Children & Young People


We have a wide range of activities for children and young people.  Some are built around a programme of Christian teaching especially suitable for each age group. All have an emphasis on fun and learning together in a safe environment.
Your children are welcome whether or not you are a member of St. John's or any other church. We invite any children who may be visiting in the area or who would like to 'just try' our activities to come along to any of our groups. It would however be helpful if parents/guardians could contact the relevant leader so we can ensure your child is welcomed and encouraged to join in when they come along.

Each child should complete an Annual Medical Registration Form when joining our groups:
