Serving God, Serving our Community

Youth and Children’s Ministry

Children are an important part of the life of St Mary’s Church…

Each week church members lead an “Open the Book” morning assembly in Frittenden school.  In these assemblies we act out a bible story followed by a moment of reflection, a prayer and a song.

On the second Sunday each month we have a family-oriented service, All Age Worship,  which starts at 09.30 am.  On all other Sundays we have Sunday club during church services for children of primary school age.  There is also an attractive toddlers’ corner at the back of church, equipped with suitable toys and books.

MESSY CHURCH takes place once a month on the 3rd Sunday of the month from 3.30 to 5.30pm.  This is another way of being church, designed to cater for all the family.  It is run jointly with Trinity church Sissinghurst and meets in the Parish and John Martin rooms, next to the church, at Sissinghurst.  Each month we explore a different theme with crafts, games, activities, songs, stories and food in a relaxed atmosphere.

Details of all these activities can be found in the Church Diary section of this website as well as in the Parish Magazine and on the weekly notice sheets in church.
