Children & Youth

Good children's work and workers make a real difference to the life of any church and we are delighted to commend to you those who care for the children of the church and their visitors week by week, during our Sunday morning services and throughout the week.

All of our children's workers have enhanced DBS checks (they used to be called CRB's) and work in accordance with the church's Child Protection Policy.

One thing we know for certain - our kids have fun!
