Annual Report - Junior Church

<< Back - to List of Reports || 1st Caterham Scouts - Next >>

Junior church is currently led each Sunday, alternately by Maria Duckett and Sarah Benham.

In January 2017 Sarah Benham very kindly volunteered to help lead Junior Church. Thank you to Sarah for her support and assistance in the running of St Marys Junior Church.

We have a group of dedicated helpers, who assist on a rota basis, swapping and covering each other at short notice when necessary. Thank you to them for their continued support.

Helping each week, we also have students working towards their Duke of Edinburgh award.

Junior church runs every Sunday except the first of the month, during term time only, in order to allow children to become accustomed to taking part in full Sunday Eucharistic services and Family services.

Leaders arrive to set up from 8.30 each Sunday morning. Helpers try to arrive by 9.15 in order to discuss the mornings’ activities and assist with any further setting up. Children arrive from 9.20, ready to begin at 9.30. We then join the congregation back in church at approximately 10.10 in time for communion.

Children may attend Junior Church from age 4 yrs/Reception until school yr 5.

Attendance numbers vary from week to week; from 10 to 20.
