Children and young people are valued members of our church community and they are an important part of the life of All Saints. As children grow and learn we aim support them and their parents in their journey of life and faith.
Junior Church takes place during our 10 am Sunday Service. Children begin the service with their families and friends in the main church, then go downstairs to the crypt for their activities. They are brought back in time for Holy Communion. Junior church includes stories, activities and games enabling young people to make friends, learn about the Bible, prayer and growing in faith.
smAll Saints meets weekly on a Friday morning at 10.30am in the church. It is a service designed for the very young and their parents and carers. Ages range from new-born babies to 5 years old. Sometimes older siblings come along and they are very welcome. We begin by ringing the bell and then gather in a circle to pray, listen to a story and sing lovely songs. Stories are usually from the Bible, folk tales, about one of the Saints of we think about the seasons of the church year. At the end of the service we gather in the North Aisle for refreshments (tea and coffee for adults and soft drinks for the children), fun activities such as crafts, making bread or enjoying the church garden if the weather fine. At Christmas we have our own smAll Saints nativity and will also mark Easter in some way. In July we have our own sports day in the vicarage garden and have often had a special trip out to visit Southwark Cathedral.

Our 11 to 18 year olds are welcome on Sunday mornings and are involved in our services. We plan social events such as pizza and bowling, cinema trips and barbecues.
