Babies and toddlers are always welcome to join us in the main service! There is also a children’s corner with toys for those who would like to use it.
We have three different Junior Church groups for different age ranges that meet during the main service. Nursery-age children (3-5 years) meet in the Blue Beetle hall (next to the church) with Amanda Hughes.
5-7 year-olds meet in the small church hall (round the corner) and over 7’s in the large hall with our children’s worker Jacqueline Sulenski. Activities include art, music, dancing, bible stories and prayer.
Once a month we all gather together in St Mary’s church for an all-age service. And when it’s Junior Church Takeover Sunday, the whole service is run by Junior Church!
The youth choir sings at our Sunday Eucharist once a month, and studies under the Royal School of Church Music ‘Voice for Life Scheme’.
Choir members take part in other events organised by RSCM, including the annual festival of young voices and singing Handel’s ‘Messiah’ at the Albert Hall!
The Youth Choir rehearses on Thursdays in term time, 6.45-7.30pm in the choir vestry. We are always looking for new voices; please contact Penny Davison if your son or daughter would like to be involved!
Acorns is our popular parent and toddler group that meets on Mondays in term time from 9.30am-11.30am in the Large Church Hall, run by our children’s worker, Jacqueline Sulenski.
There is no need to be a member, and no waiting list to join—so come along!
