St Christopher’s is blessed with a good number of children and young people as roughly one third of the congregation is under 18. Children and young people are valued and affirmed at St Christopher’s and their voice is heard at different levels of the congregation.
We are especially delighted that one of our worship teams is now made up almost entirely of young people. See our youth and children page for more details of what’s on offer.
Seedlings is our Play & Stay group, run entirely by volunteers. It's a very friendly group where you can bring your children and stay with them while they play with other children. You will have the chance to relax and meet other parents. There is a structured programme of activities each session which includes play time, craft time, story time, physical play, and of course snack time! It's free to come (although you can leave a donation if you feel able to), and you don't have to register beforehand. Just turn up and fill in a form when you get here.
Times (term time only):
Tuesdays 9:30am - 11:00am
Wednesdays 9:30am - 11:00am
Thursdays 9:30am - 11:00am
Due to the high number of people who enjoy coming to our Seedlings sessions, we ask that you come to EITHER Tuesday OR Wednesday OR Thursday - not more than once please!
