CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

Babies and Young Children.

 

Babies and young children are very welcome at St Andrew's. Please do not hesitate to bring your child into any of the services with you. Once Covid restrictions allow, we will go back to providing 'activity rucksacks' for small children, which are full of toys, books and colouring in. These can be taken with you to a pew for your child to explore during a service. If you can't see one just ask and someone will be happy to get one for you.

 

We also have a child's room with toys and a child's toilet at the back of the church. The walls are glass so that you can see into the church and there is a relay speaker so that you can hear the service whilst in the child's room. (Due to Covid, this room and the toys are currently not possible to use, but this room can still be used for feeding).

We realise that bringing very young children to church can be a challenge and we want to support you in any way that we can.

Sunday School, ages 3-11.

 

In normal times our Sunday School groups meet in church on a 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sunday of the Month.

At the moment we have two Sunday school groups meeting online.

Early years / KS1 - 4pm twice a month on a Sunday.

KS2 - 4:30pm twice a month on a Sunday.

Children are very welcome to join us. For our safeguarding guidelines and a link to the meeting please contact Revd Alice Pettit using the form below.

Our team are conscientious and experienced. We hope to provide children with a good understanding of the Christian faith, continuity and security as well as fun and enjoyment. 

Usually a Nativity Service is presented to the church just before Christmas each year. Social events and craft days are arrange throughout the year.  For more information about Sunday School, please contact Revd Alice Pettit using the contact form below.

Youth Group, age 11-18.

Our youth group currently meets online and we have brought together our two groups (ages 11-14 and 14-18). We will continue to review this and let you know once we are meeting face to face again.

Sunday evening zoom, 5-6:30pm.

Led by Joseph and Rachel.

'A place where young people are supported and empowered to have a personal relationship with God through Christ Jesus. Through Bible study, pastoral support, fun and games.'

Other Opportunities.

There are many opportunities for children and young people to be involved at St Andrew’s. Please speak to Rev Alice Pettit or use the contact form below if you are interested in volunteering with us as part of your Duke of Edinburgh award, joining our music group or choir and helping to lead Sunday worship, flower arranging, gardening, baking and many other activities. Or if you would be interested in our twice yearly art days or wish to speak to someone about baptism, confirmation or any aspect of life or faith. 

Parent and baby / toddlers group.

 

If you are interested in being part of a new group for parents and carers with babies and toddlers, with simple interactive Bible stories and songs, snacks and toys (once we can!) and friendly chat, please do get in touch.
