Families and children are welcome at all our services, but are particularly welcome at the family service at St. Bartholomew's on the first Sunday of each month, which begins at 9:30 and lasts for no more than 45 minutes. This service does not include communion, but does have lots of singing.
We are making great efforts to welcome children. Our Messy Church initiative is making great progress and proving to be very popular.
We have strong links and are regular visitors to our church school, St. Bede's and the brownies, guides and rangers.
As well as the regular services look out for our seasonal services during the year which are particularly suited to families; on Palm Sunday each year Annie the donkey is a regular visitor, Good friday with hot cross buns, Christingle and the Nativity in December.
