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 a full programme of kids/youth groups at our 11am service. Whether it is during a Sunday service, one of our weekly youth groups, a weekend away or a crazy holiday club (often run in conjunction with one of our sister churches), 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.
