St Peter's values the children of its congregation as full members of the church community. The Junior Church helps the children to understand how much God loves them, to teach them the Christian story through a variety of interesting and enjoyable activities, to nurture them in the Christian Faith, and to show them that they are full and valued members of the Church.
The Junior Church meets during the main Sunday morning service in term time. Each Sunday's session has a theme, based on the Sunday readings, the season of the Church's year, or a particular aspect of the Christian faith.
Children go out to Junior Church, which takes place in the Church Hall, shortly after the beginning of the service. They then rejoin the main congregation for the Peace, Eucharistic Prayer and Communion (or a blessing), after which they return to the hall for final activities and prayers. Parents join them in the hall at the end of the main service, about 11.10 am.
