Children & Youth

KOSTA – Children’s Church

KOSTA (Kids of St Andrew’s) meets on Sundays during the 10am service at St Andrew’s (except first Sundays which are the All Age Worship services). Children are welcome to stay in the main service but we invite all under 11s to join the Children’s Church. We begin the service in church together with a hymn. The children and leaders then gather at the front of church to pray and we move into the Pavilions at the back of church to play games, read the story and engage in craft activities before coming back into the service at Communion.

On the 1st Sunday of each month we all stay in the main part of the Church for the All Age Worship service.

If you would like to know more about Children’s activities at St Andrews please don’t hesitate to contact Emma on

All leaders are DBS checked and St Andrew’s has a Safeguarding Policy in line with the Church of England Guidelines.

For any concerns about Parish Safeguarding please contact David Uffindell or Sanchia Vinall, our Parish Safeguarding Officer.
