Children Services

Our young people are a big part of the life of the church, and are particularly welcome in the 9.30am service in St Andrew’s where we don’t mind a bit of noise! There are book bags, flags and instruments, and activity tables for younger children.  Children share in the opening twenty minutes or so of worship in Church before going to their own age-specific groups for 3 year-olds to teenagers, except for the second Sunday of the month when we stay together for All-Age Worship.  There is a supervised crèche for under 3s every Sunday. Feel free to use it at any point in the service if little ones get restless.

We have a comprehensive Child Protection Policy in place, and all leaders and volunteers are DBS checked.

Messy Church: 0 -99+

Messy Church is a different way of doing church. It started in Britain over 10 years ago and has spread to over 2000 locations around the world. It’s a great way of bringing families closer together and bringing everyone closer to Jesus.

Messy Church is mainly intended for people who don’t already belong to another form of church, but anyone can come, of any age and at any stage on your journey of faith.

Messy Church is once a month in the Parish Centre, behind St. Andrew’s Church. Look out for the posters or events on this website.
