This is done in an exciting, loving and friendly manner involving music, drama, memorising Biblical verses and competitions.We strive to use our teaching style as a tool of motivation and discovering talents among the children.

The role of men in the body of Christ and the family is not only crucial but their leadership is critical to both. The Daniel Generation aims to develop the men in line with Daniel’s leadership, thirst for God and His will, being used as a man of influence in the Kingdom of God.
Prayer meetings are held once a month.
The role of women in the family, the ministry and the community has been crucial to the success of these units through the ages. At Croydon Tabernacle, we aim to build our women to be strong prayer warriors and passionate about their family, career and surroundings.
Monthly women’s prayer meetings are held to harness the power of God to pull down strongholds of sorrow, oppression and pain. Calendar events are organised to develop our God-given potential and gifting to ensure a balanced and prosperous lifestyle
CT@Home is the name for the house fellowship groups at Croydon Tabernacle, which meets every forthnight on Tuesday evenings. The house fellowship groups are where every member of the church can be reached and catered for personally. It is easier for a church to touch lives of its members in a practical way via small groups like the house fellowship than in a large gathering. House fellowships are a place of comfort, sharing, caring, provision, building friendships, building faith, support and companionship.
Some benefits of joining a house fellowship group include:
- You will begin to really feel like part of God’s family
- You will receive customized care
- You will not have to go through struggles alone
- You will have another forum to share Christ with friends, neighbours and work associates
- You can begin to understand the Bible better in a house fellowship group
We hope to see you and your family at a group soon. For more information about CT@Home Groups, please contact the Church Office
