Children & Families

God put the wiggle in children and we love having children and young people in church! We've got lots going on and we can't wait to meet you and your little ones. We have a full-time Children and Families Leader and we can't wait to meet you. 

All our Sunday services are family friendly and there's lots going on mid-week too! Come and join in the fun...

Our main Sunday service is at 10.30am. There's always lots for children to do and we encourage everyone to be themselves and so we don't mind if there's noise; church should be fun!  Children either go out to our Kid's Church or stay and play with our superb volunteers who lay on a range of activities each week. 

Once a month, on the fourth Sunday of every month, we have a special 10.30am service called 'Worship Together'. This service is particularly interactive and informal and there's opportunities for children and young people to get really involved in the service. 

Every Wednesday in term time from 10am-11.30am, St Mary's Church is taken over by our Church Mice. Our toddler group is a like a big family where there's singing, dancing and toys galore. There's tea and coffee for tired parents / carers too. And it's all free! Just turn up

At Messy Church, there's always a range of fun activities and crafts, Bible stories and a light snack too. Contact us in the Church office to find out when our next Messy Church is running.
