CHILDREN 

Our aim is for children to discover and encounter the God who made them and loves them. During the Covid restrictions – as always – we do so in ways appropriate for their age and understanding.

This means offering children opportunities to learn about God, explore faith, have an experience of God and see what it means to be a part of a larger faith community.

More than that, we take great care to make sure all the groups and activities are engaging, enjoyable, stimulating and relevant to young lives.

If you would like find out more about our activities for children 0 to Y6, please contact our Children and Families Minister Ada Rugg.
