Children and Youth at St Mary’s
There are activities on Sundays as well as throughout the week for children and young people…
During the week
Our Family Choir runs on a Wednesday afternoon and is open to all ages and singers of all levels of experience. They have learned and performed a varied repertoire including Irish songs, Fischy music, and music from ‘Frozen’.
Messy Church is for anyone aged 0 – 100 and is an active way of enjoying being a church family together. It is very informal with lots of activities and eating together too. It happens once a month after school on a Friday.
During our 10.30am Sunday Services there are supervised activities for children in Light Factory, which include Crèche for babies and children under 3 years (although they will sometimes join in the Godly Play sessions on the third Sunday of the month), Sparklers is our group for Pre-schoolers, Rockets is for children of Infant school age, Xplode for those in Junior school and a Youth Group for all those in Yr 7 and above.
The groups have a short time together for worship and sharing before going their separate ways for more age appropriate activities, based around a bible story or theme.
Youth Group meets regularly on Sunday evenings. This is an opportunity to reflect on our beliefs and to have space to challenge, discuss and learn together. We have regular social events together too.
FIX meets earlier and is a group for those in school years 5 and 6 and those transitioning in yr 7.
