Time Out

This group meets weekly for pre-school children (from birth upwards) and their carers (a mix of parents, grandparents and childminders). The group aims to provide an opportunity for fellowship  and friendship and to encourage the spiritual growth of Christian family life.

Time Out meets every Tuesday from 10.00-11.30 in the Minster Parish Hall.

Sunday Club

Sunday Club, for children aged under 11 meets during the 10.30 service on Sundays.  Children and adults start the service together before children then go for their own activities; with crafts, games, storytelling and singing.   The children then join the adults again in time for communion.  Sunday Club happens every Sunday (not just term-time), apart from the first Sunday of the month when we have an All Age Service (see below)

Messy Church

We meet once a fortnight in the Parish Hall for an afternoon of craft, stories and songs to look at a part of the Bible. We use these creative activities to get to know other families at church and to worship together, before we finish the session with a meal.
Mini-Messy Church meets alternate on Tuesdays, starting on 20 September, from 15.30 – 17.00 in the Minster Parish Hall.

All Age Service

A dynamic, informal style of worship appropriate and fun for all ages and great for families. It includes lively songs led by our music group, interactive prayer, stories, craft.

It happens at the Minster on first Sunday of the month and in our associated churches: Woodmansey on the second Sunday, Tickton on the fourth Sunday.

Choir

The choir is a group of adults, children and young people, which leads the worship in many of our services at the Minster especially on Sundays and on Thursday evenings.  It is open to girls and boys aged 7-16. To find out more contact our Director of Music Robert Poyser.

The choristers have their own fun teaching sessions with Ben our Assistant Youth and Children’s Minister on the Sunday mornings they sing in the Minster.
