we explore the Bible in a fun and interactive way. This is done through a mix of stories, games, crafts and prayer. We welcome any child and the activities take place in a friendly and fun environment.

If you would like to find out more or would be interested in helping with this group please speak to Lynn MacNeill. We are looking for helpers who would be eager to help ensure that the children hear the message of Jesus.

09/11/2020 Sunday worship and Lighthouse currently requires an RSVP according to Scottish Government Guidance. We are asking that families RSVP each week by Thursday lunchtime. Please be in touch with our youth worker  Sandy.

Youth (P7-S6)

Youth is for older school children, in their last year of primary or in secondary school. This group currently runs on Sundays from 11:45am-12:45pm after the 10:30am service. The group runs every Sunday except the first Sunday each month, when we hold our All Age Service.

We meet every Sunday from September – June (except 1st Sunday each month which is an all age family service). If anyone would like to volunteer to help out you too would be made most welcome.

For more information please speak to our youth worker, Sandy Edwards, or email her at
