Currently we cannot run separate children's activities on Sunday's due to Covid-19 restrictions. Our 9:30 am service at St Andrew's has a particular focus on families with young children.
Whether your children are pre-school or they are sitting A-levels they
are very welcome in our church family. We have a number of different
groups for different ages of children, all aiming to teach the children
the Bible in a way that is appropriate for their age. Our children's holiday club is in July this year. See the information below.
On Sunday mornings everyone, young and old, spend the first part of the service together. During this part of the service we sing (including at least one children's song), hear part of the Bible read, and then have a short talk directed at the children (but for us all to listen to).
After the short talk children up to year 8 leave to go to Creche or one of the Sunday Club groups. The different groups we have are:
Creche (0-YR school year)
Explorers (year group 1 to year group 5)
Pioneers (year group 6 to year group 9)
Teenagers in years 9 - 13 stay in during the morning service and then go to the Youth Group which meets from 7.45pm till 9.00pm at the Parish Assistant's house. [Please note that there is currently no Youth Group - contact the Assistant Minister for information].
During Covid restrictions:
Pioneers Group (school years 6 to 9} is meeting virtually via Zoom. For information please contact Caroline Elphick, 01256-851304 or .
