During school terms St James’s runs the following programme for children:

1st Sunday of the month – All Age Service in Church, shorter and less formal than other Sundays. The Soul Space tent is available at the back of the Church if children feel a bit restless. There are also puzzles and colouring materials for children to use at any time.

On the 3rd and 5th Sundays of the month, we meet in Church at 10.30 and leave for Young Church in the Parish Rooms soon after the first hymn. We enjoy a programme of varied activities with stories, games, crafts and prayers for children. We return to church in time for the Eucharist.  An easy way to know what’s on is to remember there are organised children’s activities on every odd Sunday of the month. On other Sundays, if a large number of children attend, we will also offer Young Church activities in the Parish Rooms.

Parents with babies and toddlers are welcome at all services.  On 3rd and 5th Sundays, why not bring your little ones to the Parish Rooms when Young Church makes its way over? We have a good range of toys for your children to play with.  Or if you prefer, they are most welcome to stay in church with you.

If you would like to receive updates of special events and services of special interest to families such as the Pet Service in October, the Christingle service on Christmas Eve and the Pancake Supper, please send your email address to .

We hope to see you soon!
