Children & Young People

All people, of any age, are welcome in church and are valued members of our community.  Noise and movement aren't a problem to us - we all worship in different ways and we're always delighted to have youngsters with us at any service!  We understand that it's not always easy though, so do check out our top tips for being in church with children.

We encourage children and young people take an active part in our worship, whether that's with specific roles such as servers and readers, or by following what's going on and joining in as much as possible.  Our Monday Mass for all-ages is particularly aimed at children and families, and once a month we all worship together in church on a Sunday, too.

On other Sunday mornings, children are welcome to stay in church with their carers, if that is what they and you are happiest with. However, they may prefer to go to Sunday School which meets in the church hall.

We also have an active Church Lad's and Girls' Brigade which meets in the hall during the week and a Harvest Queen.

A number of local schools require regular church attendance as part of their admissions criteria.  To find out more about this, please click here.
