Junior Church at St Mary’s Shortlands

‘If you’re between 2 and 16 and you don’t enjoy sitting through church with the adults, Junior Church is perfect for you.’

‘I like Junior Church because we play exciting games and learn about Jesus at the same time.’

‘You make a lot of new friends.’

‘It’s great!’

Would you like to bring your family to church on a Sunday morning?
Not sure what would be on offer for your children?

At St. Mary’s we have a thriving Junior Church. We meet weekly for about 40 minutes during the 10.30am Sunday service,  with the exception of Parade services, All Age services and some school holidays, catering for children and young people from 0-18 years old in the following groups:

CRECHE   0 - 2 year olds

You are welcome to leave your baby/toddler with our crèche worker or stay in the crèche with your child if you would prefer. Toys and books provided.

BEGINNERS   2 -5 year olds

Stories from the Bible or around a Christian theme, with activities including games, art and craft, music and simple prayer times.

CLIMBERS AND EXPLORERS  5-11 year olds
