Children and Youth

Children and young people are central to our way of thinking about the gospel. Jesus was clear –“let the children come to me and do not prevent them”. We have dedicated one whole side of the church for parents and children to be present during worship and to absorb what it is to see those around them engaged in worship. We also continue to support and empower young people in many ways.

For more information, contact Jacob or Lauren.

Forms and Documents for Children and Youth Activities

Children’s Church / Youth Church

Each Sunday at 10am during the Parish Communion Service

Children and young people are an essential part of our Church community and are welcome at any service. 

On the 1st Sunday each month we have an All Age service in which the children and young people take an active part and remain in the church.

Children are invited to participate in Children's Church (0-8s) / Youth Church (9+), with activities and opportunities to dive deeper into faith catered to specific ages. We gather as a part of the church community and leave for around 30 minutes, returning in time for communion.

Location: St Andrew's Church, Greyhound Rd, W14 9SA

Play & Pray

Tuesdays 10–11.30am

Pray & Play is a relaxed and fun space offered for toddlers and their parents/carers. We gather with free play and sensory activities, and parents/carers can grab a coffee or tea, and conclude our time with songs and a Bible story.

Location: St Andrew’s Church, Greyhound Rd, W14 9SA

Songs & Stories

Wednesdays 10–11.30am

Songs and Stories is a fun and exciting place to be! Parents and children are led through a series of action songs, have a break to share fruit, before story time and bubbles. The cost per family is £2, but this may be waived in cases of need. New people are welcomed nearly every week. The sessions are attended largely by people with no other connection to St Andrew’s church.

Location: St Andrew’s Church, Greyhound Rd, W14 9SA

Church Youth Group

Wednesdays (Fortnightly) 57pm

Young people are an important part of our Church family and we are always looking for new ways to empower and encourage them. Being a Christian should be fun and exciting, we aim to do just that at youth group. We run a group for those in school year 6+. From time to time, we gather outside of our normal time for trips and events.

W14 Youth Club

Fridays 6-8pm

Our Youth Club for secondary school age young people is brilliant for those who enjoy sport, in particular football – we have a professional coach to teach and facilitate matches on the astroturf. Not into sport? That's OK too! We also offer activities, games, craft and a place to chill (oh! and trips!).

Youth Ministry in Communion (YMIC)

St Andrew's is proud to be leading a new initiative that promotes collaboration across parishes in the catholic and eucharistic traditions of the Church of England to develop local youth ministry. We have a vision to see youth ministry renewed in the sacramental tradition of the Church of England here in London and further afield.

We meet together as young people and young adults for an informal & contemporary service of Holy Communion with music, teaching and prayer. Afterwards, we gather to share supper over great conversation.
