Childrens Liturgy

Each Sunday, we gather together to celebrate in Word and Sacrament the mystery of our Lord's death and resurrection. The celebration of the Mass includes everyone, both young and old. However, sometimes children are not able to understand or fully participate in the liturgy. For this reason, we hold a Children's Liturgy on alternate weeks during the 11.00 am Sunday Mass.

Pease see our Event Diary and ‘Information Leaflet for Parents’ for more details.

After the opening greeting at the 11am Sunday Mass during term time, young children are invited to form a procession for the Children’s Liturgy. Parents may accompany those children who cannot attend without them.

The teacher leads a simple Liturgy of the Word for children which uses simple versions of the readings which are used at the Mass. The sessions will include prayers, a simplified gospel followed by discussion and an activity. We end with the Creed before returning to the main body of the Church to celebrate the Eucharist.

Children's Liturgy is open to all children over 4 years old and is held in the Church Hall.

Each liturgy session is run by 2 or more leaders (all CRB checked).

If you would like your child to attend Children's Liturgy, simply turn up on the day and complete a simple form to register. Once registered, your child can come to the Childrens Liturgy whenever he/ she is able.
