CHILDREN & FAMILIES
Children of all ages are very welcome at St Peter's. There are a number of different groups and activities for children and young people which take place during our 9.30am Sunday service and throughout the week. All groups ensure appropriate Covid precautions are taken.
St Peter's has a fulltime Children & Families Worker who runs many of these activities and supports families in the Church. You can find out more about Helen and get in touch with her here.
See below for details about what's on.
Tots takes place during our 9.30am service. 0-4s can enjoy songs, toys and simple activities. We are all together in Church for the first 10 minutes or so, then the little ones go through to the Church Hall (with a parents/carer) for Tots. They come back into Church for Communion and stay in for the short remainder of the service
During our 9.30am service there is a group for primary school-aged children (roughly 5s-11s) for fun, age-appropriate, interactive Bible teaching. We are all together in Church for the first 10 minutes or so, then the children go through to the Church Hall for Junior Church. They come back into Church for Communion.
Baptism & Thanksgiving
At St Peter's we offer two ways of celebrating the arrival of a new baby in the Church: Thanksgiving or Baptism. Click here to find out more about both.
Pre-schoolers and their carers are welcome every Thursday morning in term time for activities, games, songs and Bible teaching. Join us at 9.15am for a late breakfast of toast, pancakes and coffee. Donation of £3.
Mon 22nd - Thurs 25th August 2022
The Club is open to children of primary school age and is a fun-packed time with singing, Bible teaching, videos, crafts and games.
The club runs 10am-12noon each day and you can reserve places for children by emailing email@example.com.

School Assemblies & Visits
Rich (St Peter's Vicar) and Helen (Children & Families Worker) are regularly invited by the various Brackley primary schools to take assemblies and lead RE lessons. Schools also come down to the Church to learn more about what goes on and for the occasional service. Brackley Junior School is a Church of England school and has particularly close ties with St Peter's.
