Children & Young People

If you come with children to one of our services, we have designed some activities which we hope will encourage them to engage in our worship together. For children aged 3-7, there is an activity bag available. For children aged 7-11 there is an activity folder as well as a 'ROOTS' sheet for them to complete. For 0-3 year olds, there is a special red activity bag for them and you may find our ‘Activity areas’ helpful during the service where there are books and other resources. All the Activity bags, Activity folders and ROOTS sheets can be found at the back of the church.   
 

Services particularly suitable for children and young people are:

All Age Worship
On the first Sunday of the month at Stalham, all age worship is a shortened informal service.  Our music group provide the music, and would welcome new members.  We sing lively songs and there is normally some kind of interactive talk (non-threatening!).    At St Michael's Church in Sutton the service on the first Sunday of the month also has an all-age feel.

M:POWER
On the last Sunday of the month at Stalham, at 6.30pm, this is a multi-sensory Communion service, where activities help us think about the theme before we share Communion together. The service is suitable for, and attended by, all ages. After the service there are doughnuts and hot chocolate to enjoy! For more news go to the M:POWER facebook page - click here.

Green Shoots
On the second Sunday of the month at Stalham Church Room, at 4.00pm, this is a family-friendly, short and interactive service which uses all our senses.  Refreshments are provided.  To keep up with the latest news, why not 'like' Green Shoots on Facebook?  Just click here.

Saturday Specials
We hold Saturday activity mornings every so often, based on different times of the Christian year, for children aged up to 12.  Children under 7 need to be accompanied by an adult.
The activity mornings are from 10am to midday, held in St Mary's Church in Stalham, and normally include lots of craft activities based around the theme.  The morning finishes with a short and lively service.  The whole family is welcome to stay and refreshments are available in the tower area.  Our next event will actually be on a Saturday evening - our Light Party (alternative to Halloween) on 31st October, 5pm - 7pm.  Free - all welcome.
