The children are very much part of the family at St. James' church and we enjoy joining with them in worship.


On most Sundays the children leave the church part way through the service and have their own group in the church hall with games, singing, craft and Bible teaching.

On some Sundays the children stay in church for the whole service. They are part of the church of today, not just the church of tomorrow. We want them to feel that they are members of the church, understand what is going on in the services and join in the worship of God.

We aim to help families enjoy worshipping together and feel able to discuss aspects of faith and worship throughout the week. 

Through the week

On Monday we run Baby Space for babies under 1 and their caregivers. Its a place to chat and get to know each other as well as eat cake. 

On Wednesday afternoons after school we run Refresh, aimed at children, young people and their families on their way home from school, offering refreshments and a selection of board games outside church (or in the porch on rainy days!).

On Thursday, 10-11.3am, we have ABC, our toddler group. ABC is for children and their caregivers from newborn up to when they start school. This a great opportunity to meet other parents and caregivers and for children to socialise. Please sign up on Eventbrite
