Children’s Liturgy of The Word
Forming the faith of our children is important so we believe in providing classes for our youngest learners. Sunday Children’s Liturgy is offered during term time for children aged 4-12 during Sunday’s 9:00AM Mass.
We have two groups, infants (4-8 years), who meet in the Bulbeck Room, and juniors (9-12 years), who meet in the Small Chapel*. The Gospel of the Mass is proclaimed and broken open for them through discussions, games, role play and creating crafts. The children are invited to share their own thoughts and ideas in order to grow in their relationship with God. A child from the junior group will explain to the congregation what the two groups have been talking and learning about.
We welcome newcomers to our Sunday Children’s Liturgy groups throughout the year. When invited by the Priest, please bring your child to the front of the Church with the others. We look forward to meeting you and your little ones.
*We recommend children over 12 should stay in the Mass in preparation for the Sacrament of Confirmation. Younger siblings of children in the infants group are welcome but must be supervised by a parent. Both groups are run by DBS checked adults in accord with our safeguarding policy.
