We have a number of groups for children and young people at St. Paul’s. If you’d like a brief overview then please read on. Each of the groups has its own page so if you’d like more information then please explore the ‘Young People’ menu to find out more.
Thursday afternoon during term time from 1.30pm: LITTLE TREASURES Toddler group welcomes parents, grandparents, carers and babies and toddlers. Do join us for a friendly chat, and plenty of activities for busy preschool children! First visit is free, then £1 per family to cover the cost of refreshments and craft activities.
Friday evenings from 5pm until 7pm: HEATH CAFÉ is for children in school years 4, 5, 6 and 7. Food is provided and there are games, crafts and activities . The group meet in the Church hall. Cost £1. Tuck shop sweets and drinks for a small cost.
Sunday mornings: SUNDAY CLUB is for all children, reception to yr 6. This takes place on 3 out the 4 Sundays per month. Please ask on arriving in church if you would like your children to attend. Each time there are lots of activities and discussions relating to stories from the bible.
Once a month: D-TEAM is our discipleship/Bible study group for 11 to 16-year olds. It’s led by Natalie and Matt Williams and meets on the last Tuesday of the month, 7.30pm to 8.45pm, at their home. If you’d like to know more please ask.
Second Sundays at 4pm: FRESH is our relaxed, informal get-together for families with children and young people. There’s a choice of craft and activities – you get to choose what you do and in what order. There’s a bible story, singing and prayers and at 5pm there’s a light meal for the children. There’s copious amounts of tea and coffee for the adults. Voluntary donations for the cost of materials and food are gratefully received.
All our child and youth leaders are DBS checked and receive safeguarding training. Do speak to a church leader if you would like any information on any of these activities! Ring the church office on 01202 605311.
At Easter we have our annual holiday club for school aged children. We have drama, crafts, songs and fun! It is a wonderful opportunity for the children to make some discoveries about God and following Jesus.
