Children & Youth
On this page you will find brief details of the groups and activities involving children and young people which take place at All Saints’. To find out more please get in touch.
We are delighted when parents bring their babies or young children to All Saints’ for baptism, or christening as it is sometimes called.
For more information please see our Baptism page.
Children are welcome at all our services, but they will particularly enjoy our Worship Together service, normally held on the first Sunday morning of the month, and our Sunday Special service, held on all the other Sundays. Please see our Sunday Services page for more details.
Children in Church
Every Wednesday Children in Church is having a play session in the Church Hall from 9.30 - 11.30 am, for all pre-school children with their parents and carers to meet up and have fun. Please wear a face covering while moving around the building and have a recent, negative lateral flow test before you come. Looking forward to seeing you! There is no need to book in advance, just come along.
Children in Church normally meets on Wednesdays during term time between 9.30 am and 11.30 am in the Church Centre. It provides a happy and friendly environment where pre-school children can play and enjoy a range of other activities with their parents and grandparents, including a short service in the church. There is a small charge.
Kids from All Saints' Sunday Special and their friends enjoy soccer coaching on Saturday mornings from 10.30 - 11.30 am on Springfield Green. Ages range from 4 to 12, boys and girls, and we cover basic fitness and skills. New players are always welcome. The one who has improved most from the previous week is awarded the "Sunday Special Player of the Week" cup which brings extra determination and a big smile from everyone at the end!
