Welcome to Kids and Families at St A’s! We love having fun with God’s amazing kids and watching them grow through prayer, worship and discipleship.

This month we are feeling festive with Christmas parties, school Christingle services, learning about the different people in our nativity readings, a Christmas Film and the Donkey Services on Christmas Eve!

Our heart is for children and grown ups to encounter a God who loves them and to enable families to flourish in their faith. We have an amazing team who create fun and vibrant spaces where children can form strong bonds with friends, the team and feel loved, accepted and believed

Sunday Kid’s Groups

If it’s not an All Age Sunday our Kids can be found over in the Community Centre having a great time engaging with Jesus in their Groups. Ours are run by a team of fantastic enthusiastic volunteers and our Children and Families’ Pastor, Carrie.

Our Sparklers group meet in Little Hillersdon in the centre. This group is a special dedicated space for little ones to be nurtured and explore the word of God through craft, play and storytelling.

Our Livewires group is a lively fun space to explore life as a follower of Jesus. We believe there is no Junior Holy Spirit. Expect games, teamwork, prayer, craft and more!

Angele

Angele is a special member of our Kid’s work; we sponsor her through Compassion UK. We initially sponsored Angele through KidZone where we would regularly pray for and exchange letters with her. We got very excited when she sent us a new letter!

Now we are introducing Angele to all our children’s groups and are hoping to get our Livewires children to write to her soon.

As a church we started sponsoring Angele in 2015 when she was just 5 years old, she is now 11 years old! She lives in Burkina Faso with her Grandmother. 

Her favourite subjects are Literature and History and she enjoys playing group games.

When Angele writes to us she writes in French and then someone translates it for us. In her last letter to us, Angele wrote ‘It’s fine in school thanks to your prayers! Keep on praying for me. I pray for God to bless your Church in all plan. Thank you for your priceless support to me. I am so glad to be your friend.’
