Little Fishes

Thursdays 2.15 – 3.15 pm fortnightly in term time.

Little Fishes is a Parent and Toddler group held in church every fortnight during term time. It is an opportunity for parents to meet up and chat, whilst their children are in a safe and child-friendly environment.

Each session will include a Bible story, a song and prayer and an activity based on the story for the day.

Messy Church is a form of ‘church’ using creativity to explore the message of Jesus, and what it means to follow him.  We had a very successful Messy Easter which attracted 80 adults and children.  Messy Church happens once a term, and dates will be advertised here, via the pre-school and school, and Facebook.


Sunday School

Sunday School meets at 9.30 am in the school during the first part of the service and the children come into the church at the time of the Communion for a Blessing.

Sunday School is for school-age children and each week the focus is on learning the Gospel stories in a fun way appropriate to their age. Examples of their craft work are often displayed in the church.

St Thomas' Youth Group (STYG)

STYG is open to young people between 11 and 15 years old.  The group is currently run by Rev Sharon and takes place on 2nd Sunday each month 6 – 7.30 pm.  There is also a youth and parents 6 o’clock service on every 4th Sunday of the month.

We are careful not to have dates that clash with the Groombridge Youth Project as we wish the two groups to complement each other.
