Online Family Resources
Each week we provide two resources for families to use.
In the Family Resource Pack we explore a story or theme using a story from the Bible. We will suggest activities to do, worship songs to use, explore different ways of telling the story and give you some prayer ideas. There is no set way to use this material, so use in whatever way is helpful to you and your family.
The QPLive Activity is designed to use with your family as part of QPLive on a Sunday. It will help you explore Sunday’s teaching theme together.
We realise that not everyone will have access to a printer so please contact Mairi (firstname.lastname@example.org) if this is the case. We will try to keep the craft activities simple using paper, paper plates, felt pens, glue sticks and some bits and pieces you hopefully have lying around the house. I suggest you don’t rush to empty your recycling bin as there will be some junk modelling ideas.
We’d love to see how you are using the resources so please upload your photos onto Instagram and tag us in them (@queensparkbc).
Each week we will put an updated link for each resource.
A life of faith & adventure
We believe in creating a place where children belong; where they are loved and appreciated, safe and comfortable; where they know they are important members of the church family and God’s kingdom. We are passionate about equipping, encouraging and supporting children and families for a life of faith and adventure.
On Sunday morning our children have fun and flourish in the following groups:
- Creche 0–2 ½ years
- Beginners 2 ½ – 4 years
- Building Blocks Preschool year – P1
- Kingdom Kids P2–P6
- Parenting Lounge available for parents and children up to 3 years
- Step Out 3–11 years

Playbreak is a toddler group with a difference – it aims to give parents/carers a much-needed break. Have a coffee and chat to other parents/carers in the tea/coffee lounge or enjoy a few minutes’ peace in the quiet lounge while your children play in separate rooms. The children are cared for by a team of volunteers (all helpers are PVG registered) in the creche (under 2s) and the hall (2–5 years).
To ensure everyone has a safe and fun experience we have a limit of 15 children in creche and 35 children in the hall per session (first come, first served). Find out more by visiting our Facebook page @PlaybreakQPBC.

It includes a long creative time to explore the biblical theme through a variety of activities; a short celebration time involving story, prayer, song and similar; and an afternoon snack together. All elements are for people of all ages; adults and children.
When do we run: Third Saturday of every month (except June) 2–4pm
Venue: alternate months at Partick campus and Camphill campus – check the events calendar for the next event.
