Children and Young People
Children are welcome at all of our services and events.
On Sundays, we have activities for children every week. One Sunday per month everyone worships together and there are activities and songs that children will enjoy alongside their families. On the other Sundays our Junior Church groups meet. The children start in the main body of the church with their families and then go out to their groups during the first hymn. If you are visiting or have not registered your child in the past please come with them so the leaders can take your details before dropping your child off. If you have younger children you are welcome to bring them out to Junior Church, but we ask that you stay with your child if they are under 3 years old.
Young People aged 12+ - our youngsters (many of whom are members of the youth bible study) prefer to stay in the service and tend to volunteer with the technology - they sit together in their own area and make sure the sound equipment is working properly. If you'd prefer to stay in the pews and join in with the worship that's fine too - whatever you feel is right for you.
If you have very young children with you who don't want to go out to Junior Church that's absolutely fine. If you want to take them out of the pews there is an area at the back of church with toys and activities to keep them busy!
Youth Bible Study - This group for young people of secondary school age (age 11-18) meet each Thursday in term time for bible study, snacks and drinks in the Kingsmill Room (St Mary's Church). They have recently enjoyed a Youth Alpha course and attended conferences and away days together. If you are already a Christian, if you have questions or if you have no bible knowledge at all come along and learn about Jesus while having fun with people the same age.
Summer Holiday Club - Full of fun and games, bible stories,
songs and crafts, we had a blast at this year's "WonderZone"
summer holiday club for children aged 5-11. We hope to be
able to run similar activities in 2022, so please watch this space!
