Children and young people

St. Swithun's has lots on offer for young children and teens, and their parents. For the really young there are regular weekday baby and toddler groups at all three of our Parish churches during term time, while older children aged 10 to 14 can join the "TRAX" youth group, which meets in St. Swithun's Hall on the second Sunday of the month.

St. Swithun's usually holds a Worship Together family service on the first Sunday of the month at 10am, which is well attended, especially by those with young families. During the rest of the month younger children can attend Good News Club in St. Swithun's Hall while their parents attend the 10am Eucharist. There is also a monthly Tiny Tots service on a Thursday morning which is a special time of songs, Bible story and prayers for babies and toddlers followed by refreshments, play and chat in the Hall.
