St Andrew’s continues to offer a wide variety of groups for our children and young people. On Sunday mornings during our 10 am worship we run a Junior Choir, Crèche, and Sunday school which cater for children virtually from birth until early teens. Our band regularly plays for both the family service on the first Sunday and the Sunday at 8 Service on the second Sunday of each month.
We currently run three youth groups for young people from the age of about nine through to 18+, these are programme-based youth groups and give our young people and those from the community a chance to meet together in a Church setting with Christian leaders to do a variety of activities. At the end of each term, these youth groups meet together for a Youth Service, which is followed by a disco, BBQ or wide game depending upon the time of year. These groups currently cater for a total of about 30 young people.
St Andrew’s also supports four uniformed groups of Guides, Brownie Guides and Rainbows who meet regularly during term time and occasionally attend our monthly Family Service.
In the summer for four days and for one day in the Spring we run our holiday club that operates for about 160 â€’ 200 children and gives a variety of activity, games and crafts wrapped up with singing and learning about characters and stories from the Bible. For our Spring event we now hold a ‘Family Fun Day’ with an emphasis on Family. The event invites families to come along together and enjoy taking part in a variety of crafts, activities and workshops.
