Junior ChurchA creche and junior church runs during the Sunday morning service at 10:30am
Junior Church is held each Sunday during the 10:30am morning service.
Junior Church is for primary age children. The children typically start the service in the church building with the rest of the church at 10:30am. Together we sing songs and hymns, read the Bible, pray and listen to a children’s talk. At around 10.50, the children usually go to Junior Church for teaching suitable for their age.
Junior church is held in the church hall and all the leaders have the appropriate DBS checks. Junior church is split into two groups the younger group runs from age 3 or 4 to 7 years old and the older group for 7 to 11 year olds. We are always flexible in putting children in the most appropriate group for them to learn! Each group normally has at least a leader and a helper.
The older children and adults then continue in the main service, where the focus is on teaching and understanding the Bible. Guide-sheets are provided to help older children and young people follow the sermon.
A creche also runs in the church vestry – where there is an audio relay of the service.

Chatterbox is a lively, friendly group for parents with babies and toddlers. Together we listen to Bible stories and share our love of music during rhyme time. Parents can relax with a cup of ground coffee, and we have lots of new toys for your little ones to enjoy.
Chatterbox is held during term time, on Tuesday mornings between 9.45 and 11.30 in the hall at the back of the church. Why not come along for a taster session?
