youth & children...

We think children and young people are a very important part of Church life and do our best to make them welcome.

There are a number of different ways we seek to do this. Here are some of them.


CHILDREN are very welcome at St John’s.  Activities to occupy toddlers and primary age children are available, although these are unsupervised, so we must ask you to keep an eye on your children.

The Parent and Toddler Group meets on Monday & Thursday mornings 9.15 – 11.30am upstairs in the Parish Centre on Wentworth Street.

Toddler Services are held once a month at 9.30am on a Thursday – please see the calendar on our home page.

St.John’s Pre-School meets every morning downstairs in the Parish Centre FOR MORE INFORMATION CLICK HERE.
