Children under 3 may sit and play in this area accompanied by an adult.

Sunday School
Sunday School is held every first and third sunday of the month whilst Holy Communion takes place. Here at St Johns we have families with children who worship regularly and so we have a growing Sunday School! We have a mixed age group of children - and all are welcome to join us. At sunday school we do a variety of activities - from crafts to songs and games! At special times of year we take part in plays - acting in front of the whole church - and even take part in readings and prayers during All Age Services. At All Age Services (family services) we have our own flag which is paraded with the uniformed organisations. We also have Sunday School t-shirts to wear if we want! We would be delighted to see new children of any age who would like to join. For more details please contact us.
Every first and third Sunday at 11:00 AM for 1 hour
