Welcome to the St Stephen’s kids page. Here at St Stephen’s we want to be a church ‘offering life in Jesus to all’, and our vision for children is no different. We long to see children living life to the full, flourishing in a close relationship with Jesus; and as a church we aim to partner with parents as they navigate and nurture their child’s growing faith. In line with this there are a variety of things we run which you might be interested in.

SUNDAYS

We’d love to see you on a Sunday! At our 10.30am service in particular there are a number of things we offer to help families enjoy church together. Click on the options below to find out more.

NORTH TRANCEPT & PRAYER CHAPEL (UNDER 1s)

We believe that modelling faith to children is super important so we have multiple comfy spaces in church for you to enjoy the service and worship alongside your little ones. We also have a separate room called the prayer chapel for you to use if your child is a little fidgety, you are after some privacy or in need of time to catch up with other parents. This space allows for a little more noise but also has a screen displaying a live feed from church.

KIDS CHURCH (1-11 years)

After a time of sung worship all together in the church, we invite you to leave your children with our amazing team of volunteers in Kids Church for 1hr 15mins exploring the Bible in fun and exciting ways and encountering God through worship, prayer.

The Spring Group

Children can join this group after they turn one.

The Maple Group

Children born between September 2014 and August 2016

The Oak Group

Children in school years Reception – Year 4

The Chestnut Group

Additional Needs:

We want everyone to feel welcome and at home here at St Stephen’s! If your family have any additional needs, we would love to chat to you about the best way we can support you all. We know your first visit can often be the most difficult, so please feel free to contact us to chat even before you come. We have a great team of buddies who can work 1-2-1 with children in Kids Church and would love to chat to you about anything else we can to do to help your family settle well at St Stephens.

ALL AGE SERVICE

10.30am Service | The Church

All Age services are a great opportunity several times a year to worship as family, with a theme and style that is accessible for all.

OTHER EVENTS

Year 5/6 Socials

We want Kids Church to be a place where children make great friends who can journey with them despite perhaps living in separate places and going to separate schools. As such we run regular social evenings for our year 5 and 6s: chilled nights, cinema trips, picnics, games afternoons, crazy golf – the options are endless! Get in touch with Emma if you’d like to know more about our next event.

Rainbow Club

Easter Holidays | The Church
Rainbow Club is our annual fun-filled Easter holiday club for children from reception age through to year 6. Keep an eye out for details of our 2019 event early in the new year.
