Junior Church for children aged 7+ takes place in the Community Hall during the 10.00am Sunday service all year, except during August. For children aged 3-7 years, Sparklers takes place in the Lower Vestry within the Church. Children under 3 are very welcome to stay in church or join Sparklers with their parents. On the third Sunday of each month, children stay in church for a family friendly service.
All children are in church for the first part of the service. After the first hymn they are invited to the front of the church to light the peace candle and say a prayer before going to the hall or the Lower Vestry for their activities. The children return to church in time for a blessing - at the altar rail with their parents/carers (children in the Junior Choir return a little earlier).
Most third Sundays there will be a trip for children and sometimes their parents. The trips are usually suitable for all ages, although some may require younger children to be accompanied. Details of these outings can be found on our interactive Calendar.
If at any point your child gets restless or bored there are toys available in the Lady Chapel on the right hand side of the church by the organ. There are also loos and nappy changing facilities in the Vestry by the pulpit on the left hand side.
