Youth and Children

We love our families and all those involved at Grace Church with children and youth!

The good news of Jesus is for all of us, whatever our age. We run a full programme of activities to help children get to know Jesus better – all whilst having fun and making friends.  

Safeguarding is a vital part of how we run our Children’s work at Grace Church as we ensure that children can flourish and be protected.  Visit our safeguarding page to find out more.

Children’s talks

We think that it is an important principle, that families worship together and children see their parents and other adults worshipping the Lord.
Therefore, we start our services with children and parents together. A highlight for our younger members is our Children’s talk, a short teaching moment where we present the theme Bible verse for that Sunday in a fun and accessible way!

Creche & Sunday school

During the meeting childcare is available. Our crèche, Sunday School and Bridge youth group enable children aged up to 14 to hear about Jesus in a fun and safe environment.

For our little ones up to 3 years, we offer a Crèche service, manned by our trained and safeguarding checked volunteers.

For older children (4-11), we will provide a fun and interactive Sunday School lesson, where we look at stories from the Bible, sing songs, do crafts, learn memory verses and play games.


Bridge is the St Helen’s youth Bible study groups, open to anyone in school years 7–9 (ages 11–14). Groups meet every Friday during term time in St Andrew’s Church from 7–9pm.
