New Horizon has always seen working with young people as a vital and rewarding part of the week. Different programmes are geared to appropriate ages and cover from Creche through to, (and including) 18 years of age. Training is undertaken by everyone supervising or with involvement in any part of the Youth Programme and all such are Access NI checked.
New Horizon adheres to a Child Protection Policy and is registered with AccessNI to carry out relevant checks on volunteer staff.
The Crèche & SU Programme are for use only by children whose parents are attending the Morning Bible Teaching and/or Seminars. It would be appreciated if parents using the crèche over 5 mornings would offer to help on one morning. Click here to volunteer
Salt Factory Sports are providing a fun-filled programme for children in P5-P7 on Monday to Friday evenings this year from 7.15pm to 9:15pm.
The On the Edge team will be running both the morning and evening programmes for Y8 – 11. Young people wishing to attend both must be registered in On the Edge :am AND On the Edge :pm.
The Livewire programme is geared for Y12-14 but those going into Y11 may attend.
Young people are allowed to attend Livewire & On The Edge without their parents at New Horizon. The young person’s parent should sign the consent form, but they will need to give the name of a responsible adult attending New Horizon such as their youth leader or parent of a friend.
Children must wear their badges or wristbands while at events. Parents must indicate at registration whether or not their children have permission to leave events unaccompanied.
Parents collecting children at the end of events should do so as promptly as possible.
Sometimes photographs or video clips are taken during the children and youth activities to be used for publicity purposes. If you have any objection to photographs or video footage of your child being taken please tick the relevant box on the application form. New Horizon Child Protection Policy
