We believe that everyone, from the very youngest upwards, is a unique and valuable member of God's family. At. St. Mary's we have fun together, learning and growing in God's love, and exploring what it means to have faith in Jesus .
"Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it."

We think of church as family, and on Sundays and at our toddler groups we enjoy looking out for each other as we find our way through the ups and downs of parenting.
Our children and families pastor Bekah can provide a listening ear and signpost carers to additional help if needed.
At. St. Mary's Primary School we run the Nurture Room; a space in school for children to talk through their emotions and express themselves through creative projects.
We also run a Parent “Drop in” on a Monday morning, where parents and carers can come, chat and be listened to over a coffee.
If there's one thing our children's worker loves (almost as much as she loves supporting our children and families) it's music!
Bekah is a great musician and brings her musical talents to our children's groups, as well as having helped the children to write their own songs.
Whether it's our fabulous Christingle Nativity Trail, or our brilliant Zoom Easter party, we like to celebrate fun times and enjoy tasty treats.
During school holidays we hold our fun and laid back "Popcorn Sunday" sessions, with great DVDs and plenty of snackage.
