Children and young people are very much a part of the All Saints community. During term time children enjoy age-appropriate activities during the 10AM service, returning in time for communion or a blessing. On the third Sunday of every month and on special occasions such as Harvest Festival and Mothering Sunday, children worship in church with their parents. Children’s groups are lead by All Saints parents who have undergone appropriate checks by the Church’s Safeguarding authority and who engage in ongoing training. Our groups use Godly Play, a fun, creative and prayerful method of helping young people explore the Christian scriptures and traditions and their own developing spiritual lives. In addition, children may choose to join the choir where they learn to sing, read music and enjoy belonging to a diverse and nurturing group of children, teens and adults. Children in the choir are the special responsibility of the head chorister. Children also may serve as acolytes and as sidespeople on third Sundays.
