At the present time our usual groups for children are on hold. However, families are still meeting regularly to worship together from our homes and to catch up and share news with each other. Family Worship is regularly held on Zoom on Sundays at 10.45am and we share in our Zoom All Age service on the first Sunday each month at 10am. When not in lockdown, we meet once a month for socially-distanced family worship outdoors.
To find out more, please contact our Children’s Worker, Elisabeth Sutcliffe.
Children on Sundays at St Andrew’s
We look forward to the time when our community can all be together again in church. During the 10.00am service on Sundays, activities for children are provided as follows:
On the first Sunday of the month, we are all together in church for an all age service, which a table for children at the front by the organ. The worship band usually leads the music for this service.
On all other Sundays, we start together in church at 10.00 with the children going to their groups during the first hymn and returning at the peace. The groups are:
Jigsaw group for 3-5 year olds
- JIGSAW (Jesus Is Great Super And Wonderful). Parents and carers are also welcome to come and join us. This group meets in the Holt Room.
Jam group for 6-10 year olds
- JAM (Jesus And Me) meets in the Hulbert Room.
Jump group for 11+ years

In addition, crèche facilities are available in the Quiet Room, where the service can be heard through the speaker system. There is also a children’s corner where there are toys and other activities.
