Children & YOung People
Our aim at St Paul's is to enable everyone, and perhaps most especially our children and young people, to identify their spirituality, explore issues of faith, and make sense of the world around them.
Children and Young People gather with the rest of the congregation at the beginning of the service and remain for about 10 to 15 minutes. Sometimes, but not always, there is a special message for the children before we pray for them and then they leave for their groups.
These groups provide a variety of age-appropriate activities and the opportunity to develop friendships and a sense of community.
A comfortable area in the church is set aside for very young children and parents who wish to remain in the service.
Children, under the guidance of their parents, are welcomed back into the church for communion.
Mondays 10 - 11.45am (term time only)
Alongside a variety of fun activities for babies and toddlers, there is time for rhymes, stories and singing while parents and carers can chat and enjoy a cup of coffee. Contact Julia Evans for more information firstname.lastname@example.org
For children of all ages (accompanied by an adult), Messy Church happens roughly every term and is an opportunity to learn more about God and the Christian faith by celebrating the churches seasons and festivals. It is a friendly and fun time for creative and often messy (the clue is in the title!) activities.
Sunday Celebration Services
These take place six times a year and are 'all age' services which celebrate the church seasons and festivals. They have a more informal format and include creative and reflective activities suitable for children, young people and adults. There is time for discussion, and the opportunity to make use of the chapel for quiet reflection.
