Spring Convention Kids & Youth

This year’s Spring Convention is going to be a great time for everyone no matter your age.

Alongside the fun holiday club-style sessions for children aged 4 to 10 years, there will also be a youth stream for those aged 10-14 and an unmanned crèche with sound and visual is available for parents with 0-3s.

The youth and children’s streams will be looking at the same teaching themes as the adults in an engaging and age-appropriate way. There will also be crafts, games and other activities.

Register your children through this online form. Bookings will close on Wednesday 8th May.

Any questions please get in touch:

BCM’s Children’s Team is led by Kathryn working with Laura, Anna, Sarah and Pete. Our Youth Team leader, John will be co-ordinating the youth sessions. All have worked with children and young people for many years, both in schools and in more informal settings. They are really looking forward to sharing these sessions.
