Provision for children between 5 & 8 years old

It is important that children get to know other children within the church, those in different year groups and from different schools. This helps them to grasp the wide variety that there is in God’s big family. A church is one of the few places in our community where children can not only meet children who are outside their circle but also adults from a variety of different backgrounds and walks of life.

On a Sunday

Open Door

Children of all ages are part of the Open Door service which begins at 10.00am in the historic church and enables everyone to worship God together, by singing, praying, hearing from the Bible and experiencing what it means to be part of God’s big family.

Xstream logoXstream

Children aged 5 to 8 years old (Years 1, 2 & 3) join the Xstream! group halfway through the Open Door service, around 10.30am. This is in the St Paul's Centre. Here they worship and talk with God, listen to and read the Bible, sing, play games, make and play – and grow in their love for God. The group uses Scripture Union's Light teaching material.

The team of leaders are trained and supervised and we place a high value on safeguarding our children. For more details contact – or 020 8349 3792.
