Children's Worship in Church
Sadly, our Children's groups cannot meet in church at the moment, but we hope to be able to resume the following pattern when circumstances allow in the future.
When do the Children’s Groups take place? Children’s worship takes place during the 10:00am service at St. Mary’s and 11:00am service at St. Anne’s during term-time only. Children leave the service after the Collect and return after the Eucharistic prayer to rejoin the service for communion.
What Children’s Groups do we have and where do they meet?
Young Discoverers – for children aged 0-2. Meet in the West Room, St. Mary’s. All children in this group must be accompanied by an adult.
Explorers – for children aged 3-5. Meet in the Courtyard Room, St. Mary’s. Parents / carers are not required to accompany children in this group.
Voyagers – for children aged 6-7. Meet in the Choir Vestry, St. Mary’s.
Pioneers – for children aged 8-11. Meet in the Warden’s Office, St. Mary’s.
All-Age Group – Meet in the Children’s Room, St. Anne’s.
What happens in the groups? The Young Discoverers and Explorers enjoy songs, age-appropriate prayer, a short story and a craft activity. The Voyagers and Pioneers use a weekly resource called Roots, which includes prayers, stories and activities based on the weekly readings from the Bible. Worship at St Anne’s is similar to St Mary’s with adaptations to accommodate their all-age context.
How does my child join in? All children are welcome to join our groups. If you are here with your child for the first time, please identify yourself to a church member at the Welcome Desk as you enter the church, and we will ensure that you are directed to the right group. All children are registered for safeguarding purposes.
Who leads the groups? All of our group leaders are volunteers from our congregations who are DBS checked and have undertaken Safeguarding Training.
