We welcome children and young families at St Mary’s, and offer all sorts of activities: at church on Sundays but also at groups throughout the week and at special events and clubs which take place during the year.

Children at St Mary’s learn about friendship with Jesus through songs, Bible stories, prayer, craft and games.


A creche area with toys and books (for under 3’s) is available in the side chapel during the 11am service on Sundays. Please note that this area is unsupervised.


Explorers (for ages 3-11, meet in St Mary’s Room after family worship and prayers during the 11am service in term time, except from on Family Worship Sundays (the first Sunday of each month). 


BabyZone is a friendly place to meet other parents and their new babies (under 1) for coffee and a chat. Every week we offer space to play, chat and share experiences.

BabyZone is currently running with covid precautions in place. Booking is required and spaces are limited, (but we will add more sessions to increase capacity if there is demand). Please get in touch or check our Facebook page for the latest information. You can use the buttons below to download some fun activities to do with your baby at home, and join our Facebook page to chat, share ideas, and support one another.


Toddler Church is a short and interactive service for toddlers, babies and their new parents/carer.

We are not meeting physically at the moment due to the current isolation and social distancing measures, but we’re still here! Every Thursday we are releasing a new Toddler Church video with activities for you to join in with at home. Click the button below to explore!
