Youth within the Church


Each Sunday morning services (except summer holidays) we run a cheche for babies to around 3 years old.

All helpers have been PVG checked and generally some of the parents will also join the helpers and children.

Young Church

Sunday School and Bridges for young people between the ages of 3 and 11 each Sunday morning. The young people are under the guidance of fully trained Sunday school teachers. The teaching staff use material from SALT, and other material produced by the relevant religious education companies, including Video and DVDs.

An annual prize giving us held every year and the children are involved with Bible readings, prayers and singing and the children enjoy taking part and being part of the Church.

Bridges looks after the young people from the age of twelve. There is an emphasis within the Church to make the children an integral part of our worship and the Kirk Session encourage them to participate in communion with their parents / guardians.
