Young Church

Summer Holidays until mid-September

Young Church is offered for all children during most services. There is also a children’s corner at the back of the church with cushions, children’s literature, soft toys and colouring materials.

On a normal Sunday children start the service with their parents. After the Gospel reading they go, together with their teachers and any parents who would like to stay with their children, to a seperate room where they learn bible stories, do crafts, and sing songs until they join the church service again just before communion is being distributed.

Sometimes the lessons will follow the Church Year: learning what Epiphany, Lent and Easter mean for example. Sometimes they concentrate on the Calendar year such as celebrating mothers on Mothering Sunday. And other times a favorite Bible story will be discussed.
