At St James we place a strong emphasis on developing our children and young people. You are a really important part of the church and we feel really privileged to work with you and help you grow in your faith.
Our goal for children’s ministry at St James is that all our children’s groups, activities and worship should be fun and friendly places where we can discover more about Jesus and what it means to follow Him.
We are really looking forward to getting to know you, so do come and see all that is going on! Check out the tabs below for details.
Each group is led by at least two adults and there are also opportunities for the young people to develop their leadership skills as young helpers.
New children are always welcome to come and join us – Just turn up and introduce yourself! When you come on a Sunday look out for adults wearing white PowerHouse name badges – they are the leaders for that week and will be able to tell you where to go and introduce you to other children in your group.
Little Worship normally follows the same format with a different theme each week. Once the group activities are finished, we bring out the toys so the children can play and the grown-ups can enjoy a chat over coffee.
New members with young children – from newborns to preschoolers – are always welcome; you don’t have to already come to church to join us!
