Youth and Family Activities

We try to offer opportunities for everyone to explore the Christian Faith and to come to know Jesus. There is no charge for any of these activities.


Messy Church logo


MESSY CHURCH is a chance to spend time together as a family; to enjoy fun and messy activities for all ages, to celebrate the bible theme of the day and to share a meal together.



Cygnets logo CYGNETS is a short monthly service for pre-school children and their carers. Held in St. James' Church on the 3rd Tuesday of each month our service includes musical instruments, action songs, a bible story simple prayers and an activity.

XStream logo XSTREAM is our youth group for young people in years 4, 5 and 6. We meet straight after school every other Tuesday during term time. After enjoying cake and a few games we have a look at a bible story and through drama and activities we think about how it affects our lives.


Our NEW YOUTH GROUP (we are waiting for the young people to name it!) begins on September 25th at 6pm - 7.30pm in Staveley Institute. It is for young people in yr 7 and above and will run every other Tuesday in term time. There will be time and space for young people to meet friends, play games, chill out, drink hot chocolate and chat about life.

We are running this new club in association with our Network Youth Church. For more information please contact Revd Shanthi
