Sunday Groups

Sunday groups for children are offered during the main morning services in term time unless there is a Family Service when everyone remains in Church together.

Children going out to groups leave after the first part of the service. The groups are run in Bidborough school, just across the road from the church. The groups welcome any who are new to St Lawrence, or just passing through. Parents are welcome to come down with their children to settle them into the groups if they wish to. The groups are:

Babies and toddlers

See details here for Gems for the 0 to pre-school age range. On Sundays when Sparklers is running Gems wil join them acompanied by their adult helpers. If children become unsettled the helpers will come and find the parents(s) in church.

This group is for children in reception to year 3. Lots of fun, interactive Bible stories, songs and an activity. Helping the younger members of the church to understand that God loves them. This group meets in the old school, familiar ground to any young ones who are already in the Reception class at Bidborough School.


This group is for children in years 4-9. We meet in the school hall where there is plenty of room for some games before sitting down to learn what it means to be part of God's family, and to live the Christian life at home and school.
