Junior Church

Our Junior Church is made up of five groups:

Scramblers (for age 3-5 years) – led by Katherine Carris-Harris, Jill Bareham and Anna Mohamedbai. These children meet in the Vestry, leaving the service during the first hymn and returning for a blessing during communion to then sit with their family again. From September we plan to offer two elements to this session: Godly Play and bible teaching to accommodate a longer session and the growing number of children in this group. Tanya Marwick and Anna Mohammedbai will lead the Godly Play session.

The rest of our groups leave the service during the first hymn and walk over to St Helen’s School which gives them the space to meet together for a talk by a visitor, group worship or singing and to be in groups for age appropriate bible teaching time.

On the second Sunday of the month we always start our session with singing together. We have also welcomed visitors to our JC including Richard (‘Grill the Rector’), John Grace presenting on our links with our Mission Partner, Joanna and Arndy L’Estrange and Claire Banham leading singing time.

Climbers (age 5-7, school years 1-2) – led by Sue Slater and Melanie Ebbage.

Adventurers (age 7-9, school years 3-4) – led by Janet Ling and Charlotte Tudway.

Seekers (age 9-11, school years 5-6) – led by Janet Dyson, Lucy Price and Peter Bailey.

Pathfinders (age 11-13, school years 7-8) – led by Carol Hopper and Adrian Jones.
