Children and Young People

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.  

Messy Church - several times a year we "do church" in Kingsclere Primary
School hall.  Crafts, activities and a short celebration followed by a hot

meal that we share.  Keep an eye out for dates on the calendar.

Children are welcome at all of our services and events.  There are lots of things that are planned specifically with our young people in mind.  Come along and try them out, we'd love to meet you.

ABC - a monthly informal worship service at St Mary's, Kingsclere (approx 20 minutes) for pre-school children and their carers.  Followed by refreshments, toys and time to chat. 

Toast for Tots - a weekly (during term time) meeting of pre-school children and their carers in the Kingsmill Room (side room on St Mary's Church).  No service just plenty of toast and time to play.  Songs at the end of the session if you want to stay.

Creche - during the 9.15am service each week in St Mary's (apart from

3rd Sunday when families worship together in our all-age service) there

are toys and mats out which children under 3 are welcome to use. 

It is unmanned so we ask parents to stay with their child, but feel free to

move around as necessary.

Splash (age 3-8) - our Junior Church groups in St Mary's meet every week
(apart from 3rd Sunday when families worship together in our all-age

service). 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.  

Grid (age 9-12) - our Junior Church groups in St Mary's meet every week (apart from 3rd Sunday when families worship together in our all-age service).  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.  

 

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.  

 

Summer Holiday Club - for the last two summers,
a team of volunteers have worked in partnership
with our friends at Pulse Ministries
 to run a week-long
holiday club in St Mary's for children aged 5-11.  Full
of fun and games, bible stories, songs and of course
the famous "gunge tank" we've had a ball!
