Church Life 

Children & Young People

We have a small but growing number of children and young people who regularly join us at our 10.30am Sunday Service.

During term-time, the children and young people meet in their own groups at the same time as the morning service, learning together and sharing about their faith, using Scripture Union material and enjoying a variety of activities. We currently have two groups, one for those under 10 years old and a second group for 10 to 16 year olds. A crèche is available on these Sundays for the Under-3's.

The secondary school age young people meet one Saturday a month and also on the 1st Sunday of the month in term-time.

The younger children meet in the mornings of the 1st, 3rd and 4th Sundays (except Messy Church Sundays) during term-time. JuniorJames@10:30 is on the 3rd Sunday in months where there is no Messy Church on the 4th Sunday and is an opportunity for children to grow in their faith through story, song, crafts and activities.
Messy Church meets at 3:30pm in alternate months, usually on the 4th Sunday. There are no Sunday morning groups on a Messy Church Sunday. Please click here for our Messy Church page.

On the 2nd Sunday our 10.30am Family Service is enjoyed by many children of all ages, who take an active part in the readings, prayers and choosing of worship songs.

In the school holidays, our 10:30am Sunday services cater for all ages with a crèche usually available as well.

Busy bags are always available to keep any babies and young children, who may prefer to remain in the service, busy exploring interesting items.

During the summer we often hold a Family Fun afternoon - an event for people of all ages, with a range of activities for children and young people.
