Junior Church

‘If you’re between 2 and 16 and you don’t enjoy sitting through church with the adults, Junior Church is perfect for you.’

‘I like Junior Church because we play exciting games and learn about Jesus at the same time.’

‘You make a lot of new friends.’

‘It’s great!’

Would you like to bring your family to church on a Sunday morning?
Not sure what would be on offer for your children?

At St. Mary’s we have a thriving Junior Church. We meet weekly for about 40 minutes during the 10.30am Sunday service,  with the exception of Parade services, All Age services and some school holidays, catering for children and young people from 0-18 years old in the following groups:

CRECHE   0 - 2 year olds
You are welcome to leave your baby/toddler with our crèche worker or stay in the crèche with your child if you would prefer. Toys and books provided.

CLIMBERS  Preschool - Year 2
Stories from the Bible or around a Christian theme, with activities including games, art and craft, music and simple prayer times.

EXPLORERS  Year 3 - Year 6
Exploring stories from the Bible or a Christian theme, with activities including games, cooking, art and craft, drama, music, and creative prayer times.

PATHFINDERS  Years 7 - 13
Discussions and activities to enable our young people to explore what it means to be a Christian in today's world. Pathfinders also have occasional opportunities to meet together outside of Sunday mornings for social activities and to take part in other church activities and services.


 Please do not worry about your babies or toddlers being too noisy. We would love to welcome you and your children into our church family.
