FAMILIES AND YOUNG PEOPLE

We believe that the church is a family, and like any healthy family will have people of all ages as part of its life. Children, like adults, are the church of today, and, like adults, deserve to be included, respected and given an authentic place in which to thrive. Through our ministry with children and families, we seek to support parents in their efforts to keep the commitments they made when their children were baptised; namely, to bring up their children in the life and faith of the church community. We have a variety of events and activities for children and youth of all ages.

Families @ 5:30 

1st & 3rd Saturday of the month at 5.30pm

If you are looking for something different, here is a celebration of Holy Communion catering especially for families, with modern music, family-friendly readings, and fun activities for children to learn from. Children of all ages are encouraged to participate in worship, to whatever extent they are able. This includes reading and leading prayers, and participating in ceremonial aspects of the service. There is a supper afterwards for all who would like to stay.

Family Movie Nights

Three to four times a year we show a family-friendly movie in the hall. Bean bags are available for children. Admission is  free, and a retiring collection (of money or goods) may be taken in aid of one of the organisations the parish supports. Invite a friend, bring the family, and we'll provide free pop corn and ice cream. Check our What's On page for details of the next movie.
