CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE

We are trying to increase and develop our work with young people.

They are taking an increasing leading part in our monthly All Age service (usually first Sunday of the month at 11am).

We are trying to provide social occasions for them to enjoy going out together.

From September 2014- we have had the help of a gap-year student from XLP who spends time working with the young people. We now have a Youth Group (11-18 years)meeting on Thursdays in church from 6.30-8.30pm.

Most years we prepare a group of children aged 10 upwards for Confirmation.

Some of our young people serve as Acolytes and/or Crucifers.

Some of our children sing in the Choir.

With more space available in our new Avenons Building, we hope to increase our children and young people's activities.

We hope to initiate a Music Group in which they can be involved.

January 2016.

On occasions Sunday by Sunday there has been up to 30 children and young people in our church. Those who wish to, join the Sunday School after the first hymn, and return to join the congregation after Communion.

From 10 - 30 children and young people regularly attend our church.

 

SUNDAY SCHOOL is held for children 4-11 years every Sunday except the 1st Sunday from 11am - 12.30pm, led by 2 adults (by rote).

CHOIR

We are trying to build up our choir and we welcome new members. Modest bursaries are available for children who attend regularly. Please ring our office for further details.

YOUTH GROUP

We have an active Youth Group who meet regularly after church from 12.30 - 2pm.

They enjoy their fellowship and also rehearse for special events.

  

CONFIRMATION

Children are encouraged to seek confirmation at about 11 years or over. They attend about 9 sessions during which they learn about the Christian faith. The sessions include discussion, crossword puzzles, a little drama, and some simple artwork.

Of course you can also be confirmed as an adult.

All the adults who work with our children have to obtain CRB clearance
