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 each month, and on special occasions such as Mothering Sunday and our Harvest Festival, children worship in church with their parents.
Children’s groups are led by All Saints parents who have undergone CRB checks and who engage in ongoing training. Our groups often use Godly Play, a fun, creative and prayerful method of helping young people explore both the Christian scriptures and also 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.
