Urban Saints Groups on Sunday Mornings
St Margaret's church is a family friendly church. Children and made to feel very welcome as part of our church family. Each week their experience of church is considered by the team. We have Sunday morning activities for children and young people which are organised under the title of Urban Saints.
Children and young people are usually included in the main church service for the first 20 minutes after which they move to the adjoining Parish Centre, splitting into three age appropriate groups: 3 - 5 yrs, 6 - 10 yrs and 11 - 16 yrs.
On the first Sunday of each month we have an all-age celebration service in church at which the whole church family worship together and in which the children can often contribute.
On the second Sunday of each month children and young people begin in church and leave to have a short time in their own groups before rejoining the main service in time to share in communion.
On the fourth Sunday all the young people meet together in the Parish Centre for a fun and interactive time together. This builds relationships across the age groups and reminds each young person they are part of the whole.
- Children and young people are an important part of our Church today.
- They have much to give as well as to receive.
- We will listen to them.
- As we nurture them in worship, learning, and in community life, we will respect the wishes and feelings of children and young people.
