Babies, toddlers, children and youth
All ages are welcome at St Andrew's and we have lots of activities for children of all ages, on Sundays and weekdays too.
All our staff and volunteers have a current DBS certificate and follow the Parish Safeguarding Policy in line with the requirements of the Diocese of Guildford in the Church of England.
There is a staffed crèche for ages 0-3 during the 9.45am service with a variety of activities.
We currently have three SKIDS (Sunday School) groups according to school years, as well as Fusion for school years 6-9.
We have Parent and Toddler groups, a Mums' Bible Study (with creche), Bump to Birthday for new mums and our Coffee Shop where everyone can meet and enjoy a drink and snack.
Youth at weekends
FRIDAY FUSION is our group for school years 6-9 on Friday evenings. Years 10-13 meet and chill out on Sunday evenings in FUSE. These are held in our A2 Youth and Community Centre, right by the main church building.
The Vicar and PCC of St Andrew’s Church take the safety of everyone within the church very seriously. In particular, the church expects anyone who becomes aware of a safeguarding risk or of actual abuse to immediately raise this with the Vicar, Kate Wyles, or with the Parish Safeguarding Officer, Shani Orchard.
All workers and volunteers with responsibility for work with babies, toddlers children, youth or vulnerable adults are required to have a current DBS certificate and to follow the Parish Safeguarding Policy in line with the requirements of the Diocese of Guildford in the Church of England. If you have any concerns please contact Shani or Kate.
