Children and Young People

We believe that by providing love, nurture and encouragement to both families and their children that we will Grow God's Family. Across our churches we hold a range of services and groups which welcome you at any point in your journey to faith. All the news about special events and changes to timetables can be found in our twice monthly notice sheet.

St Peter & St Paul Church Botley Messy Church  is for primary aged children. These events are a great way for children, families and adults to take part in church is a fun, creative and open way. There is also a focus on inter-generational relationships, craft, story and song. Messy Church takes place once a month on a Saturday during term time 4-6pm. See our Messy Church pages for more information and resources.

St Peter & St Paul BotleyAll-Age Eucharist  is a more relaxed service for children, young people and families to join the usual sunday service at 9.30 am. Sometimes families can feel worried about bringing active and busy children to a regular service so once a month we hold a special one where you can be assured that eveyone is welcome.

St Frideswide West Oxford Mid-week Children's Service is for pre-schoolers and is a gentle Interactive bible story, songs, rhymes, and prayer time followed by refreshments and snacks. This takes place once a week on a Wednesday at 11am during term time. 

St Frideswide West Oxford Sunday Service is our regular service which warmly welcomes families with young children. We worship all together in all our services at St Frideswide's, with activities for children during the sermon, and some distracting toys for the very little ones provided. Families are also very welcome to join and sing in the choir together. Do get in touch with us to find out more.
