Children & Young People

Our vision for our children’s ministry at St Nicholas’ is that all our groups, activities and services should be fun and friendly places where we can discover more about God and what it means to follow Him.

We do this in many different ways and you can find out more about everything that happens for children, young people and families below.

Sunday services

Most of our families with children attend our 10am service at which we provide activities and facilities for babies and children.

Monthly Family Worship

On the first Sunday of each month we have a special Family service. We include a high degree of participation and aim to keep this to 45 minutes. Baptisms and Thanksgivings usually take place during these services.

Messy Church

Messy Church is a church for families at a time when it is a bit easier for them to come.

We meet twice a term and start with a variety of craft activities all based on a theme or bible story. It often gets a bit messy! We then have messy worship, where we sing songs, join in a story and pray.

Finally we all share a meal together.

When? Twice a term on Saturday from 4-6pm

Where? Gladstone Village Hall, Burton or in Church
