Children & Families

The Abbey welcomes children and young people of all ages. It is always a delight to see them. The 9.30am Parish Communion includes Sunday Groups as follows.

Creche Ages 0-2
Sparklers Age 3 - Reception
All Stars Year 1 - Year 6

Group study materials use a variety of learning styles including Godly Play and a variety of craft activities. We all begin in the service together at 9.30am, with children sitting with their parents. After 15 minutes the children make their way to their groups (parents can come too, if children would like them to!) The children rejoin the service in time for Communion or Blessing with their parents. Towards the end of the service, they are sometimes invited to the front of the Abbey to show us something they have produced together; or to explain what they have been discussing.

Anchor (Bath Abbey Youth Group)

We meet every 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 twice a term to encourage friends to come along and have some fun.

Boys and girls aged 11 to 18 years all welcome.

Upcoming dates:
16, 23 April; 14, 21 May; 4, 11, 18, 25 June; 2 July
