Children & Young People
Children are a very important part of the Church family and welcome at all of our services. We have a special children’s corner, Dragon’s Den, where they can play safely. In addition, there are special activities for them.
Our Family Service on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month
This is an informal service designed for parents and young children on the first and third Sunday of the month at 9.30 am.
We understand how difficult it is to keep children happy in church and for parents to feel relaxed. So this service lasts for less than 40 minutes, is very interactive and the children love the music, talk and activities
It doesn’t matter whether you’ve never been to church before or haven’t believed anything for a long time. We hope you will enjoy hearing why we believe that Jesus makes such a difference to life.
We get together afterwards for tea, coffee and cake!
The Family Service get together for various social events during the year, such as a late Summer BBQ and a Bonfire party. There are also occasional group meetings for the parents to get to know one another.
Some of our teenagers also meet occasionally at the vicarage to encourage one another in life and faith. If you’d like to know more, please use the contact form.
Confirmation classes for older children take place as necessary.
Our child protection officer is Margaret Russell (direct email here) and we follow all Diocesan guidelines for ensuring child safety.

Please note that the Family Service does not meet August.
Church is a family and that means anyone and everyone is welcome from the youngest to the oldest.
