Young Church

St Mary’s has a lively programme of Sunday morning events which take place between the Psalm and the Peace during the 1030 am Sung Eucharist.  This includes Godly Play, learning about the seasons of the Church Year, singing games with the choir and contact with the clergy.

Godly Play is an approach to Christian nurture and education that promotes knowledge, skills, empathy and spiritual growth; develops the needs of the whole child; provides a multi-sensory approach to learning; develops language and communication skills;  develops thinking skills; and provides depth and reflection in every session. Godly Play can help people of all ages see and do things differently.

 Please contact the leaders via the Cathedral Office for more information.

BabySpace! Babies and infants are very welcome at St Mary’s. There is also a quiet space for parents to be with their children called BabySpace! This is in the small meeting room. It may be especially welcome during the sermon and intercessions. BabySpace! is equipped with live audio feed so the service can be heard. There are soft toys, a comfortable feeding chair and safe play space for play.

Please see this pdf handout for more details about how children are welcomed at St Mary’s.
