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.

 

 

Toddlers

Every Tuesday from 9.30am during term time, the church toddlers group meets for parents, carers and infants age 0-4 for fun and friendship in the church.

 

Starting back on the 28th September, booking will be required as numbers are being limited (to start with) to 15 adults and 15 children)

 

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 around 

 

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 are tables at the back that families can sit around if you prefer. The 10 a.m. service is quite informal and children are often included in the service.

 

We know some parents feel uncomfortable when little ones make a noise or run around, but you really are very welcome as, just as Jesus welcomed babies and little children, so do we!

 

On Sundays at 10am, 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.

 

These (below) will restart or be revamped in the coming months as we slowly return to normal

 

Monday Club

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.

All Age

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 are planning to revamp all age and start afresh in the coming months

 

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.

11-14's also have their own optional group on some sundays. and a new youth group will be starting at the vicarage in the coming weeks.

 

Details to follow soon.

 

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 help 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.
