Will my children dislike it?

Will my children dislike it?

Jesus valued children and young people in a way that was revolutionary, and whilst we can’t claim to be the only church in the world that makes a fuss of children, we’re sure your children will have a fantastic experience of St James’. You may also find it reassuring to know that all of our children’s leaders are police-checked.


During the 10:15am service on a Sunday we have Kids Church groups for all children. For the very littlest children, we run a creche with soft play and toy cars, so your children can safely play whilst you listen to the service through the speakers. Our other groups are organised by school year.

During coffee, after the service, we have Mario Karts and the latest version of Fifa to keep children entertained.

If you have any queries about the groups, please contact us, or just turn up.

For school years 7 to 13

If you’re aged 11 to 18, and want to make new friends, have fun, and learn more about Jesus, then come along to msg. Meeting fortnightly on Wednesdays 6:30-8pm @ St James’s Church, there’s food, chat, games, and a chance to think about the big issues of life. More details here.

Wednesday is your night. For Boys and girls we hold Zone. The group meet weekly, starting at 5:30pm, finish 7:00pm. Tea is included.
