Children are very welcome at both our churches and we want them to be able to worship God in their own way. We have toy bags for those children who prefer to stay in church with their parents and a children’s corner in both our churches (and parents – we also have toilets with nappy changing facilities!).

The following are also particularly child friendly:


Crèche room always avaliable for preschool children and babies at St Mary’s during the main Sunday service. Toy bags available for all young children in both our churches.
