Children and Families
St George's run a number of regular groups for children and families, including a toddler group, an after school all age group, an evening children's group, a youth group and young people's groups on a Sunday morning.
Children are found at the heart of many gospel stories and therefore in serving Jesus, we love to serve the community by putting things on for young people. Monday club runs during term time for any young people aged 7-11 at 6.15 p.m. for an hour each Monday. There is lots of fun, games, crafts and a story to think about. The young people who come love it and come from all over the parish.
Our all age group is exactly that; from babes in arms, children and teenagers through to mums, dads and even great grandparents who enjoy being part of the fun. We meet every other (click for dates) Wednesday at 4.30 p.m. and enjoy crafts, games and friendship, but no two weeks are alike.
At the end, most people stay to share a simple meal together. we always get a chance to stop and think about the bigger things of life by looking at a bible story and see how God can guide us in this busy and unpredictable world.
Every Tuesday from 9.15am during term time, the church toddlers group meets for parents, carers and infants age 0-4 for fun and friendship in the church rooms.
St George's toddler group gives you the chance to meet others with young children in a safe environment and have some fun in the process. There are plenty of age appropriate toys spread over two rooms, enabling smaller children to roam safely without stopping older children enjoying themselves.
The toddler group also provides refreshments, singing and sometimes includes an infant friendly bible story. At Christmas we have a toddler services in the church and there is a picnic in the summer.

Young people on Sunday
Young people are welcome to all our services and there is a creche and play area in church if parents feel it appropriate. The 10 a.m. service is very informal and children are included in the service, particularly at the monthly family cafe church on the second Sunday of each month.
On other Sundays at 10 a.m. there are optional groups for 3-11 year olds where young people are able to have some fun and learn a bit more about God, Jesus, faith and life. Helping our young people to grow up with a richer understanding of faith in the real world is at the heart of our church, particularly in a world that can be so unpredictable and challenging where faith can help us put everything in its right perspective.
11-14's also have their own optional group on some sundays.
Youth Venture holidays
Every year, thousands of young people go on venture camps. There are camps for 11-14 year olds and 14-18 year olds. Rob and Margaret Bianchi run 3 of the dozens of camps that take place around the country at Blaithwaite in the Lake District. The camps consist of outdoor activities, fun events, games, music and time to stop and think about faith in life. You can download a booking form with more details here.
