Children & Youth

At St Joseph’s we love to see children diving in to the Bible and having a stack of fun at the same time!

We love seeing children and youth at any our regular Sunday services, but we run children’s & youth groups for those aged between 0 – and school year 8 at our 10.30am service. Our youth group for those in school years 9-13 meets after the 6.30pm service in term-time. Whether it is during a Sunday service, one of our weekly youth groups, the children will always get to hear from the Bible and play lots of games and activities, whilst being cared for by our fabulous and dedicated teams of trained and DBS checked leaders.
