Children and Youth

St John’s offers a range of groups and activities for children and young people. Sunday morning groups are provided during the 10:30am service for children aged 0 to 16 years. Groups for young people aged 11 to 18 years also meet on Friday and Sunday evenings – see the youth page for details.

We aim to offer a fun and safe environment for young people to develop a strong and lasting relationship with Jesus.


Children’s groups take place on 2nd, 3rd, and 4th Sundays during the 10:30am service.

Safeguarding / Child protection

St John’s takes the safety and protection of children very seriously. We insist on CRB checks for all people involved in youth work or who have regular contact with children and young people. In addition, we run training courses on safeguarding to ensure that those who work with young people are aware of all the risks.

Our safeguarding officer, Ann Thurgood, is the person to contact if you have any concerns around the welfare of a child or adult with vulnerability. Ann can be contacted on 07810 214181 or via email to Read our safeguarding policy here.
