Our junior church is known as ‘SM@SH’ (St. Mary’s at the Scout Hut) and runs every Sunday except the first one of the month. Starting at 9:30am, SM@SH caters for children aged 2 – 10 years.
Each week sees a different combination of leaders running fun activities for participants including crafts, games, songs, stories and interactive prayer.
The SM@SH team follow a programme called Roots based on material from a children's charity called Scripture Union. The material guides people through important Christian beliefs and values in a safe and exciting environment.
Children and young people are a treasured part of the church and offer such a valuable element to St. Mary’s; they share each week with the adult congregation what they’ve discovered in SM@SH about God.
