CHILDREN YOUTH AND FAMILIES
St Peters has a very dedicated team of volunteers who support and run activities for children and families alongside the Youth and Family Worker, Debs Williams.
Current activities include a Sunday Club which meets in the church during the 10am service, various uniformed organisations such as Rainbows and Brownies, and a thriving toddlers' service.
The main aim of all activities and services for children and families is to ensure that people feel comfortable in church, have fun and are able to explore Christianity in their own way, be that through play, prayer, dramas, art, music or games.
We are always open to fresh ideas for supporting and engaging the local community so please contact us with your thoughts!
St Peter's take working with children and families very seriously and take care to be up to date with all safeguarding procedures.
For further information please contact Debs Williams. Debs is a qualified Primary School Teacher and Community Artist. She has worked as a Youth Worker in both churches and Local Authority Youth Centres in South Gloucestershire, for the past 10 years. Debs has extensive experience of supporting children with additional needs and autism in particular.

Helping children and young people engage in the Christian faith in a way that is age appropriate.
The Sunday Club is run every Sunday from 10-11am when the children then join the rest of the congregation in church to show off what they have been working on!
The Sunday Club welcomes children of all ages but if you intend to leave your child they must be at least 4 years old and be able to use the toilet.
Each week in Sunday Club we help to engage children and young people in the Christian faith in a way that seeks to foster their understanding of what it means to be a Christian. They will learn Bible stories and Christian ethics, and most importantly do so in a fun, supportive and nurturing environment.
In addition to the regular Sunday Club meetings, children are also invited to take part in the Uniformed Organisations' Church Parades and at other child-specific services throughout the year, such as Harvest and Mothering Sunday. Children are encouraged to take an active part in the service, for example doing readings or collections.
The Sunday Club put on a Nativity Play each Christmas.
The leader in charge of the Sunday Club is Debs Williams. Debs is a qualified Primary School Teacher and Community Artist. She has extensive experience of supporting children with additional needs and has experience of following family plans and safeguarding procedures.
