St Peter's has very active youth and children's groups on Sunday mornings and during the week. There's something for young people from birth to young adults, as you'll see below. All children and young people are welcome at our groups.
If you wish to keep your children with you during the service, we have a children's area with resources for children's worship, plus other activities. If babies or younger children become restless, please feel free to walk around with them or take them out for a short time. The church has plenty of room for pushchairs.
Young Church - children in school years Reception - Year 7, plus a crèche for 0 - 3 year olds
Young Church meets in church at the beginning of the service (10am), then (after the first hymn and a prayer) moves into Cornerstone for Bible stories, teaching and activities. Young Church ends with prayers and we rejoin the main service in time for communion.
Please contact the Cornerstone Office for more details.
Tower Teens - school year 8+
Tower Teens is our Sunday morning youth group. They meet at 10:00 am in the Bell Tower - hence the name - and join the rest of the congregation in time for communion. Please contact the Cornerstone Office for more details.
NOTE: Young Church and Tower Teens do not meet on the second Sunday of every month when there is an All-age Service.
St Peter′s Young Church Prayer
As we go into Young Church
Help us to learn with you by our sides,
Love with you in our hearts
and live with you in our lives.
Thursday 10.00-11.30am in Cornerstone
This is a very informal group where parents/carers with young children can get together to meet new friends. It's a great place to chat, and maybe to share ideas on bringing up children.
The very young ones enjoy learning to play with others before starting nursery or play group. There is a craft activity each week and a story and singing to end the time together.
You are welcome to join us.
The Girls' Brigade is an international and interdenominational, uniformed organisation for girls. Its activities are too numerous to mention here but can be grouped under the four headings of Spiritual, Physical, Educational and Service.
Week night activities include handicraft, games, music, service at home and in the community. Girls earn badges for attendance and for activities.
Our motto is "Seek, Serve and Follow Christ". Our aim is "To help girls to become followers of the Lord Jesus Christ, and through self-control, reverence and a sense of responsibility to find true enrichment of life."
There are four age-related groups :
5 - 7
8 - 10
11 - 13
14 - 18
18:00 - 19:15
18:00 - 19:30
18:00 - 20:00

We take child protection very seriously and keep our procedures and practices under regular review. All those working with children are CRB checked.
