We will be thrilled when you and your family come along to All Saints Weston and we welcome you. We hope that you enjoy our Services and Children’s work and that you find that amongst us you can have your time sharing the stuff of your life with the story of God.
If your children attend Crèche, Sunday Saints or the Youth group, there is a form that needs to be completed and signed by you. This can be down loaded at the bottom of this page or please do ask for one, it is important as your child may have allergies that we need to be aware of.
It is important for you to know that your children when in Crèche, Sunday Saints or Youth group are well looked after; our volunteers are DBS checked and will have had instruction in best practice when looking after children. They will have been on a Safeguarding course run by the Diocese or be with someone who has attended.
We all start with the main service in church and then the children, with their leaders, leave during the 2nd hymn.
Every 1st and 3rd Sunday (at 9.45) apart from special services such as Harvest Festival and Remembrance Day we provide a Crèche in the Church Hall for children aged 0-Year 1.

Sunday Saints takes place every 1st and 3rd Sunday (at 9.45) for children in Year 1 and over.

We are very proud that our Church has seen that it is important for baptized young people to receive Holy Communion before Confirmation. If you are between 8 and 11, you can attend a course to explore this for yourselves. We are using ‘Children and Holy Communion, a creative preparation programme’ by Diana Murrie and Steve Pearce. This is a 4-week course with a week’s break in the middle.
We also hold classes for those who are age 12 and wish to be confirmed.
For more information on both Holy Communion and Confirmation please speak Susan Ross our Children and Families Leader.
The Children’s Chapel is a special prayer space. Every part of this church is open, but this is a special place where children can use a selection of interactive prayer stations and speak in their hearts to God.
A crucifer is appointed to carry the Church’s Processional Cross, during processions at the beginning and end of Service. An acolyte is responsible for bearing lights during the procession. If your child would be interested in becoming involved in this team, please speak to our children’s leader, who will be happy to answer any questions you have.
We hope that you have found this informative and helpful. If you feel that there is something missing, please do let us know.
