Children and young people

Children

We try hard to make sure children are welcomed and included in the life of All Saints.

During the Sunday 10 o’clock service we hold junior church. Children begin the service with their families and friends in the main church, then go downstairs to the crypt for their activities. They are brought back in time for communion.

Junior church includes stories, activities and games to enable to make friends, learn about the Bible, begin to pray and grow in faith.

For children who might get a bit fidgety in church we have a special area where they can sit with their families, do some colouring, draw a picture or play with quiet toys. We really don’t want parents to feel worried about bringing children to All Saints; they are welcome just as they are.

We have a number of special events during the year, including a Harvest Service, Bonfire party, Christmas party, a Christingle Service and Nativity Play, a Pancake Party and Good Friday workshop.  We also prepare and admit children aged 7 and older to receive communion.

Young people

Our 11 – 18 year olds are welcome on Sunday mornings and are involved in our services. We plan social events such as pizza and bowling, cinema trips and barbecues. 

We take safety seriously and follow Diocesan policies, procedures and guidelines for safeguarding children and vulnerable adults.
