St Paul’s Kids is managed by Hester Meacock, our Children’s and Families Minister' and Hannah Jones, our Assistant Children's and Families' Minister (who is currently on maternity leave), and run each week by a team of volunteers. Liz Garrett is organising Groovers whilst Hannah is on leave. All volunteers are DBS checked and trained throughout the year.
We have three Sunday morning children’s groups at both services which cater for new-borns to 11 year olds.
(0-2.5yrs) (2.5 - 5 yrs
) (5 - 11yrs)
Children’s groups start during the morning gatherings, enabling families to worship together at the start of the service.
In all our groups the children share a drink and biscuit, and build friendships throughout their time together.
The vision of St Paul’s Kids ministry is to see each child in church meet with the living God
and to grow in knowledge of His love for them.
To remind us of this vision our groups are named in a way that connects them to growth.
The values held in St Paul’s Kids work are the same as our whole church values but made more relevant to our kids.
Biblical and Prayerful
We learn from the Bible to help us understand our relationship with God and our world.
We learn to talk and listen to God through prayer for ourselves, one another and the world.
We invite friends to St Paul's Kids and include people in our groups and friendships.
We share what we have including our resources, ability to pray for one another and our time.
We share what’s going on in our lives and are kind to one another, helping everyone to see and remember God loves and cares for them.
We seek to become the children God made us to be in all that we do.
We share what we do in St Paul's Kids and the good news we know that Jesus loves us.
Led by the Spirit
We learn to listen and respond to God speaking through his Holy Spirit through Scripture and prayer.
Parents and Carers are required to fill in a consent form for their children.
If your child had SEND requirements we would like to be able to support your child to the best of abilities. In order to enable this, please speak to a member of the childen's ministry leadership team after the service or email them to arrange an appropriate time to meet midweek.

All Age Services
These are morning services held a number of times throughout the year, including Christmas, Easter and in the summer holidays. These services give us time to worship together as a big church family, and are a way in which all ages share their faith together.
