Children & Youth at St Edwards
Children are welcome at all of our services but we especially aim to cater for children and youth during our 9.30 am and 11 am services as well as offering services and activities specifically for particular ages and stages.
During the 9.30 service…
Children can go out into the vestry during part of the service to take part in mixed age group fun activities supported by DBS-checked children’s team leaders. Toys and quiet activities are also available to use in the pews – please just ask one of our welcome team.
During the 11am service…
This service is designed to be more accessible for the whole family but there will also be some toys and quiet activities to use in pews as well as interactive parts of the service for everyone to take part in. At the front of the church on the right, there is a carpeted area where small children can play with some toys when supervised by a parent.
