Children and Youth at St Peter's

Please not that there will not be any formal children's groups during the summer holidays.


All our children and youth groups are currently suspended but please contact us if you want information.


At St Peter’s we aim to build a true church family; having children in our fellowship is a delight and a responsibility. Please support us in prayer as we seek to encourage our children in their journey of faith. 

Our Sunday school meet on the second, third and fourth Sundays in the Church Hall. On the first Sunday of the month the whole church family usually worships together. 

Play Cafe

(Parent and Toddler Group) meets every Wednesday morning during term time from 10am until 12 noon in the Church Hall

Adults must be accompanied by at least one baby or toddler. All are very welcome to come for coffee, chatter and play. Plenty of fun… we have a broad range of toys, organised creative messy play, outside garden, a book corner, quiet space for the tiny tots, singing and story-time. It would be really great to see you, so please feel free to come along and check us out.

Sunday School

Meets on Sunday mornings starting in Church and then moving to the Church Hall. When there is All Age Worship children stay in church with their parents for the entire service.

Sunday school is for ages from 4-11. Children are asked to arrive at church for the 10.30am service with their parents and, after the first hymn, Sunday School children go down to the Church Hall.  A rota of teachers are on hand to tell stories and run simple activities to help children learn about Jesus. Sessions are made up of some Bible teaching, discussion, prayer, craft, drama and art.

 (Under 4s are welcome - with an accompanying adult.)

Youth Group

Our teenagers meet roughly every 6 weeks for an informal gathering at someone’s home.  We have a meal, play games and discuss our faith as it relates to our lives now.  We have a group of leaders who organise this.  For more information contact:

Information for parents

Children start off in church every Sunday. On the second and fourth Sunday we bring them up to church after their separate sessions to join in Communion.


On the other Sundays [except when there is All Age Worship]  the children stay in the Church Hall until you collect them.


We ask that you:

make sure your children are wearing clothes suitable for various activities. 


Let us know if your child has any allergies or problems we should be aware of.


Come and collect your child/children and enjoy tea and coffee with us as soon as the service is over.
