When children come to St Thomas’s we want them to feel they are cared for and in a friendly environment. We want them to be excited about exploring the bible and hearing about Jesus. We want them to have fun and enjoy coming each week. We want them to know that they can make a difference where they are now and to feel encouraged to be a light for Jesus in their schools and community using the gifts God has given them. Most importantly, we want them to know that they are loved by God and are part of his family.
Read about our groups on Sundays; and on week days as well as special events which are held through out the year.
For children coming to Junior Church for the first time; they need a child's Registration and Parental Consent Form each. You can download a form to fill in or collect a paper copy from the Welcome Desk in Church.. This form must be completed and before your child may be left in Junior Church. Consent forms will also be available for visitors at each Junior church group.
For children who have been to Junior Church previously; Parents will receive an email asking them to check their child's details online and give consent for them to carry on coming to junior Church.
