Children and Young People


Jesus called them back. "Let these children alone. Don't get between them and me.

These children are the kingdom's pride and joy.’"

Luke 18:15-17 (The Message)


Children are central to the life of St James’. As a family-focused church we

actively welcome families with children of all ages. Our children’s work includes

activities for both pre-school and school-age children. Our regular activities are

listed below: 


A holiday-club style fun-filled morning designed to nurture and grow faith in Primary age kids

Meets: Every first and third Sunday (except school holidays)
