Children & Families
Due to coronavirus we have had to adapt a lot of our children’s activities, we will continue to update this page with what is currently running.
At St Saviour’s we welcome and value families and children. We believe that the early years can be very important in helping children to develop a life-long relationship with God. We aim to teach the Bible to the children and create a safe environment for them to explore and reflect upon it. We encourage questioning and wondering, and pray that the children form a firm foundation of faith during these years. We have a dedicated youth and children’s worker, as well as a team of volunteers. The church has a commitment to safeguarding and each volunteer has a DBS check. Our groups for children are:
Toddler Group on Wednesday mornings, 9.45–11.15 a.m. during term time.
Please follow our facebook page to find out more: https://www.facebook.com/Stsaviourstoddlers
Our toddler group starts with play, a range of different toys and a craft table.
Later there is singing and a story.
We serve teas and coffees to parents and carers along with chocolate biscuits and have snack time with a drink, some fruit and a plan biscuit for children.
We celebrate Christmas, Easter and the end of the school year with a party. We welcome all children and their carers; there is no charge but donations are welcome, suggested donation is £1.50 a family.
During our 10:30am service we have toys out for the preschool children and have recently restarted offering teaching and activities for the primary school age children. We all meet together for worship before they go out to their group and return to the service before enjoying drinks and biscuits together with the whole church family after the service.
We are happy to be able to work with our three parish schools, whether it be making toast and chatting in the Sanctuary at St Mark’s School, delivering assemblies or Open the Book at St Saviours Church School or working with Foundation governors and chaplaincy team to support the schools in other ways.

Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
