‘Fostering a love of Christ, His Word and His Church in our under 11’s’

At St Mary’s our desire is that each child would know that they are loved unconditionally by our Father God. That our children would have a sense of belonging to the wider church family and be encouraged to love and worship Jesus in their own unique way.

We want to see our children come to know Jesus personally and seek to live a life that glorifies him.

Our children are encouraged to be active members of the church and we seek to nurture their God given gifts in a safe and Jesus centred environment.

Sunday Groups:

We endeavour to run Sunday Groups on the 2nd, 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of every month (with breaks during school holidays)

Each group (excluding Crèche) includes, sung worship, Bible reading, prayer, listening to God, games, craft and food! Crèche is a safe place where you can leave your 0 -2 year old to play while you participate in the service.

All groups are led by wonderful volunteers from within the church family. All volunteers have completed a DBS check as well as a self-disclosure form.

Creche (0-2’s)

Sparklers (2-4’s)

Flames (5-7’s – Infant School)

Rockets (8’s-11’s – Junior School)


Sparklers, Flames and Rockets hold termly socials; in the past these have included bowling, tea and games, pancake parties and picnics.

We also run seasonal one-off events for our under 11’s; in the past these have included the Easter Eggstravaganza, Angels and Heroes Party (alternative Halloween), Summer Holiday Club and Christingle.
