Sunday Groups

 

Children are a very welcome and important part of the St. James family.

Services on the first and third Sundays of the month are for all ages together with plenty of content that children will enjoy.

Sunday groups are available during the main part of the service on 2nd, 4th and 5th Sundays. Children begin in church with their parents and leave part-way through the service to join their own, age-appropriate teaching groups.

A signed registration form is needed for children attending Sunday groups. Please print a form HERE or collect one from the information desk in the Church Centre after the service on a Sunday.

 

Covid Safety

Measures are in place to ensure that groups operate as safely as possible. Children and adults will sanitise their hands at the start and end of each group session. If you or your child have cough or cold symptoms please stay at home this Sunday and join us online instead. Thank you.

 

 

Babies and Toddlers

Parents are very welcome to keep young children with them during the service. A children’s corner is available on the carpeted area at the back right of the church with quiet toys and books for little ones. Please use this area as needed. On weeks when older children go out to Sunday groups, a creche area is also available in the Centre for young children who need to let off steam. Parents are welcome to stay with their children or leave them and return to church when the creche is supervised.

 

 

 

 

Bubbles

Children join Bubbles in the September after they turn three and stay until the end of school Year 1. Bubbles meets in the Hatch Room of the Church Centre, opposite the Creche. Children join the group part-way through the morning service to enjoy their own fun-based session including a Bible story and craft. Parents please bring children to the group as directed after the opening worship, and return to church when they are settled. You will be directed to collect them later in the service. Parents of children with additional needs are very welcome to stay with them. Children who are not quite ready for Bubbles are very welcome to use the creche until Bubbles is right for them.

 

 

Splash

Splash is a fun group for children in school years 2 - 5.

Children will return to church with their leaders in time for communion at the end of the service.
