Childrens and Youth Work


Young People's work in South Cerney

We welcome all children and young people of any age to our services and groups at All Hallows and believe that they are an important part of our church family.

Messy Church

Messy ChurchFamilies with children of all ages are invited to join us on the 1st Sunday of the month to learn about God in a fun and creative way.

We take a particular theme or Bible story and make crafts, sing, pray and enjoy light refreshments and a chat at the end.

It doesn't matter if you have been to church before or not, everyone is welcome at Messy Church.

It is Church with a difference.

All children must be accompanied by an adult.

Under 5's

Under 5's takes place on the 1st, 3rd and 5th Thursday each month at 2pm. It is always a very lively and happy time with action songs, bells and candles; sometimes it can also be very noisy and messy if we get the paints out! There is time afterwards for refreshments and a chat.

At Easter, Harvest and Christmas we welcome South Cerney Pre-School Playgroup to special services in church. A Teddy Bears Picnic is held in the vicarage garden in August.
