Children and Families

Youth in the Benefice

Our growing ministry to young people is a high priority for us:

‘Wake up on Sunday’ is an informal, relaxed family get-together on the first Sunday of the month where children can enjoy interacting with Bible stories and parents can socialise. Of course, everyone is welcome at any service on any Sunday – we provide resources in church for children. 

Throughout the year we also offer a number of fun filled events aimed at our younger congregation, these have included:

Candlelit Lantern Procession                          Christmas Crib Services

Christingle                                                        Epiphany

Pancake Day & other fun                                 Good Friday Children’s Workshop

Easter Day early breakfast                               Church Barbecue & picnics

Harvest Festival                                                Harvest Supper

Southford Road Schoolrooms – The Ark Preschool

We would also like to share here that the Southford Road Schoolrooms, originally the St Saviour’s Church Hall, was modified many years ago to include a day-time nursery facility. The Ark Preschool is operating there now and their website link is here
