Church of England Diocese of Southwell & Nottingham Retford Saint Saviour

Children and Young People

At St Saviour’s we love to welcome all ages especially children and families.

Our 10.30am service is great for children and families. We have a creche area at the back of church and in the early part of the service we have a short all age message and a children’s song.

After this the service leader will explain that it’s time for the children to go to their group (for ages 0-11s) in the Community Centre. We ask that adults take their children to the group, they can then stay for a minute (or the whole session if you have a baby or younger children) while their children settle in or just head straight back to church.

At the end of the service the children come back into church and normally show everyone what they’ve been doing in their group.

On the first Sunday of each month we have an all age service. For this service the children stay in church and we all worship together. It’s usually a slightly shorter more interactive service around 45-50 minutes in length.
