Children & Youth

The church of today...

The importance of children and youth

Enjoying Xplorers

Children and youth are the church of today. At St Mary's we have a growing children's work. This group is called Xplorers and meets at  9.30am in church and then after the first part of the service we head off to the Barn (at the end of Church Lane) We are very pleased with our new building and you can check on the project by clicking here .
St Mary's church has adopted the Diocese of Ely's child  protection policy and all workers with the children are 'enhanced' CRB checked. (Please follow our interesting documents link at the foot of  this page). We usually have a drink and biscuit and a wide variety of craft and fun activities. We are regularly involved in leading the prayers. At the end of the service we come to the front and share with everyone the exciting things we have been doing. 
This work is coordinated by Chris Westgarth and Cindy O'Connell and a team of very able helpers.


illumin8 youth service

We meet on the first Sunday of the month 6-7.30pm in different church buildings around the area. We worship God through music, drama, exploring the bible together and every 2nd month sharing communion. We also work closely with WCCYM and the Isaiah 58 project.

Work with local schools

We work closely with local schools and are often invited to be involved with Collective Worship and RE lessons. We encourage church members to support schools in a variety of ways - as volunteers, governors, visitors, praying for the school community and the giving of resources. Our church building is often used for visits and worksheets, detective trails and refreshments are provided. There is usually the opportunity to ring the bells -a very popular experience!

School visit
The living church

The Living Church is an excellent resource book published by Barnabas. This book contains a number of ideas and activities to help churches make the visit of schools to the church building more relevant. For more information please follow the link below
