Children & Youth

Sunday School is offered on Sunday during the 09.30am service (term-time and some holidays). The childrenIMG_0900.jpeg and youth process into church at the start of the Eucharist, where they are welcomed with a blessing. Then they move to the hall for their own program, returning for Holy Communion.

We use the Godly Play programme in our Sunday School – a friendly and engaging method of teaching traditions and sacred stories.  It is suitable for all ages and encourages personal reflection without pressure to participate. Using Montessori-inspired resources these sessions are fun, relaxed and allow the young people to think for themselves about their own relationship with God and the stories of the Bible. They get to do activities of their own choosing, or further discussion as well. Please see the bottom of this page for the current schedule of topics.

Our youth are actively involved in the all-age services (usually 5th Sundays) and also participate in our annual nativity play
