Childrens Work

Outreach to our young families is important to the life of the church...


Children's Work

Sunday School 

Our Sunday School runs on the 3rd and 4th Sundays during the 10am Sunday Service, apart from during the month of August. At the beginning of the service all children are invited to join this friendly group for 30 minutes of teaching and craft activities and then return to the church to join in the Service. Parents and carers are welcome to accompany their children. 

Coffee, Play and Praise!

'Coffee, Play and Praise!' is held three to four times a year, including the Teddy Bears' Tea Party (see below), usually on a wednesday in the church and is designed for parents and carers with pre-school age children. Playtime is followed by a short relaxed service with a story, singing and short prayers where the children are encouraged to take part. Refreshments are served afterwards and the children have another chance to play and take part in craft activities.
