Children’s at St. John’s

We are committed to supporting parents and carers in bringing up their children to know God as well as providing safe and welcoming places for all children & families to hear about Jesus for the first time.

Whether you are a regular church goer or just interested to find out more, you are very welcome to try our groups. Just turn up or contact children@stjohnsblackheath.org.uk if you would like to discuss joining us on a Sunday morning.

Sunday Morning Children’s Groups

Our Sunday morning children’s groups take place during the 9:15 and 11:15 services and are a place for 2-11 year olds to to learn from Bible, build friendships and have fun. We also have a creche room available for younger children.

Once a month we have an all age service where everyone stays together for the duration of the service. We plan these services to be fun and engaging for everyone – no matter your age.
