Young People

Children of all ages are welcome in our church.

We know that children often make a noise; we know they’re never still for long; we know they like to wander and explore. That’s all fine. Jesus welcomed children, and so do we – and you don’t need to be embarrassed if they make their presence obvious.

If you do find yourself wanting somewhere else to go during the service, the Trinity Room (at the back, in the corner) is normally free. It isn’t staffed, so you’ll need to stay with your child yourself. There are a few toys in there, and the service will be relayed on a speaker so you won’t miss what’s going on.

In addition to Sundays, we regularly offer the following (although these are just now re-commencing following the pandemic so please follow this website for more information on dates and times)

Stepping Stones - reopening 13 Sept 2021

This weekly group for pre-school children and babies with their parents and carers meets in the Trinity Room in Church at 9.45am on Mondays, and we are hoping to reopen on Monday 13 September subject to the COVID situation. The purpose behind this group is to give children an introduction to church in an informal way. Many of the children coming have already had a contact with church through baptism and this is an excellent follow up. There is no charge.

BIONYC - keep an eye out for updates

BIONYC is the Believe It Or Not Youth Club. We are hoping to reopen in the new school term. It is normally held on Mondays after school in Church. Designed for 8-16 year olds, under 8s are welcome with an adult. We start from 3.15pm with a welcome drink & snack, followed by board games to suit all ages. We then follow a theme through a story and craft activities. Within an hour you will have made friends, enjoyed making things to take home and shared a story and games together! There is no need to book. Just come along with your family and friends. There is no charge but donations are welcome.

Messy Church - keep an eye out for updates

Hello to all our Messy Church family! 😄 We hope you are all well and have managed to keep yourselves happy, healthy and busy during these long months of lock-down. Unfortunately, although the Church is now allowed to open for regular services, Messy Church gatherings are still a little way off. Please keep an eye on the website for updated information.

Baptism and Confirmation

We welcome children of all ages to be baptised and from 11 years of age to be confirmed.
