Junior Church

Junior Church is the group that meets term time excluding the first Sunday of the month, (when there is a all age service at St Nicholas). Currently the group caters for toddlers (with parents) and children of school age up to and including Year 6. The group meets in the Lavant Room at St Mary’s Church on 2nd, 4th & 5th Sundays. When the main morning service is at St. Nicholas the group meets in the kitchen area. Preparation and teaching at these sessions which link to the Common Worship theme on each Sunday is undertaken by a dedicated, enthusiastic and talented adult team. Following their activities the children re-join the congregation at the communion point of the service receiving a blessing at the altar as part of the whole family of the church.


Within the Lavant churches we take the issue of Safeguarding Children, Young People and Vulnerable Adults extremely seriously and we work within the Diocesan Framework on the necessary Disclosure and Barring Procedures.  If you would be interested to learn further of those procedures and Diocesan Policies please visit the Diocesan website:
