At St. Paul’s we love children and their families. We are committed to helping children to become and stay God-connected; to resourcing their whole families, so that their lives and homes are shaped by Jesus; to encouraging families to influence the world with the love of Jesus.
Faith @ Home
Faith@Home is a weekly family devotional – it can be done anytime. Over breakfast on Sundays or Monday nights or whenever works best for you and your family. It’s not instead of church (we so miss gathering together) but it is a way to make sure as a family you have a connection point in the week, to pray together, to look at the Bible together. Faith@Home is a time to get connected as a family: connected to God and to each other.
Our St Paul’s kids, aged 7-11yrs, have their very own weekly online small group. This is led by our brilliant kids team with lots of fun, chat, games, prayer, Bible and laughter. If you’d like to get involved, email Kathryn.firstname.lastname@example.org
We’re launching our fortnightly Family Worship Gathering in October. It’s a welcoming environment where those with children can worship together, meet with God and have fun. Family Worship will be compliant with COVID-19 guidelines so children will need to stay with their households throughout, adults will need to wear face coverings and social distancing will need to be practiced by all. To help with this, each household will have their own ‘island’. You’ll need to pre-book your family ‘island’. Click here for booking
Our popular Tots group still can’t meet together at the moment. But fear not - we’ve got some exciting things planned for families with babies and pre-schoolers this term. There’s a woodland teddy bear hunt planned for October plus a virtual teddy bear’s picnic. In November we’re launching a new Series of weekly “Tots at Home” episodes. Keep up to date by following our Tots Facebook page.

There are so many great online resources that are free to access, aimed at helping families navigate this season. This month, we recommend:
