Children & Families
St Paul's is a family-friendly Church, always welcoming children and young people of all ages. We have a full range of activities and groups. More detail can be found on each group, but in short.....
During the Week
We meet on Thursday mornings during term time in the church hall between 10.00 am and 11.30 am. Come and meet other parents and carers with their babies and toddlers. All are welcome. Music, refreshments, activities are provided.
This is our popular after-school event for children and families and meets 3.30 pm - 6.00 pm on the second Thursday of the month. A warm welcome to parents, carers and children for crafts, activities, games, singing, Bible story telling, and a sit-down meal for all! £2.50 per child per session. The Welcome Cafe opens at 3.45 pm.
7 – 11s
Our fun activity for 7-11s meets once or twice a term for games, creative activities, outings, food and fun, often concluding with a short epilogue to enable reflection on an aspect of the Christian faith.
We have groups for children and young people meeting during our 10.30 am service. Our Youth Group for year 7 upwards meets in the evening. We also have an All-Age service, normally once a term.
Crèche - 0 to 3 yrs
The crèche meets in one of the church halls at 10.30 am on Sunday mornings. Our team is happy to welcome and look after babies and children, with or without their parents and carers. This can be for part or all of the service, enabling you to join in worship in the church. For All-Age services, young children are encouraged to be in the service.
Sunday Squad - 4 to 11 yrs
These groups meet on a Sunday morning, starting with the adults in church, then moving to their own activities in the church halls and returning later. Activities include Bible stories, prayers, songs, craft and games. The Sunday Squad has two groups:
Pebbles - for the 4 to 6s
Rocks - 7 to 11s
Youth Group - 11+
We are delighted to welcome young people aged 11+ (year 7) to St Paul’s Youth Group. This meets every Sunday night from 7.00 pm - 8.30 pm during term time in the church hall. Food, games, music, discussion and fun together feature very strongly!
