Children & Youth


Junior Church
Our Junior Church groups 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!

For more information about Junior Church and the different groups, please see the 2015 Junior Church Leaflet.


Our youth group, with sessions most Sunday evenings. Impact Worship, a contemporary service that is served by our young people for the benefit of the whole church is held every 2nd Tuesday of the month at 6:15pm and the group visits FUEL in Harpenden every other month.


Tots Time
Our main activity aimed at the younger children during the week. Tots’ Time takes place every term-time Thursday, at 10.30am and is run by some of the team involved with Junior Church. The children and their parents (or grandparents or carers) meet in the centre of the church for a sing-song, a story and activities for little children. Children often start coming as babes-in-arms, as it is a lovely way to meet with other parents of younger children. We finish with refreshments by 11am or earlier.


The Ark
Soft play, craft and music for toddlers, every Wednesday morning, 9:30am in St Helen’s Church.
