Children & Youth

Junior Church meets during our10:30am Service (please note there is no Junior Church during the All Age Service on the 1st Sunday of the month). We also have a Friday pre-school group and a youth group which is held every Friday evening during term time.

We have groups to cater for children from the ages of 0-14 with fun activities, crafts, games and teaching from the Bible. If you've not been before, please do bring your children along so they can try it out. For more details please keep reading and if you have any questions please contact James at 

Arrangements for Junior Church

We begin our time together in the main Church Service with the rest of the church family. Junior Church then go through to the Church Hall a few minutes after the start of the Service. Our time begins with Altogether Time which is led by one of the Junior Church Team and is always a great chance to sing some favourite songs (usually with actions!) and recap on teaching from the week before. We then split into four different age groups for the remainder of our time together. At the end of the group time we go back into the main Service. Parents are welcome to leave their child in any of the groups to be looked after by the leaders who all hold up to date DBS clearance. However, if they want to stay with their child to help them settle that’s also fine.
