Children and Youth

We run a rich and varied programme of activities for children and young people in the parish. Here are some of the highlights:

Sunday mornings

St. Chad’s, St. Mark’s and St. Martin’s have toys, books and colouring activities for children during their morning services at 9:30am.

St. Andrew’s runs a Cool School and creche for children during the morning service from 11am.

Sunday afternoons

We have a group of young people that meet with others from churches across Kirkby, Knowsley, Prescot and Huyton. Some of these will also be taking part in an exchange visit with our partner diocese in Virginia in 2017.

Tuesday afternoons

Messy Church takes place at Kirkby CofE School in term time from 3:45 Р4:15pm, with activites and refreshments before hand from 3:15pm. Fast moving, exciting, musical and interesting, this is an event for children and parents.

Annual Events

We also have various events and parties that happen annually, such as a Pancake Party, a Good Friday Activity Morning, a Light Night (alternative to Halloween) and a Christmas Party.

Centre 63

There is a wide range of activities that run out of Centre 63 for young people – see their website for more details.
