Children & Youth


We aim to make the time that children and youth spend with us the best part of their week, so they can't wait to come back! All children are welcome to join us to have fun and learn more about God.

What we do here at St. John's on a Sunday:

0-2’s – meet at the back of Church.
3-Reception – meet in the small hall of the community centre
Years 1-5 – meet in the main hall of the community centre
Youth - Years 6 and Up - Meet in the "Bridge Room"

Registration is in church between 10:15am and 10:30am, so please leave enough time to do this before the service starts. They finish at 12.00noon.

Along side our Sunday activities, we have regular activities such as, Messy Church, Youth Club, Refresh Cafe.
We have links with the local primary schools, where St. John's is involved with assemblies, school church services and school productions.

Our Youth Director Charis is also the Colchester Academy Chaplain, which is one of the local secondary schools.
