 Sunday Kids


Due to the current Coronavirus Pandemic, Kids & Youth work at St Mary's has changed massively, however, we are still here and trying to do as much for you as possible!

Things we have available at the moment are;

Sunday Youth

Our Sunday youth club takes place every Sunday morning at 9.30am.

It is for Young People that go to Secondary School. We meet in Rooms 3&4 (or in the garden if the weather is nice!)

It is a time where we can hang out, have a bible study/discussion, pray, play games and have fun!

Please contact Lauren by email (click here), if you might be interested.

Youth Bible Study

Our Youth Bible Study is for Young People that go to Secondary School.

It happens on a Monday evening from 7pm-8pm (during term time) at the Church in Rooms 3&4. As restrictions ease, it will be at Sam & Lauren’s house again. We do a short Bible study while also enjoying some games and snacks.

Please contact Lauren by email (click here), if you might be interested.


Smallsorts is our Parent & Toddler Group, it runs on Thursday mornings, Term-time. Due to Covid restrictions, we have a reduced capacity just now, so there are 2 sessions running and spaces must be booked beforehand. The sessions are 9.45am-10.45am and 11am-12pm. The entry cost is £1 per child.

We provide toys including; slides/small climbing frame, tents and tunnels, Duplo, building blocks, train track, cars, Happyland and a baby section with baby toys. We will also provide a craft and tea/coffee for the grown ups!  We have a beautiful outdoor space with a cabin full of outdoor toys too. We will use this space when the weather is sunny and dry!

Online - yes, we are online!

Family Afternoon Adventure

Family Afternoon Adventure happens every Sunday afternoon from 2.30pm – 4pm. It is for all ages and it’s free! We meet at a different location each week (The Naze, St Mary’s church car park, Soken Wood, Birch Hall,etc).

Sam leads the group for a walk, games, bushcraft, challenges and more! There is also a Bible story, a testimony or a short talk. Children must be accompanied by an adult.
