Children and Youth


For: Under 5’s and their carers
When: Monday mornings 9.30 – 11.15 am (term time)

We a lively sessions each week when Parents, Carers and Grandparents bring their preschool aged toddlers and babies to a morning of play and fun. Newcomers are always very welcome.

For the time being you will need to book a place through Eventbrite.

Only one ticket is needed per household and unfortunately we are not able to accommodate childminders at this time.

We try to offer a varied programme for each session so regularly include a craft table, story time and singing spot, as well as a wide selection of toys suitable for pre-school children. From time to time we include a “Special” mornings such as “Messy mornings” (where paint, glue and play-dough are found in abundance). If your child loves playing trains, farms, cars, dressing up, jigsaws, puppets, pretend cooking or pretend shopping then come and let them play while you can get to know other parents and carers from the area. There are plenty of refreshments on offer which are a perfect start to chatting with old friends or making new ones.

We run every week of school terms on a “drop in and stay as long as you like” basis. If you live in the area and would like some company for yourself and activity for your children then ACORNS might be just for you. We’d love to meet you.



The Woodlands Church Sunday school is known as J.A.M (Jesus and Me) and is for children aged 3 to 11 years old.

Normally on a Sunday morning the children leave the main church service at about 11:00 o’clock for age related bible teaching. We aim to teach the children from the bible in a fun and enjoyable way that engages them in bible truths and points them to Jesus. There are a number of age appropriate classes

We are thankful to God for the children we have in our church family; they are a blessing to us and it is great to play a small part in working with parents to pass on God’s Good News to them.

Please contact the church office if you would like more details.


For young people in secondary school there are groups on a Tuesday and a Sunday.

The autumn 2021 programme can be downloaded here, but please get in touch if you want any more information.
