Babies, children and young people play a vital part in our life together as a church and we look forward to welcoming you and your family. Our weekly activities for children include:
Please feel free to drop in and explore the church building with your children while it’s open during the day. There’s a toilet with nappy-changing facilities, and space at the back of church with toys and books for children.
Contact Eona, Children and Families Minister, with any questions about activities for children at St Andrew’s.
St Andrew’s for Kids (StA4K), our group for children (aged roughly 3-12) meets most Sundays during the 10 am service. We begin the service in church, then go through to the North Room for Godly Play, which includes stories from the Bible and the Christian tradition, reflection, worship and prayer. Children are offered a variety of activities to explore and express their own responses to God.
On the 4th Sunday of the month StA4K meets in the Cotton Hall, next door to the church, starting at 9.50 am. Parents and carers may attend Morning Prayer in church at 10 am and our leaders bring the children back to the North Room for coffee and juice afterwards.
On the 2nd Sunday of the month at 10 am we have All-Age Worship when everyone stays together in church. Children and young people often do readings, play music or say prayers during this service.
Girton Choir Church
Girton Choir Church is for children aged 7-11 who want to learn to sing music from the church choral tradition, hymns and more contemporary pieces too. We meet on Tuesday afternoons in school term-time, rehearsing from 3.45-4.30pm, but with snacks available in the North Room from 3.30pm.
The group sing once a term at a short, informal service in church, to which friends and families are invited, at the Girton Feast in July and other village events. Children from at least three different local primary schools come along, and new members are always welcome.
St Andrew’s Church runs Bobtails, a playgroup for babies and toddlers with their parents, grandparents and carers. We meet on Tuesday mornings 10-11:30am during school term-time at the Cotton Hall, next door to the church. All are welcome to drop in for free play, healthy snacks, crafts, singing and a Bible story.
Once a month we also support Messy Church with our friends at Girton Baptist Church.
