Children (and their grown up’s are most welcome in our Church!)
Our thriving Sunday School meets every Sunday morning during the service to teach children about Jesus and what it means to follow him. We have an enthusiastic team of volunteer leaders, providing a safe and fun environment for the younger children to discover the wonder of God’s love for them. Sessions include stories, prayers, games and craft activities to help each child explore the themes of the weekly Bible stories.
Older Youth Group
In addition, we have second group for young people aged 9 and over. The leaders deliver a varied Bible based programme, designed to help young people explore and grow in faith, helping to prepare them for the adult world. Again, this group meets in during the service.
We also provide a children’s corner at the back of Church which is kitted out with toys, games and books. This can be freely accessed during the service by younger children and their parents should they wish to do so.
We hold a Messy Church once a month for our Benefice at Thurgoland Church. The sessions are usually held on the third Sunday of each month beginning at 4.00p.m. All ages are welcome to join in, although children must be accompanied by an adult. Messy Church provides a great opportunity to explore some Bible stories through Messy activities. Each session is completely free and finishes with buffet tea.
