Babies, children and young people
Children and young people are valued members of our church community. They also have their own activities (see below). Child protection and safety is of utmost importance to the Parish and policies and procedures are in place for the protection of all children. Visit the Notice Board for special events.
Baby & Toddler Time for Mums and Dads and their little ones, every Monday in term time (except Bank Holidays) in the Pavilions in the church 9.45am-11.30am.
Children's Church meets on Sundays during the 10am service in the pavilions at St Andrew's (except first Sundays which are the All Age Worship service). See our current programme here. Children are welcome to stay in the main service but under 14s are also invited to join the Children's Church. We all begin the service in church together with a hymn. Then the children and leaders gather in the pavilions where we sing, pray and learn from the Bible. Each week we finish in time to rejoin the service for Communion. On the 1st Sunday of each month we stay in the main part of the Church for the All Age Worship service. If you are interested in helping with Children's Church please contact the Parish Office.
Sunday service creche There is a staffed creche in the pavillions in the back of the church every Sunday during the main 10am Parish Communion Service. You may take your child there at any point in the service but please collect them before you receive Communion. On 1st Sundays, it is an All Age service, so do still feel free to use the creche room for very young children and babies, but please note you will need to stay with them as there is no 'official' creche during these services. Baby changing facilities are in the toilet off St George's Chapel up on the left side of the church just past the organ.
