Children, Young People & Families

Sunday Morning Groups

We feel passionately that everyone is part of the church family and so children and young people are welcome to all of our services.

Our 11 o’clock service, on Sunday mornings, is particularly well geared up for children of any age.

For parents of babies and very small children, there is a play area situated near the back of the church on the right hand side. There are toys and games to entertain babies and toddlers. You are welcome to feed your baby anywhere in our church without feeling embarrassed. And when the inevitable happens and you have a screaming child, please don’t worry, we’re very used to noise during our 11am service. Nappy changing mats are available in the toilet area and if you bring a push chair, you are welcome to put it anywhere, but the south porch is usually the best place.

For school age children our Sunday morning groups are at 11am, we start and end together in church and then meet in the church hall to explore what it means to have Jesus as our Saviour and Friend. The groups will last for about 40/45 minutes. If your child/ren would like to join our groups but you are unable to attend church then feel free to bring them to the church and then pick them up from church around 12.15.

The second Sunday of each month will be an Altogether Service in church, 11am to 12 noon, where those children who wish to will take an active role. There will be no children’s groups in the church hall.

Kangas and Roos

Kangas and Roos is the name of our Parent/Carer and Toddler Group. We welcome babies and pre-school children to come and play.

We meet together every Tuesday, during school term time, from 1.00pm until 2.30pm in the church hall. Parents stay with their children and enjoy a cuppa and a natter!

We have lots of toys to play with (fun and educational), a craft corner, mats and toys specifically for babies, bikes and slides for older children and a story time at the end.

Refreshments are served every week: a cuppa and a biscuits for the parents/carers, and fruit, juice, crisps and biscuits for the toddlers. and the cost is only £1.00 per family. The craft is very simple and always ties in with the story. We sing nursery rhymes and end with our own special prayer.


NRGcolour NRG is one of St. Lawrence’s  exciting midweek groups for children.

It’s for First School Children – Reception to Year 4. There are lots of activities and it’s great fun.

It meets every Monday during term time in our church hall. There’s a welcome, with drinks and a snack, straight after school from 3.30pm onwards, before NRG starts at 4.00pm. It ends at 5.30p.m.

There is a small charge of £2 per week to cover the cost of NRG.

NRG+ is our club for young people in school years 5-8

It meets at the same time as NRG, 4.00-5.30pm (with drinks & a snack from 3.30), on Monday evenings during term time in the church hall.

It would be great to see you there.
