Welcome to St Bs Kids and Families! Whether you are a long standing church family, have been away from church for a while or have never set foot in a church before, we would love to have the privilege of meeting your children! Our hope is that all St Barnabas children will come to know God’s love and purposes for them and have a place to belong in a caring community

This is where we share with parents about what’s happening for Kids in church in more detail. Please take a look (you don’t have to be on Facebook to view the group!) https://www.facebook.com/groups/stbskidsministry/


9.30am Kids Church (additional needs friendly, open to all)

An additional needs friendly (open to all), smaller Kids church session for children of 3-11yrs to play together, worship, and learn about Jesus.
If you would like to discuss your child’s particular needs please contact Rowenagliddon@stbarnabas.co.uk



11.30am Under 5s

A playful session with toys, a bible story, song (and sometimes a craft if we are feeling adventurous!) for children and babies aged 6 months - 5yrs. Parents will check in at the kids church station in the Ark before taking their children to settle in the Beacon. If children are happy, then parents can leave to go to the main service.
Please note there is no under 5s at the 9.30am service but over 3s are welcome at 9.30am Kids church.


Kids Church 11.30 Service

There will be toys and soft seating as well as a link to the main service.
