Junior Church at St John's

Children are always welcome. On the first Sunday of the month we have an All Age Worship service during which the children remain in Church, but on the other Sundays there is Sunday School. The children may sometimes share what they have been doing with the congregation, and will display some of their artwork on a notice board in the Narthex.

St John's Choir

The St John's Choir is made up of adults and young people who accompany every Sunday 10 am service, together with other festivals and occasions. Choir Practice is every Friday evening in the church. For more information see our Music page.

Children's Ministry

Sunday School is not just somewhere to put the children while the adults get on with the real thing, but is a vital evangelism and discipleship opportunity for the generation that will be running the Church in 20 years time.

God reaches out in love to every child and desires a relationship with them. Youth Ministry is a critical ministry of the church, and is everyone's responsibility, not just volunteers and parents. All of us can show the children a church full of life and love for God and those around them.

If you would like to become part of this ministry please speak to a member of the Ministry Team or our Church Warden.
