Children and Young People
All Ages are welcome at St Paul's. COSMIC, our children’s groups for those aged 5-16, usually runs each Sunday (except 4th of the month and during major school
holidays) during the 10.30am service at The Gryphon School. The children and young people join the early part of our service and then leave for their own worship and prayer, followed by a time of teaching in their own groups.
Through a full and varied programme of fun, story telling, discussion, games and craft activities we offer our children and young people relevant bible teaching to help them in following Jesus. Our Cosmic leaders are very used to having to answer difficult questions that the children ask! The children report back to the congregation towards the end of the service about what they have been doing.
Currently we have three groups, 5-11s, 11-12s and 13+. We use the Light Programme published by Scripture Union. A CRECHE also runs most weeks for children up to 4.
The 13+ group meets roughly once a month on a Sunday afternoon for an informal session in someone's home.
Social activities and trips are also run from time to time for the children who attend COSMIC. Activities include bowling, DVD evenings, games evenings, bike rides, camping, rambles, craft, swimming etc.
Contact the St Pauls Office for further information on any of the above.
