Children and young people
At St Margaret's children and young people are as much part of the church of today as anyone else! We welcome you whatever age you are.
There are lots of activities for different ages.
We care passionately about children. We want our children to have fun in a safe environment and grow up knowing that God is loving, that Jesus is their friend and that the Holy Spirit is God’s power in their lives. We want them to meet with God!
There are a good number of children
in each of the various age groups. The groups are led by volunteers who give their very best each
week to ensure the children are having lots of fun learning about Jesus.
We follow the Church of England's Child Protection policy for all those
involved with children and young people.
During the service all those caring for children are welcome to move around and may like to make use of the children's area which is by the door as you come in. There is room for children to move around during worship and use the books or colouring materials. There are also seats for those accompanying them to use. Carers can also sit to the left of this image in the main part of the church.
