Junior Church and Youth Group
Children aged 5yr upwards are very welcome. Our Youth Group for senior school pupils meets at the same time. We begin in Church and join in the singing and listening to a short story with the rest of the Church family. Back in the Hall both groups enjoy stories, games, quizzes and art/craft and finally join together for singing and prayer before the morning ends.
We have a minibus that is available to collect and return children home at the end of the morning.
During the year we have different activities. We have a Youth tea four times a year on a Sunday afternoon with tea and a games then an all age service that finishes at 7.30pm. In July we have two special occasions- our Junior Church Anniversary and a Family Outing day. In December we have our Christmas Celebrations.
New children and young people are always welcome to come and join us, do pop along any Sunday – you are guaranteed a warm welcome.
