Young People & Old Church
Children and young people are most welcome at Old Church. The 10.15am service on the second Sunday of each month is devised as all-age worship in which children and adults are invited to stay together for the length of the service. On other Sundays, children of around primary school age are invited to join Junior Church which meets at the Dorothy Parkes Centre nearby.
Junior Church meets during morning service. The children leave during the opening hymn and re-join the service in time for communion. The activity takes place at the Dorothy Parkes Centre, which is close to the church. Many of the resources used at Junior Church are created by the adults who take responsibility for the work; we sometime use commercial resources, including the Roots publications for children. You can see some of these resources on the Roots website.
Little Lights is for pre-school children and those new to church. It takes place on the First Sunday of the month in a room off the main worship area of the church. Activities include singing together with Bible-based crafts and games. The children leave the service in the opening hymn and re-join in time for communion.
Fully accredited adults are always present to supervise these sessions.
