Children and Families

St Giles 3:16

St Giles’ 3:16 is our children and young people’s group that meets during our 10:15 Sunday Service at St Giles’ Church. It is for those aged 3 to 16 years old.

We have our own room where we learn about God, Jesus and all the special people in the Bible. We also have our own special prayers (some of them have lots of silly actions). We have even written our own Lord’s prayer! We have lots of different fun activities,  we design posters and pictures, we act our stories from the Bible and play games that help us to learn about all God’s people. Everyone loves it when we come back into church and tell them what we have been doing and what we have learned.

We would LOVE you to come and join us and share in the fun.

There is no age limit so if you have a baby brother or sister they can come with you. Your Mummy or Daddy can come as well.

We come back into church in time for our blessing and so our parents can take communion.

For further information please contact us.
