For Young People
Teens
Clip Art, Young Teens
Our provision for Teenagers is currently being reviewed. We began in the second half of 2015 by making visits to other churches in different styles from ours to see what they do and what they're like.

Our Teens are currently visiting St Andrews Church, Churchdown (Near Cheltenham) on the first Sunday of each month to join in their large and vibrant youth Service called 'Fuel' and have begun an informal Service in a similar (but so far less extensive) style on the third Sunday of each month in our own church in Dymock and have decided to call it 'Ignite'. Everyone is most welcome to come but expect the style to be very different from our regular, more traditional Services.

More details to follow as the idea develops! (Return to top)
Toddlers

We have a 'Children's Corner' in the North Transept area at the front of the church. It comprises a set of shelves to house boxes of toys and craft materials and a low table and chairs suitable for young children, together with a bench for parents to sit on whilst they supervise. (Gifts of more toys welcome). (Return to top)

The idea is to provide an area where young children can go during each of our Services so they get to experience our worship as they grow up and parents can take part without worrying about what to do with their children for whom the adult Services are less engaging. All are welcome - the congregation support this idea and are happy to accept a degree of noise and activity whilst they get on with the Service, so please feel free to join us and make full use of the facility.
