Children & Youth

Junior Church
Our Junior Church groups (age 3 and up) meet during the 9.30am Parish Communion service every Sunday during term time, except the third Sunday of the month when we have our Parish Praise service, where the whole church family worships together. Our groups usually leave the service during the first hymn, led out by the Junior Church Leaders; the youngest children stay in church and go to the Vestry and the rest of the children go to St Helen’s School.

If you are unsure of anything please ask one of our Welcoming Team when you come into church. All our groups use resources from Urban Saints, providing fun and age-specific activities to help our children get to know God and realise how much He loves them!


Kids Worship
This is an all-age informal service aimed at family groups and younger members of our congregation – held in St Helen’s School Hall every first Sunday of the month. 3:30pm. Come and join the fun with interactive stories, games and challenges and lively music.


Our youth group, with sessions most Sunday evenings. On the first 3 Sundays in term time, Impact meets at St Helen’s Church, 6-8pm for games, food and bible study. On the 4th Sunday, Impact joins forces with other youth groups in the area for a large youth worship gathering, FUEL.
