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.
Meets monthly on a Saturday evening
Club 3:16 is our Youth Group and is suitable for young people in Year 6 and upwards. We offer different organised activities every month linked in some way to the practical living out of our Christian faith. Please check our What's On page for more details.
Meets Wednesdays during school term at 10am
Mainly Music is for children of age 5 and under, and their parents and carers, held during school terms. It is a fabulous programme of singing, music, movement and dance, especially crafted for small children and runs for 30 minutes. The programme is followed by morning tea, with a time for the adults to chat, and a playgroup for the children.

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.
