Sundays : Children's Groups
There is a soft area at the back of church, to the left just after you've walked through the main doors. If you are bringing a child aged 0-4 you are welcome to sit in this area together so you can be a part of the service. There are a selection of toys for your child to play with and some colouring for the older ones in this age group. We always have someone in the crèche area to help you with any questions you may have.
During the service there is a children's hymn where all children are invited to the front to play a musical instrument and sing along!
This facility is available each Sunday throughout the year.
Sparklers is a Sunday group for children aged 4 to 7 years. They meet each Sunday during term time except in All Age Services where children are welcome to join in the service as part of the congregation.
Our aim is to encourage the children to learn about God’s love for them using a variety of activities. Children will learn about the Bible readings that have been heard by the congregation and will often show their work at the end of the service. Children re-join the congregation for Holy Communion.
Rockets is a Sunday Group for children aged 8 years and over. They meet on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. On the 2nd and 4th Sundays Rockets will sit with the congregation and join in the service. There is an opportunity to help with the younger children if they so wish.
Our aim is to encourage the children to learn about God's love for them through thought provoking discussion and group activities. The children and young people in this group have the opportunity to explore what it is to lead a Christian life as well as come to know God's word through the Bible readings. Rockets will re-join the congregation for Holy Communion.
If there is a 5th Sunday in the month all the Sunday School groups come together during the service in the Trinity Centre for art, craft and drama activities. This is also the case throughout the summer holiday weeks.
Below is the children's display of the Lost Sheep made at one of our 5th Sundays. This particular Sunday was led by John Routh, our Rector.
