Young People

What does the Church offer the Young People of Staplehurst

At all Saints Staplehurst we strive to warmly welcome children and young people of all ages.

We offer a range of church services and groups to make children and young people comfortable in a church environment and help to nurture them in their faith journey. We also hope that this will make it easier for the parents themselves to benefit from their time with us.

In church we have a children’s area with a range of toys and activities to interest those who are too young to cope with the service or whose attention span has come to an end. There are also activity bags which can be taken into the pews.

At the rear of the church is a WC with baby changing facilities.

After most services refreshments are served, with the option of squash and biscuits for the children.

The groups that are run are as follows, with contact details.
