Children at St Alfege
Families, children and young people are an integral part of life and worship at St Alfege Church. We aim to encourage and nurture children’s spirituality through teaching and activity: as well as through familiarity with and inclusion in our weekly Eucharist.
On the first Sunday of the month, there is a Family Eucharist in the church hall for children and their families and on the last Sunday of each month the whole congregation shares a Communion service together in the church. On the intervening Sundays, our children gather with their families for collective worship (without the Eucharist) in the church hall. The whole church shares Communion together on the last Sunday of each month. Otherwise, our children gather with their families for collective worship in the church hall.
Our monthly children’s services follow this pattern:
First Sunday of the month
10am Family Eucharist in the church hall
Last Sunday of the month
10am Eucharist with children and families in the church
All other Sundays
10am Collective worship in church hall
Second Thursday of the month
4pm Family Service led by the children of St Alfege Primary School in the church
