Children & Families

At St Gregory's we welcome children of God of all ages to join us

We welcome people of all ages

Children and families are an important part of the life of St Gregory's

Since January 2020 there has been a new 30 minute informal Family Tea Service at 4pm on the first Sunday of the month. It is designed for families with children of Primary school age- whether or not they come to church at other times.

There is a Bible story, a song, a short interactive talk and prayer and sometimes craft- all in 30 minutes!- plus tea and homemade cake afterwards. Families with children are always welcome!

We also have all ages worshipping together at Christmas, Mothering Sunday and Harvest Festival.

There is a Children’s Corner near the Hussey Chapel which is always well stocked with books, soft toys and colouring sheets for visiting families to use during other services.

(We also have a toilet facility!)

Currently we can’t meet so there is a Facebook page for resources and videos – come and visit Facebook @ stgregscofe and get in touch! We would love to hear from you!

At St Gregory’s we are also fortunate to have strong links with the village Voluntary Aided Church Primary School, which a lot of children who live in Marnhull attend, together with others from the surrounding area who have chosen St Gregory’s School for their child.

As a church community we welcome the whole school each week for Wednesday Worship in Church, where parents/carers are always welcome (and coffee can be provided before the service). The Church is open from 2.15pm with the short interactive service starting at 2.45pm. The worship is planned and led by the year 6 Worship Ambassadors with support from Revd Gaenor and teacher Mrs Cook-Paine and uses each of the school’s values as its basis every half term. 

As currently we can’t worship together please visit the Tea Service Facebook page for Wednesday Church Live at 3pm during term time.

Volunteers to escort the children safely to and from the church and to serve teas and coffees to the parents and carers are always welcome.

Revd Gaenor is on the Governing Body as ex-officio governor with particular responsibility for spirituality and pastoral care.

There is a current need for a foundation (church) governor. 

If you are interested in this role or being a Wednesday volunteer please speak to Revd Gaenor.
