St Mary's Radcliffe on Trent

Sharing God's Love

Children and Young People at St Mary's

Church Services

Toddlers and babies are very welcome in services. (Yes, we do realise that young children do not always stay in one place or keep totally quiet!!)

However, if you would feel more at ease, a special area is available in the tower room at the back of the church. Your child is welcome to play here during part or all of the service and you can still listen to the service via a speaker. It is also a good place to feed your baby if you would like some privacy.
Alternatively, if you would prefer somewhere more comfortable to sit,  there are now sofas in the carpeted area at the back of church.

The One Way Club (Sunday School) has a simple aim:
To help children grow in faith.

As part of this we try to help them understand the bible, have some fun, make some friends and learn about Jesus. It can be noisy at times, but it’s joyful.

We meet on Sunday mornings at 10.30am on the first and second and fourth week of the month during term time. We join with everybody in church for the start of the 10.30am service then go to St Mary's Hall for our own activities until about 11.30am.
