Whilst we provide a family slot in all of our services, we do have an 'All Together Café Church', which is a family service on the 1st Sunday of the month. This is a more interactive service carried out by our All Age team and particularly aimed the Church as a family (getting to know one another and deepen our relationships), with a segment of the service and some activities for the children. There will be age appropriate worship, songs, bible stories and teachings, games/activities for all ages. We also have alternative worship/bible study groups for children and teenagers on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month.
Little Faith; No one is too old or too young to worship - and in Little Faith, that is just what we do! Songs, sticking, stories and play make for a lovely morning of worship and praise for our little ones, aged 0-4 (pre-school). We have a fantastic DBS checked team who run Little Faith, who will look after your children or welcome you into the group if you wish to stay!
Children's Church is our Sunday morning church for those aged 4-11 years old. We meet in the Church Centre for the duration of that mornings service. Our sessions will be filled with bible reading, fun and games, with our aim being that the children will know more about the love of God when they leave than when they came in!
Pathfinders' is our group for young people who are secondary school age. We meet every 2nd and 4th Sunday of the month in the Church Centre from 4:30-6pm. We aim to grow closer to Jesus through bible teaching and discussing what it means for us, as grow closer in friendship through having fun, playing table tennis, games and chatting.
Out and About
Sharing a Meal
St Mary’s continually strives to encourage, mentor and support those who are called to serve God. We are pleased that we have been able to nurture many who now live beyond our parish and work in many varied ways for the Church, both within the UK and beyond.
Monthly Church Family Prayer Meetup
We meet as a Church family on the first Thursday of the month at 8pm. This is the opportunity for all members of the church to meet to primarily pray but also to study the Bible. Although small in number, it serves a specific need to seek first the kingdom of God. Prayer is what Jesus calls us too. He tells us that it is the most important thing we can do - to draw close to God. He shows us specifically how to pray, when to pray and where to pray - anyhow, any time and anywhere! We invite you to join us for this months prayer meetup.
