Children & Young People

  We are always delighted to welcome children and young people. They are fully part of the life of our Church. If you would like to ask about baptism, please contact the Minister. During the first three years, our First Steps secretaries, Mary and Dorothy Crawford, will keep in touch.  

Creche 0-3

Children are welcome as soon as parents wish to bring them. You may bring babies into Church; if they are restless you can take them into the foyer where you can still hear the service on the loudspeaker. You are also welcome to take them to the creche in the Church Parlour where they are cared for during the morning service by our dedicated team.
Contact person for the creche is Dorothy Crawford T: 01707 653118

Junior Church 3-11

Our Junior Church is for children aged 3 to 10. Our staff are fully trained for this work and offer teaching and activities suitable for each age-group. They meet in the Church Hall and join the congregation for part of the service. From time to time we offer preparation for children who - with their parents' agreement - would like to receive bread and wine at Communion. Those not yet prepared are welcome to receive a blessing.
