During Sunday Services (10.30 -11.45)

Parents are free to stay with their children or go back into the service – mostly, the time in crèche is free play for the children, sometimes with a story and simple craft activity.
Fireflies: 5-7 years
The session usually involves a game, a Bible story and a chance to talk about what the story means, a drink and a biscuit and a craft activity.
Lanterns: 8-11 years
The session usually involves a game, a Bible story and a chance to discuss the story together, a drink and biscuit and a range of activities.
Ignite: 12+ years
This group of young people meets on Sunday mornings at St Matthew’s. It is a place for young people to explore their Christian faith that has an emphasis on what it is like to live out that faith during the week.
