Children and Young People


Children, Young People and their Families are a really important part of life at St John’s and are welcome to join all of our services.

The church has a child-friendly area which you can use during any service; which contains a selection of toys, books and craft materials which will support your child’s worship. We’ve tried to provide quiet toys, but please don’t worry if your child does make a bit of noise! You’re welcome to use the toys in the area or take them back to your seat.


There are also a number of services and activities that are especially suitable for children, these include:

Children's Church - which runs most Sundays during term time

All Age Services - which occur once a month, on the 2nd Sunday, at 10am

Messy Church - which occurs a few times per year, usually on a Saturday afternoon

Toddle Along - our weekly toddler group on a Monday morning


Youth Group - which takes place on a Sunday evening

Messy Church

Good Friday saw St John's holding a wonderful Messy Church. Lots of crafts were made along with some yummy Easter biscuits. We had lots of children, and grown ups, joining in the fun. We then shared a lovely lunch after working hard on all our activities. Keep an eye on our website for the next Messy Church we would love to see you!

Waterfalls and Fountains

Our older group Waterfalls lead Children's Church for our group Fountains. They focussed on Psalm 23 "The Lord Is My Shepherd". The children planned the activities, read and explained the Psalm to the younger group and helped them with the activities. Waterfalls were very pleased with how their session went and were very pleased with their homemade bread named David, in honour of King David! Well done Waterfalls!
