Youth work

“Youth work” is a cover-all description of all our church does to serve young people in our area.

There is a great deal more going on than is listed here (Holiday club, camps, other smaller midweek groups…). But the groups mentioned here are a useful ‘front door’ into all the others.



On Sundays we have a créche for babies 2 and under, where mothers are able to look after children in a separate room, while being part of the morning meeting via the sound system.

Children from 2-5 are taught the Bible in the Vicarage.

Children who are 6-14 are taught together in our church hall before the 11-14’s go off to their own group.

We want lively Bible teaching using the country’s best resources to back up the best place of Christian instruction – which is actually in a child’s home!


Mondays: Sound

Sound is a youth club for older teenagers (14-18 yrs) held at St George’s Church in Dagenham (on the other side of the Heathway). There are all sorts of activities (football, pool, table tennis, wii, games and cooking just to name a few!) and a short talk and discussion around a Bible passage.

Please contact Joel for more information.

Fridays: Fridays

This is a club for Primary School children (5-11) that runs from 6 to 7:30 pm at the Exeter Road Hall.

It includes games, Bible teaching and very caring encouragement from a committed team led by Kathy Playle. Email her from the ‘Who’s who‘ part of our website.
