Children’s Activities

Children’s Activities

Junior Church meets every Sunday at 10.30am with the whole Church Family and then in different age groups from 3-12 years. At 13 years they move to the Sunday Morning Y-club. Our children play an active part in Church life and are greatly valued and cared for. Contact Kate Baxter on 01959 523687 or come along on a Sunday at 10.30am. We aim to make Junior Church fun and lively. Our leaders are always happy to welcome new children.

Holiday clubs

We have run many holiday clubs over the last few years to help out local parents in the holidays and to bring a touch of mad fun to the holidays for the kids.
