Children and Youth at St Peter & St Paul’s

As a church, we are committed to seeing our children and young people come to Christian faith for themselves.

  • Our Sunday services each week are always intended to be all-age with activities for children available.
  • We support our Team Messy Church, which meets monthly on the fourth Sunday of the month at 4.00 p.m. and rotates around a variety of local venues in our seven parishes.
  • We also support Stepping Stones, a Friday after-school club who meet in Ryarsh.
  • Teenagers in school years 9 to 13 attend our Team Youth Group called ‘Fusion’ which meets monthly at St Martin’s, Ryarsh on a Friday evening. They are also encouraged to join in on Sundays with the adults and take part in the life of the church in various ways.


It is important that our children and young people are safe when in the care of adults running our activities. We are committed to making sure we follow best practice in safeguarding.
