Focus is a chance for our church network to spend quality time together; to pitch in as a family, sharing food, receiving and praying for one another, and supporting each other as we go.

Our Kid’s Focus theme this year is THE WILD WILD WEST.

That’s right cowboys and cowgirls – God is WILD about you and has a great plan for your life! This year, the Focus Kids Village is going to be turned into a great big rowdy Western Adventure where we’ll be learning how to live God’s way, meeting Bible characters who were ‘outlaws’, while seeking out the most surprising rebel of all (who happens to be God’s son!).

Our Tent: 1–10s

(Morning only for 1–6s; Morning and evening for 7–10s)

Our Tent is a venue for children aged 10 years or younger who have any kind of additional need. We take ‘additional needs’ to mean requiring extra or different help from that given to other children of the same age.

Children who come to Our Tent will have one-to-one support, and they and their parents will be able to work out with their own special one-to-one helper how they would like to spend the sessions – in the Focus Kids programme or in Our Tent, or in a combination of these.

Our Tent will be led by great groups of leaders and helpers, and the activities will follow the Focus Kids themes.

We hope your child will have an unforgettable adventure with God throughout the Focus week. As well as having loads for the Kids to do, we also want families to enjoy Focus together. To find out more about all the Family Fun will be at Focus, check out our Families page.
