Kids & Youth

We Are still meeting each month and weekly online!

All children, young people and families are welcome to join us, to have fun and learn more about God.

What happens at St. John’s on a Sunday:

On each Sunday different St John’s Communities are meeting in the church building for services and alongside some of these services we are offering Kids’ or Youth Church or an all-age service.

Families who are not yet part of a St. John’s Community are welcome to join one of these services. We would love to see you!

Services with children or youth groups are currently:

1st Sunday of the month – 11am – Kids’ Church groups for those in Years R-6

2nd Sunday of the month – 6pm – Youth Church groups for those in Years 7-13

3rd Sunday of the month – 3pm – All-age service for those with young families

4th Sunday of the month – 11am – Youth Church groups for those in Years 7-13

We are able to have some flexibility about the age ranges to accommodate siblings.

If you are planning on attending a service please let us know so that we can reserve you a space and prepare resources. To do so or for more information contact the Church Office using the details at the top of the page.

Unfortunately due to Church of England guidelines we are unable to offer any separate provision, including a creche, for pre-school children. Young children are welcome to stay in our services and parents are encouraged to bringĀ  toys, colouring etc. from home.

We are currently creating activity packs for children in our services.

We Are online every week!

Each Sunday at 9am we release St. John’s Families Online on our St. John’s YouTube channel. Designed for families to use together at home to help you chat, do and pray together it is based on the same Bible passage as our weekly streamed 11am service. Have a look at this week’s video below!

Alongside this is our weekly YouTube playlist of worship songs to help you explore the Bible story.

During the week:

Alongside our Sunday activities, we have regular activities such as: Messy Church, Youth Events and Refresh Cafe (for parents with 0-2s but currently not running due to COVID-19).

We also have links with the local primary schools, where St. John’s is involved with assemblies, school church services and support.
