Worship and Faith:
Youth and Family
Our Youth and Family groups cover a range of children, young people, families and those working and integrating with them.
Our current groups include Story Tots for the youngest children; Junior Church for younger members of families in church on Sundays, and Forest Praise – a collaboration with St George’s Fordington offering family-friendly fun, relaxed play and praise.
A friendly, caring group providing an opportunity for parents/carers and their young children to meet and play with others on a weekly basis. We are currently meeting in the Main Hall of the United Church on Thursdays (during both school term time and holidays) from 9.30am - 10.45am. During the session we have plenty of time to play and chat. We might have craft activities or sing songs. The sessions are free, including the tea and coffee. We look forward to seeing established and new regulars and welcome occasional and one-off visitors. You can see below how much the children enjoyed making crowns for the coronation!
Family-friendly fun, relaxed play and praise, with a good hearty breakfast (bacon sandwiches, veggie sausages, toast and drinks).Sessions all take place at St. George’s, Fordington (opposite Fordington Green) from 10.30 - 11.45am. Children, parents and carers are all welcome.Forest Praise usually takes place on the
last Saturday of each month .
For more details, please contact Rev. John Yarrien at United Church Dorchester or Rev. Cora Yarrien at St. George's.
Junior Church provides for children of all ages. We are a small friendly group which enables all who join us to be made very welcome. Our young people either join the service for approximately 20 minutes before going up to their Junior Church session or will stay in Church in our designated children’s area. We enjoy a wide variety of activities - singing worship songs; reading Bible verses; quizzes; games; arts & crafts. We try to help the children understand the Bible and how Jesus’ love for us can help us in our lives today.
