Children and Young People

We welcome all ages to our worship at St. Dunstan's and look forward to seeing you and your children any Sunday at 10:30am.

FOR THE UNDER 3's there are play bags available to borrow through the service which contain appropriate books and toys. If your child was to become restless you are free to walk about at the back of the Church, or to take your child out of the Church for a while if you feel more comfortable.

JUNIOR CHURCH, for the 3-10+ years, meets every Sunday at 10:30am in the Church (except some Family Service days and some School holidays). The children go out of the Church with their leaders after the first hymn and return in time to receive a blessing during the sharing of the bread and wine. They go to the Church Centre, which is the building adjacent to the Church, although under 5's will need to be accompanied by an adult.

While in their age groups they hear stories, sing, make posters and work with craft materials and have their own prayer time based on the same bible reading and themes as those in Church. Children who would rather stay in Church with their parents are, of course, welcome to do so.

YOUNG PEOPLE'S FELLOWSHIP (YPF) is for those at senior school (11+ years) or who are already confirmed by the Bishop. YPF meets every three weeks and a diary is issued to everyone who comes. They also get involved in workshops in the half term holidays, help at Church fundraising events and take a lead in some of the worship on Sunday mornings.

YPF meet in the Church Centre from 10:15am and return to Church with the Junior Church in time to receive a blessing or the bread and wine. There are young people up to the age of 17+ and an average of 15 young people meet regularly. They discuss worship and topics related to the world, its people and the environment. They also spend time getting to know each other and building up friendship.

OTHER REGULAR ACTIVITIES for children take place throughout the year. During the first week of the school Summer holiday there are children’s activities. Occasional ‘workshops’ are arranged at times such as Holy Week and Easter.


There is a regular Junior Newsletter following the theme of the day to help children (from 3-10 years) understand more about what is going on. There is a book case with books for older children who decide not to go out with Junior Church.
