There's loads happening for families on Sundays at St James' Church!


All Age Services1st Sunday of the Month, 10.45am
On the first Sunday of the month we all join together for worship in the Church at 10.45am.  Look out for Billy the Puppet!

Tea Time 2nd and 3rd Sunday of the Month, 4.30pm
Tea Time services are particularly geared for families with children.  Tea Time involves around 30 minutes of lively, action-packed worship with a Bible story and talk, followed by tea together.  Every year we have our famous Palm Sunday Tea Time service with real donkeys!


Breakfast Church – 4th Sunday of the Month, 8.45am

On the fourth Sunday of the month, it’s our Breakfast Service in the hall.  We start at 8.45am with a hearty family breakfast, including bacon rolls (meat or vegetarian), fruit, cereal, toast and rolls.  This moves into a time of worship including a Bible story, songs, talk and a craft.

Seekers – Sunday Mornings during the 10.45 service (except for all age services and Summer holidays)

Seekers takes place in the Lansdown Room from 10.45am.  The children at Seekers explore Bible stories through games, activities, discussion and crafts - with lots of fun along the way as they discover Jesus's love for each of them.

Family area:  There is also a carpeted area in the Church with toys, books and a simple activity related to the theme of the service for babies and younger toddlers to enjoy, whilst supervised by a parent or carer.

Our Church building is an amazing place for small children to explore - and it's absolutely fine for them to have a wander about during the service!

We also have baby changing facilities and always seek to cater for the needs of children with special needs including having sensory bags, visual timetable and ear defenders available.
