Children and Youth
At St Andrew’s Church we welcome all children, youth and their families. We believe that young people have a huge amount to offer our community through their insights about God, and we seek to guide children on their faith journey while they support us on ours.
We are known for being open and inclusive so whether you are a parent wanting some company while looking after your baby or toddler, a family wanting to connect with a church community, or a young person interested in exploring faith and spirituality, you are very welcome.
Our Children’s Worker, Elisabeth Sutcliffe, has extensive experience in working with children, as a trained primary school teacher and a leader in children’s ministry in different churches. She is really interested in children’s spirituality and how all people, across all generations, can learn about God from each other. We also have a fantastic team of volunteers who bring their gifts and experience to leading activities, discussion, prayer and worship with our young people.
Please get in touch with Elisabeth usnig the link below or by calling her on 07395 806441 if you would like to know more about anything for families and young people at St Andrew’s!
