St Johns East Malvern

Kids @ Church

Many of us have wonderful childhood memories of church – sharing celebrations with parents, grandparents, siblings and friends – even Youth Group doesn’t seem so bad from a distance!

Creating a similarly enjoyable environment for children and families is a priority at Saint John’s. We offer a wide variety of activities for youth and young children, including:

Kids @ Church Services

A special Kids @ Church service for young children and families is held at 11.00am on the first Sunday of each month, except January.  The language of the service is simplified to help small children understand the intent of the prayers and to encourage their involvement. The music is also is easily remembered, so that young ones can join in without reading, and we share a Godly Play story instead of more formal teaching. The whole service is concluded within 40-45 minutes and is held in the Chapel.

Eagle Club

Eagle Club aims to prepare children to join in the life and worship of the congregation as they develop a deeper understanding of the stories, symbols, and rites of the Church. Using Godly Play storytelling to encourage wondering questions and to connect with personal experience, children are invited to explore the faith and traditions of the Christian community. Eagle Club meets in the Bell Tower every 3rd Sunday morning at 9.30am during term time.
