Events and activities for children and youth

At Sutton Elms Church we run a wide range of children’s and youth events through the week as well as bigger events and holiday clubs throughout the year. With activities for all ages and abilities, you’re sure to find something for you.


Thursday:-   Angels and Monsters
Our mid-week toddler group has it all! A large open space with more toys than even the most energetic child can play with in one morning, singing and story times, painting, gluing and sticking (and sometimes even all three at the same time) as well as snacks and drinks too. Best of all, there are comfortable seats with Tea and Coffee available for the parents and carers. Come to socialise, meet new mums and dads, or even come to network your little ones in the toddler community. Whatever your reason, please feel free to come and visit us, termtime between 9:30-11:30am. More info on NetMums.

Sundays:-   Smash, Pulse and Crèche and Family Services

Smash and Pulse are our weekly activities for children who attend church on a Sunday. Smash is for primary school age and Pulse for secondary. These groups offer a great, relaxing and informally fun way to engage with what the Bible teaches and learn what this means for our lives today. As well we have discussions on world issues, church issues and we pray for each other and for our friends at home or at school.

Normally second Sunday of the month is Family Service (check church calendar for alternative dates). A lively and fun time with plenty to keep children interested, starting and 10.15 with coffee and cake.

There are also special events for children and families at for example Christmas, Easter and Summer. Again, check the calendar for details.


“All these groups also serve to give a voice to children and young people in our church, ensuring that they are heard and valued parts of our church family.  Through regular family/children’s/youth services the young people themselves take ownership of their faith and form a visible part of our worship, praise and fellowship.”
