Children and Young People

Children and Young People

There is plenty going on at St Peter’s for children and young people!

In all our groups our aim is to help everyone with their own story of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. So, fo all ages there are opportunities to be introduced to Jesus and to learn more about our amazing God, the Bible and what it means to be followers of Jesus and part of his worldwide church in the 21st century.
Come and share the adventure!

Sunday Groups:

At St Peter’s we provide a full fun-packed programme lead by a team of enthusiastic volunteers, all of whom are DBS (CRB)-checked.

All the Children and Youth are with their families for the beginning of each 9.15am services, and then leave for their own groups. Different age groups are escorted to these locations:
3+ to 5+ in the library next to the Church Hall
5+ to 8+ in the library next to the Church Hall
Under 3s are welcome to use the crèche facilities in the church hall with their parents.
Children are brought back to their families for the end of the services.

Sunday by Sunday at both our Churches we aim to encourage each one in their journey of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ by using the Bible, songs, prayers, arts & crafts, games etc and our own stories of faith.
