Groups for children and young people at St Mary's Theydon Bois take place on a Sunday and midweek, and are run in partnership with the Red Balloon Family Foundation
On a Sunday, there are two groups, one for children in Years 1 - 6 and a second group for pre-school and reception age children.
Groups take place during the 10.30a.m. service on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the month (the next sessions are 26th November and 10th December 2017 and resuming after the Christmas break on 14th January).
Children begin the service in church, leave for their groups during the first hymn and remain in their groups until the end of the service.
Parents are welcome to remain in the pre-school group, but the parents of older children are asked to return to the main service once your children are in the care of our team of volunteer leaders, all of whom are appropriately DBS checked and volunteer following the principles of the Diocese of Chelmsford Safeguarding policy.
ACTION is for young people in school years 10 - 13 and takes place at St Mary's on Monday evenings during school terms from 7-9p.m.
