Kids & Youth on Sunday
Children and young people are a vital part of our community at St Matthew’s. We have several groups to suit different ages and each is run according to our Child Protection Policy by accredited leaders in a safe and suitable environment.
Here are activities on Sundays—see the community page for other groups that happen through the week.
Children & Families
Sunday Club runs alongside service (or more accurately underneath in the hall) at 10.30am. All children below the age of 11 are welcome with younger children accompanied by parents as you like. Feel free to join in with the activities or make use of the many toys we have. We have fun exploring Christian Faith together through games, Bible stories, crafts and whatever else we can think of and if that wasn't enough we have access to our fabulous garden.
Youth meets term-time on Sundays from 6.30pm where the whole building is exclusively ours. We get to hang out together, discover the ultimate hiding spaces or kick back on the sofas and find out what our friends have been getting up to. We finish up with a meal and thinking about how Jesus is relevant to everything we do through the week. In this spirit, many of our group also take the opportunity to volunteer to serve in a variety of ways on a Sunday or raise money for some of our mission partners. We try and get away for an annual weekend, usually in September.
