Youth & Children

Lots of fun! Children and young people are an important part of the life of this parish. As well as involving them in our worship and music on a Sunday, there is a wide range of activities every week for children and young people to become involved in.

On  Sundays, activities include Children’s ChurchYouth Fellowship and EmergeEmerge runs at the same time as Children’s Church, also in the Parish Centre.  It is for young people in first year (year 8) and above.  Biblical topics are explored and relevant issues that impact upon young people throughout their lives.  Everyone is Welcome!

Our Youth Leaders are Andrew Watson and Paula Lown

During the week there is a wide range of uniformed organisations that they can become involved with. Email the Parish Office

Kids Praise Group


Emerge is on at the same time as Children’s church and is for all young people in Years 8–14.  This is a very informal group where we eat a lot, explore faith, build friendships and create space for God to move in our hearts and minds.
