Children's Church


During Services

Families with children are welcome to any and all of our church services.    

We have pew bags containing quiet activities such as books, colouring sheets and paper for drawing that our Welcomers will offer you as you arrive.  Feel free to bring quiet activities for your own children if preferred.  We understand that children make noise and move around!  Please use the space we have in St Mary’s to help your family be as comfortable as possible.

We don’t currently have a Children’s Church where children and young people receive their own age appropriate Christian teaching, but if this is something you are interested in for your child(ren) please let us know via the Church Office on 01949 842859 or email:

Holy Baptism (Christenings) and Confirmation

We hold regular services of Holy Baptism where babies, children (and adults!) are welcomed into God’s family.  During these services there are organized crafts for children that take place in the main body of the church throughout the service.

When children and young people (and adults!) are ready to confirm the promises made for them at their baptism and step into their growing faith, we participate in special Confirmation services led by our Bishops, approximately every 2 years.     

If you would like to discuss having your child(ren) baptized or confirmed, please contact the Church Office on 01949 842859 or email:
