You and Your Family are Welcome


Children are an important part of St John’s, and we offer a variety of activities and groups for children and their families. Our aim is to be a user-friendly church where people of all ages find something for them.

God is Good and Church is Fun


At St. Johns children learn  what it means to be part of a church that lives out its faith, where young and not-so-young are valued for who they are and learn that it’s ok to make mistakes.

Children’s Ministry


The Church’s children’s ministry aims to build faith foundations for the rest of life, equipping children for the ups and downs of life. Our youth ministry helps young people to find and grow in Christian faith, together with lots of fun and food!

Along the way, we hope that children and young people will learn to know and love God for themselves and experience how much He loves them.


Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these”.
— (Mark 10.14)
