Children & Youth Groups

Due to the Coronavirus crisis we have restricted services at this time, but the Abbey looks forward to welcoming children of all ages when our groups below resume.

The Abbey welcomes children and young people of all ages, particularly to the 10.15am Holy Communion with Abbey Choir, when there are group activities for:

Creche Babies - 2 year olds
Sparklers Up to School Reception
All Stars School years 1 - 3
Fireworks Year 4 upwards

Children are invited to begin the service at the back of the Abbey where the leaders then take the children into their groups to do different activities such as crafts, drama and discussion surrounding the Scripture Union material being taught that week, all being tailored so that it is interesting and appropriate to the different age groups.

Everyone rejoins the congregation in time for the Notices and the Peace with their families. When there is sometimes an opportunity to ‘show and tell’ something from the morning’s activities.

Anchor (Bath Abbey Youth Group)

We meet every other Monday evening during term time from 5.45pm to 7.15pm. It is a great opportunity for our young people to share food (all prepared for them!), have fun and be led in a Christian discussion, Bible study and prayers on topics relevant for today. Anchor also hosts regular socials to encourage friends to come along and have some fun. Girls aged 11 to 18 years all welcome.
