Welcome to the children, youth and families page.
At the Minster, we are committed to supporting children, young people and families. We do this by running regular groups throughout the week for babies, toddlers, primary school aged children and a youth group for young people at the three secondary schools in our town.
Our prayer is that every child and young person we meet with will learn about God, meet Jesus, and find that they have an important and valued part of the community of the Minster.

‘Me and my Dad’
Breakfast events are a chance for young children to drag their Dads and Grandads to hang out with other Dads, Grandads and male carers for a morning of fun, activities and of course, coffee and bacon butties! They happen once a month on the third Saturday in the Parish Hall between 9.30-11.00. Toys, crafts and breakfast for male carers and their children (from babies up to Key Stage 2)
