Sunday School & Children's Ministry
For children ages 2-12 years
We recognize the importance of creating an environment in which young children can learn the scriptures and worship God.
The ministry features age-appropriate worship format and presentations of God's word in a child-friendly atmosphere, as also activities in a non-Sunday School Ministry called Children in Action (CIA).
Children remain in the main service throughout corporate praise & worship, and then go to Sunday school immediately following the receiving of offerings.
Small groups of up to 20 persons who meet weekly for prayer, bible study, and fellowship.
We recognize the need for members to be vitally connected with each other. Members and guests are encouraged to attend cell meetings once per week. Mutually beneficial relationships are forged and there is opportunity to better understand the scriptures through group discussions facilitated by knowledgeable group leaders. This is also an excellent forum for sharing testimonies of God's goodness and to pray about challenges faced.
The groups are located in various locations throughout the Kingston metropolitan area, including on University Campuses.
Meetings are generally held on Tuesdays between
7:00 pm - 9:00 pm.

God Centred is a ministry of the Christian Life Fellowship (CLF) Youth Council, led by the Director of Youth and Young Adults. It includes High School Tours, On-line ministry and an annual God-Centred Conference.
It is aimed at Youth and Young Adults. The purpose of God Centred is to influence and challenge Jamaican youth to wholeheartedly centre their life on pleasing God. This, we believe, is a journey. It starts with an understanding of the life of Jesus Christ through the preaching of the Gospel, as written in the Bible; an acknowledgement and acceptance of Him as Lord; and a commitment to spiritual growth through membership and active involvement in a local, Bible-believing church.
The idea first emerged in 2008 from the Council’s outreach work among youth, who they recognized needed help and support to navigate many challenging issues including: poor parental and family support and guidance; financial difficulties stress related to their academic performance stress related to their social and emotional well-being, particularly the need for approval from their peers; the pressure to have an intimate partner and to be sexually-active; managing issues related to sexuality such as sexual identity and orientation; pregnancy and the challenges associated with contracting a sexually transmitted infection (STI).
This ministry provides a forum for voluntary participation of individuals looking for support from others in various issues including grief, loss etc.
This ministry aims to ensure support of discipleship through a vibrant program of intergenerational mentorship.

This ministry seeks to ensure whole-church evangelism effort directly in the community, and indirectly through men’s ministry, women's ministry, youth ministry etc.

This ministry seeks to enhance the welcome experience of guests through Hospitality, New Visitor welcome (Barnabas Ministry), First touch (greeters/ushers), a Nursery, and a Home Away from Home program for university students.
This is part of the work of our Diaconate focusing on support for the needy and vulnerable.
"Through this church I (The Lord) will affect the nation, the Caribbean, and other lands. I (The Lord) will send men and women from this church to other lands to establish works there to thrive."
