Lighthouse – Kids and Youth


At St Mary’s we want all our children and young people to experience God’s amazing love, have the opportunity to get to know Jesus as their friend and to flourish and grow as individuals on their own faith journey.

Each month we have a pattern of different Sunday sessions. On the first and third Sundays of each month, our young people are invited to join Lighthouse and Little Fishes groups which take place in the church rooms during the Sunday morning services. On the second Sunday our wonderful Forest Church gathers outside, usually at 10am or 3pm and on the fourth Sunday it’s Breakfast Church where people of all ages are invited to share a simple breakfast followed by a short informal service.

Meet Ellie, our new Children and Youth Worker at St Mary’s. Ellie will be with us on the first and third Sundays of the month leading our Lighthouse group.


Forest Church is a venture for parents with toddlers & young (Key Stage 1 approx) children. We meet on the second Sunday of each month at 10am at St Mary’s Church where is a range of activities, simple prayers and thoughts. We love to see new faces so if you haven’t been before, why not come along to the next session.
