‘Kids Spots’ – Guidelines and Feedback

If you’re part of a church service that has kids, chances are you run some kind of kids/family spot as part of the service. Typically, this is a brief time where everything is aimed specifically at the kids and/or parents – though I’m aware that some churches attempt to make this the ‘everyone’ spot. It’s the time when things are a little lighter, a little more illustrative and engaging, and sometimes there’s even laughter!

There are many different – and good – ways to running these spots in your church. They can serve as a teaser for the main church teaching, they can be an introduction to a separate kids lesson, or something that simply stands on it’s own.
And then there is a variety of ways to engage with people that is only limited by the imagination: puppets, songs, memory verses, acting out stories, object lessons, videos…

In our own church, we’ve attempted to bring a bit of structure to our Kids Spots, with the aim to bring consistency each week , whilst still encouraging creative freedom (in our context, a different person runs this spot each week).

Here is a copy of our guidelines, which are attempting to provide a framework for what we do. Along with this, we’ve begun a feedback process, where I provide feedback to the presenter each week using the form below.

I hope this might be of some help to you. If you’ve got your own (better?) ideas of doing this, I’d love to hear them, also.
