Children and young people on a Sunday


Children and families are warmly welcome to church on Sunday mornings at 10.30am before our Junior Church groups start at 10.45am, starting with games, then finish at 12 noon. We have six different groups for children and young people that meet each Sunday morning that are always ready to welcome those new to church. Junior Church often follow the same theme for the month as well as celebrating Christian festivals, the teaching and activities being relevant to the particular age group.

Occasionally children and young people and their families all meet together in church from 10.30am to 12 noon for an All Age Service rather than in their separate groups.
