Kids at St Mary’s


Kids at St Mary’s takes place during both the 9am and 11am services on Sundays.  We start off together in church, and then head down to the Church Rooms for fun games, activities and Bible study both in small groups and all together.

Children’s Groups:

Sunbeams is for any children aged 0-4 years old. They meet in the lower hall for play, singing, a Bible story and craft. We provide fruit during the session.

Children in school years Reception to Year 6 meet in three separate groups; Trekkers (Reception, Year 1 & 2), Adventurers (Year 3 & 4), Explorers (Year 5 & 6). They meet together in the lower hall for small group time, followed by upfront teaching in the upper hall, followed by more small group time. We provide squash and biscuits during the session.

There is a creche and toddler group for 0-3’s at both services. 4-11’s spend some of their time all together and the rest of their time in age appropriate groups.

We take child protection very seriously and ensure that all our leaders have DBS checks and are well trained.
