Children and Youth
The church encourages spiritual awareness among the young with two groups: JAM (Jesus And Me) and Spectrum. These meet during the principal Sunday morning services (except when this takes the form of informal worship) during term times. There is also a youth group - STYG, that meets monthly.
JAM is the name of the St Nicholas Sunday School. We meet in the Community Hall on Sundays during the morning Service. Sessions start at 10.30 and we usually open with a short time of worship followed by a story, and finish off with a period of craft work. We take children from age 3 to 15 years. Worshiping together at the start of our session, and then splitting into smaller groups dependant on age and ability to continue their faith development.There is a theme for each week and a programme is published at the start of each term.
Our mission statement is ‘to show young people that church and Christians can be fun, whilst equipping them to serve God at home, in our church, at school and in society at large’.
JAM is lead by Geoff Rendall and Tricia Squires who are supported by a number of helpers. All leaders and helpers are enhanced CRB checked and a Safeguarding policy is in place (for further details of the Safeguarding policy contact Nicki Richards or Emma Cann, Parish Safeguarding Officers.)
For further information please contact Geoff Rendall 07856604522, Tricia Squires or any member of the Clergy.
STYG is a group for young people from across the Group Ministry in Year 6 and above. It meets monthly on the second Saturday of the month and has a wide and varied programme of activities such as bowling, orienteering, quizzes and games.
