Children & Youth
At St Andrew’s Church we wholeheartedly embrace Jesus’ teaching to ‘let the little children come to me’ by providing many opportunities for children and young people to build their own relationships with Jesus.
During the 10.00am services on Sunday mornings we offer groups that are specifically designed to help children and young people understand the Bible readings for the day at their own level of ability.
We have a group of dedicated volunteers that run our Sunday groups. All our leaders and helpers are DBS cleared and follow strict safeguarding guidelines.
Many of our leaders/helpers are experienced with working with children and young people with special educational needs and physical disabilities and we want to ensure that every child and young person feels they are welcome at St Andrew’s Church, so if you have any concerns and/or special requirements at all please contact the Clergy.
Many of our children like to take a more active role in the Eucharist and have joined our Junior Choir or become part of the serving team.
As well our Sunday morning activities we also offer lots more opportunities for children, young people and families to be more involved in life at St Andrew’s Church. These include Noah’s Ark, our playgroup for under 5’s and their parents/carers, Messy Church, YouthCharist, Family Summer Days Out and much more.
We work with local schools and youth groups to offer Trail Visits to the church, special services, assemblies, lessons, Open The Book and more.
