Youth and Children
Youth and Children’s Ministry
Children and young people are not only our future, but they are our present and as such it is our priority to nuture their faith, care for them and ensure they feel safe and welcome in our Church environment. Despite our formal and traditional liturgy, children are encouraged to be themselves and it is our hope that they feel free to express their love of God in their own way. We have a thriving Sunday school which meets during the Sunday Mass every week. Young people are encouraged to join the serving team. We have a junior Choir which practices each Friday in term time and sings the Sunday service once per month. One Sunday per month (usually the first Sunday) is an All Age Mass, where the sermon is geared for a younger worshipper and all the readings and prayers are led by young people.
We have a children’s area in the Church with faith and non-faith related activities. We are proud to have a table-tennis table and a table football table in the Church, and it gets regular use!
