At the 10.30 Sunday Service, we have a Sunday Club for children from 3/4 to 12 years, and a creche available for those under 3. With our team of Sunday Club leaders, we do activities connected with the readings for that Sunday, and often include a simple, fun craft or a song. Wsually use Spill the Beans material. Everyone welcome!
If you would like to know more about our work with children and young people, contact Jennifer Stark, our Associate for Christian Education and Pastoral Care.
