Groups & Programmes For Children At St Mary’s Parish Church
We want our church community to be open to all, where we can learn and have fellowship together, and build up our service and contribution to the life of the local community. You can read about our activities for children on this page. Contact us for more information on any of the groups. Read about our groups for secondary-school-age young people here.
We run a Holiday Club for junior age children most summer holidays. Last year’s theme was Paul – the fearless adventurer. We offer a variety of activities with Christian teaching and worship.
This year’s Club will be held on the mornings of 23rd to 26th July, 9.30am to 12.30pm. More details will be available nearer to the time.
Sunday mornings 10am
Children are aged three to eleven. We meet on Sunday mornings and join the rest of the church for part of the service. We aim to inform children about the Christian faith and to help them start to think for themselves. Our children often play a part in the Eucharist on every third Sunday of the month.
Mums & Toddlers
The group meets between 10 -11.30 Thursday morning in school term time and we welcome parents, grandparents and carers of very young children. We provide time, friendship and support for anyone looking after a small person.
£2 entry. Coffee and refreshments provided.
Rainbows, Brownies, Guides
