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 meets every Wednesday during term time between 9.30 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 followed by refreshments. No need to book in advance, just come along. There is a small charge.
The Youth Club meets periodically in the Hall of the Church Centre on a Sunday between 5.30 and 7.00 pm. Subs are £1 a head and we also have a Tuck Shop. Although we are small, we are a supportive and welcoming group, and we have fun. Now and again we are able to join with other local Youth Clubs to enjoy bowling, rounders, barbecues, pizzas and games evenings. We are always looking for young people to join, aged between Year 6 and Year 11.

Our 7th Chelmsford Boys' Brigade Company provides a varied programme of interest for boys of all ages. Our Anchors (5 – 8 years) and Juniors (8 – 11 years) meet on Monday evenings at 6.00 pm, and our Company / Seniors (11 – 19 years) meet on Fridays at 7.30 pm, in the Church Centre. You can keep up to date with what's happening in BB through our BB website, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

All Saints' Pre-School caters for children aged from 2 to 4 years, and is open during term times on Monday Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and Wednesday and Friday afternoons. We are a traditional, friendly and nurturing pre-school with a stimulating environment indoors and outdoors, offering learning through play giving the children lots of new experiences eg Gardening, Cooking and Woodwork.
