Children and Young People at St Mary’s
The phrase “Children are the church of tomorrow” is deeply misleading. They are not. They are as much the church of today as everyone else and their presence is greatly valued and encouraged here at St Mary’s. There is a family service suitable for children at 11.30am every week and Explorers Club takes place at 11.30am on the first three Sundays of the month. Local schools often use the church as do local uniformed groups who parade regularly. As a parish, we support the admission of children to Holy Communion before confirmation, subject to a suitable period of instruction and with the agreement of the Vicar.
Cygnets Coffee and Play meets in church from 10am – 11.30am on the second Thursday of the month during term time. It is open to anyone with pre-school age children or babies. Do come along for a coffee and a chat, we would love to see you! For more information on Cygnets please contact Alice Downes on 07771 826319 or email her firstname.lastname@example.org
