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.
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.
