Restore Community Church is a growing community church, based in the North-East London Region and currently operates on three sites (two Restore congregations and one partnership with the Methodist Church).  
 
Children’s ministry at Restore is for children to encounter Jesus, to grow in relationship with God and with each other. Each child can explore how God made them in an environment infused with the Spirit. Relationships and fun are key to discipleship, as children discover how to follow Jesus for themselves.

Hearing God’s voice and obeying him is the basis by which we lead.
