Young People

Young People

The children and young people worship with the congregation at the morning service and then divide into age appropriate groups 0 -14.

Our work with children covers all ages from 0 to 14. We have a group for our 3+ called Explorers. They explore the Bible, their environment and anything which interests them. From time to time the congregation will be invited to join them on an exploration. Their symbol is a lantern. The older group is called Pioneers. Each year the children support a charity.

For more information contact Carole Cox, on 01794 323392.

On the 1st Sunday they are encouraged to join the congregation for communion. The aim of this group is to keep the young people's interest and to help them explore their belief by bible study and discussing how it influences their lives.
