Sunday morning children and youth groups

During our 11am service the groups for 0-14s need adults who enjoy spending time with children or young people. Our vision is that these groups will help children and youth to develop a faith that lasts their life time. The children and young people need adults who are able to listen to their stories, the highs and lows of their weeks and take an interest in them. We are looking for people willing to lead sessions, with the programme provided, as well as those happy to assist. Team members are asked to commit to being involved at least one Sunday per month. As part of our safer recruitment, volunteers will need to complete a short application form and a DBS check.

Refresh

Are you available weekly (or regularly) on Tuesday mornings from 9am-12.30pm? Are you willing to listen and offer encouragement to parents and carers with babies and toddlers? Or are you able to make teas and coffees? Then we would love you to join the Refresh team.

Messy Church

This monthly Sunday afternoon event needs team members who are able to help families to enjoy the crafts and activities that are on offer. Whilst you show them what they need to do they’ll be opportunities to chat with families and help them to feel part of the wider St John’s Church family. All the materials needed will be provided along with an explanation of the craft or activity you are supervising.

Families at 4

This new event for pre-school families happens on the third Sunday of every month, during the afternoon, and is aimed at families we have met through Refresh or others with under 5s. We provide activities for the children and need team who are able to encourage and support children and parents to get involved and to feel welcomed. If you enjoy a good chat, having fun or making things then there is definitely a role for you here!
