Children at St James

Children are very much part of our church family at St James.  We try to ensure that there is something suitable for primary-aged children and younger during all our services, whether it’s their own groups or activities during the service in the carpeted area at the back of church (where there are also toys for pre-schoolers).  Children’s groups currently run during term-time on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays of the month.  The 1st Sunday is always an All-Age service and Messy Church is usually on the 4th Sunday from 4pm-6pm in the Parish Centre (please see the Messy Church page for dates).

We currently have 2 children’s groups running during the sermon and prayers part of our 10.30am service.  “Kids Church” is for primary aged children and “See and Know” is for under 5s.  Occasionally the 2 groups may combine due to children’s leaders being away.  Children usually go out to their groups after the 2nd song or hymn then rejoin the congregation during communion to receive a blessing with their families.

The service themes are in bold and BCP = Book of Common Prayer services, CW = Common Worship services.
