Children and families are very welcome at St Mary’s Church.

This is a very informal fun filled family service usually held at on the 4th Sunday in the month at 11.15 am. Refreshments served from 11 am.
J4U is our monthly 👨👩👦👦 Family Service with songs, 🎶 musical instruments 🥁 for all, fun, stories, prayers 🙏and a whole lot more. It is aimed at children and their families.
Children’s Area in St Mary’s Church
There is a children’s area at the back of church with books and toys for families to use with their children. Most Sundays, colouring and other craft activities are provided for children and young people who would like to use them.
There are bags at the back of church with toys, books, drinks and snacks. They have been prepared with a specific age range of children in mind.
Half Term Special Events
Special events for children and their carers and families are often organised during school holidays. We recently held a very successful light party for children in primary school age in October 2023 and we hope to have more events in school holidays in the future. Watch this space.
