Young Church

These groups are all on hold during the current crisis

We welcome children and young people to all our Sunday services: there is a particular emphasis on including them at our All-Age Worship and Family Mornings (see the ‘services’ page of this site for details.

In addition we currently have these opportunities to meet outside services –


Meets every Friday from 3.30-5.00 Year six and 4.00- 5.30pm Year 7 and above, in Church Cottage (in the churchyard) for any children within the whole benefice.

We usually play a variety of games; our favourites being ‘Spillikins’, ‘Jenga’ and our giant version of ‘Snakes and Ladders’.  Or people just chat, or invent their own ways of enjoying the time. Then we stop for ‘Holy Time’ where we learn something from the Bible.

During the course of the session we get through quite a lot of chocolate biscuits and drinks as well!!

As special events, we’ve watched DVDs and had a pizza night.  We have also had trips to the cinema and theatre and gone ten-pin bowling.

Do come along and give it a try!  🙂


for years 7 and upwards. Ask any questions you want; Build each other up as disciples; Cake (eat it!); Discuss how faith connects with your life. Next session is at 4 pm on Sunday 6th January, at Sutton upon Derwent Village Hall. Young people from all our villages (and beyond) are welcome.
