Children’s activities

Minims choir information can be found in our Music section. Activities for school years 7 upwards (ages 11-18) are detailed in our Youth section.

St Andrew’s has a Safeguarding Policy which is actively applied and monitored. Our Parish Safeguarding Officer is Rachel Clarke. 

Families and Junior Church

Following the first lockdown in March 2020, our families and children’s groups have met in various ways: online for Godly Play in Spring 2020; on Zoom for Zoom Church from October 2020; and more recently in St Andrew’s Hall for Cafe Church in September 2021.

As we transition back to meeting more in-person, dates for families and children’s services at 10am on Sundays will be advertised in the Chesterton Chimes (which can be found on the homepage of our website). These services will include Cafe Church once a month – a short service around tables of songs, a story, prayers, and time to wonder, create and chat together. There will also be Junior Church once a month: small groups for those aged 0-18 taking place during the 10am service. See the Chesterton Chimes for more info and dates, or contact our Junior Church Coordinator (for ages 0-11), Julia Eisen, or Youth Work Coordinator (for ages 11-18) Hannah Fytche.

The small groups during Junior Church are: Crèche (for preschool children, with parents);  Rainbows (age 3 years – Reception); Wonderers (school years 1–3); Seekers (school years 4–6); Why Group (school years 7-13).

Church Mice

Before March 2020, Church Mice – our group for babies, pre-school children and parents – met regularly once a week. Unfortunately out of concerns for safety and hygiene, Church Mice is not currently meeting, though this decision is regularly reviewed.
