We welcome everyone to join us as we praise and worship our Heavenly Father in an amazing variety of ways. These services will be led by our All Age Worship Team, made up of members of the congregation who are gifted in leading and speaking in a more relaxed manner which appeals to all ages. We try to especially engage with families with young children. The service can encompass bible readings, action songs, prayers led by the children and young people, drama, dance, and quizzes with sweets and chocolate thrown in to encourage participation! We might even get a visit from our resident GAP (God's Amazing Puppets) puppet's, TJ and Annie-Mae.

This is the service we typically hold thanksgivings and/or baptism's. We also host a Church family lunch on the first Sunday, which we welcome everyone to join us for following the service.

Whilst there are no children's groups during this service, we so have our 'Kiddie Corner' set up, which will have soft toys for anyone with a baby/young child to sit. We like to encourage you to stay for the service where possible, so wanted to provide a space for parents to sit with their children during the service. During this service, we also invite those who have a birthday that month to come to the front where we will sing 'Happy Birthday' and they will be able to pick a book from our bookstall as a birthday present from St. Mary's. If you are new to St. Mary's and have children, we would advise this as your introductory service. It's a great time for everyone to stay in Church and worship together and is heavily family-focused.
