Junior Church

CREATION - Presented to St Cuthberts on its 50th anniversary by the Shaw family

The Junior Church meets at 11am on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Sundays in St. Cuthbert's Church on Colburn Lane (Note; In a 5 week month Junior Church will also be on the 4th Sunday). It is open to children and young people of 3 years of age and over. Diocesan procedures for the care and safeguarding of children and young people are strictly followed.

Members enjoy age-appropriate Christian teaching which often involves games, sticking, colouring and glueing. Much of their work can be seen on the walls of St. Cuthbert's Community Hall. They contribute to each Sunday service and are responsible for much of the content of the Family Service on the last Sunday of the month.

Through teaching, fun and friendship children gain a very good grounding in the Christian faith and become confident in sharing that faith with the regular congregation and others. Many choose to progress to confirmation, when they themselves declare the faith that was given to them at baptism. Others who have not been baptised can choose to explore baptism and confirmation together.
