Children and Youth

Children and youth of all ages are welcome at All Souls!

 

Living as God’s Children

We want to help young people come to know Christ, live as God’s children in the world and persevere as Christians into adulthood. We teach the Bible, build good relationships with them and have fun together. We also support parents and guardians in their vital role as the primary disciplers of their children.

Sundays

However old you are, from 0–18, join us on a Sunday at one of our services. We don’t have all our usual Children’s and Youth activities but we’ve tried to make sure there’s still something for everyone!

Babies & Toddlers (0–2½)

9.30am Morning Service

There is a family space available in the Waldegrave Hall for those with babies and toddlers. This is unsupervised but parents with young children are welcome to use this area during the service.


Children (2½–4)

9.30am Morning Service

We are running Scramblers during the 9.30am service but you must sign up in advance. Parents will receive an email during the week with details of how to sign up. Please contact our C Zone team for more details.

Children (5–11)

9.30am Morning Service

We are encouraging all families with children over 5 to attend our 9.30am ‘All In’ morning service. This is an all-age service specifically designed to welcome families back to church. We hope to see you then!

Mountaineers (Children with additional needs)

Please contact Anna Sharp to find out more about our current Mountaineers programme.


Youth (school years 7–13)

9.30am Morning Service, 5.30pm Evening Service

Youth aren’t meeting at SPRAS on a Sunday at the moment, but instead we’re inviting families and youth to attend either our 9.30am or 5.30pm Sunday services. We are back at SPRAS on a Friday though so make sure you join us for that!

 

Midweek Babies and Toddlers

Pre-school Groups

Our baby and toddler groups are great fun for local parents, carers, expectant mums and pre-school children. At the current time, morning groups are only taking place on Mondays and Tuesdays.

 

Midweek Youth

Our Friday night G Force and Revolution groups are back! We meet on Friday evenings during term-time for games, Bible study and worship. It’s a great way to make friends and get to know people; if you’re currently at secondary school, make sure you come along!

 

Children and Youth Events

Alongside our Sunday and midweek programmes we hold other events throughout the year; weekends away, outings, all-age services, Easter holiday club, a children’s programme at Cornerstone (the All Souls Church summer holiday) and more!

Keep an eye out for details of upcoming events.

Children and Youth Ministers

Trevor, Kate and Anna lead our ministry to children and youth aged 0-18. They’re assisted by other members of staff, Ministry Trainees and a large group of volunteers from the church family as we help and encourage our children to grow in Christ.

All staff and volunteers working with children and youth attend training each year and undergo child protection checks (DBS).

 

Safeguarding Policy

We take the safety of our children and young people very seriously, and want to create safe places where they can grow and flourish. Our safeguarding representatives and guidelines are detailed in our policy, linked below.
