Children and Families
We seek to encourage and enable children and young people to develop their own Christian faith. It is our desire to support parents and families as they learn about God, so that they can build their own confidence to express the gift God has given to each one of them, and to be better equipped to address the challenges that life brings.
children are always welcome and we seek to make this
an attractive place to come where they can have fun, in addition to learning
about God. We pray children, students and young families will experience a sense of love and community
here, as we grow more and more in our Christian discipleship.
We also have Messy Church meetings for parents/guardians and little ones in the Village Hall. Please click on the link to read more.
We are blessed to have two wonderful school communities within
walking distance of the Parish Church.
St. Michael’s C
of E (A) Infant School (for the school
website click here) are very involved
through monthly assemblies and special
services in church, and regular assemblies in the school are led by Sandra, our parish priest.
In addition there are
three Workshops held at the school each year, on Mothering Sunday, Harvest
Festival and Christingle. These are great fun with many craft and other
activities, as well as wonderful refreshments, before everyone walks across to
the church for a special Family Service at 11am.
Box Hill is an independent co-educational boarding and day school (for the school website click here) which joins us for services in church. They also use
the church for various concerts and recitals.
The monthly Family Services are a helpful way to grow in faith as the use of multi-media enhances the gospel
presentations. With an informal yet structured approach, the Family Service is
enjoyed by all ages, and is followed with refreshments and the opportunity to
catch up with others.
