Young people are vital to a healthy and growing church. Children and young people are welcome at any of our services and at other events in the week.

Sunday Groups

We make particular provision for children and young people at our 10.45 service. At other services toys and books are available, and you are welcome to use the Grove Room (with a live audio link) at the rear of the church if you need more space.

On the first Sunday of each month the 10.45am service in church is suitable for all ages and there are no children’s groups.

On other Sundays, groups are available for children under 12 years old at the 10.45am service. These groups often follow the topics that are being covered in the service. Children always begin in the service with the whole church before leaving for groups. You are welcome to keep your children with you in the service if you prefer.

Children over 12 years old are encouraged to remain in the service and worship with the adults.

Godly Play

On the 4th Sunday of each month, children 3-11 years are invited to Godly Play during the 10.45am service. Children begin in the service before coming together to experience a creative and imaginative approach to Christian nurture in another room. Godly Play uses symbols and objects as well as words and values, process, openness and discovery. It encourages Children to make meaning for themselves. For more information about the national programme that is Godly Play, click here.

Connect (11+)
