We are fortunate to have a thriving children and young people’s work at St Andrew’s and have around 25-40 under 16s who come each week. The children’s groups run every week except for the 3rd Sunday of the month, which is an all age service. After the initial start of the service, children and young people leave for their different groups for more learning and fun time together. There is a mixture of signing, drama, craft and stories as we seek to grow and nurture their faith.
We have recently reshuffled our children’s groups according to need and are adopting more of a flexible approach to ages so that we can meet the spiritual and developmental needs of each individual child. Helen Attree our Children and Families Ministry Leader oversees the children’s groups and supports the great team of leaders we have.

All our leaders and helpers have been DBS checked and have received safeguarding training.
