Children and Families

If a picture is worth a thousand words – there should be about 5000 above.

Children are very important to God, over and over in the bible it is children and young people that he calls to do important things. We want to make sure that children have the opportunity to explore the Christian faith (and have a lot of fun too). At the same time families are under all sorts of pressures and we want to support them too.

Sundays for children and young people

Twice a month, early morning before the 10.00am service we have our Breakfast Club for Years 67891011. Crèche and Seekers ages 0-10 meet as part of the 10.00am morning service.
Every 2nd Sunday our Family Service is at 11.15am with all ages worshipping together. (Coffee is served before in the Church Hall from 10.30am)

Weekdays

Every Wednesday afternoon in term time Tiny Tots for pre school children, their parents and carers meets in the Church Hall. Each week our uniformed organisations meet: Rainbows, Brownies, Guides, Rangers and Beavers, Cubs, Scouts. Their page is here.

Special Events

Holiday Club meets one Tuesday of every school holiday for Primary school children. A number of Family Events are held during the year; these are times for families to play and explore together.

Contact Sue, our Children and Family Officer, for details of all these.

  • Ordination

    Last Saturday I was privileged be in the Cathedral for the Ordination of Deacons. It was an occasion that was formal but intimate, grand and personal, exciting and, for me, humbling.
