Junior Church

For children

We are currently rebuilding our Junior Church activities but are keen to welcome all families with young children or babies.

Our Welcome Team will greet you as you come in, and they’ll alert our Youth Co-ordinator to introduce herself and explain our facilities and children’s resources.

We have a variety of options for our families:

Children’s Resources

• Your child can borrow an Activity Bag from the stand behind the welcome desk. This contains various artefacts and discussion points linked to the morning’s service and you are welcome to use these in the body of the church during the service.

• Your child can choose an Activity Wallet containing a bible story book and activities and a game based on the story. These might be more successfully enjoyed in our upstairs Millennium Room where children can talk and play freely. Our Youth Co-ordinator will unlock the room for you.

Family friendly facilities

If you are still breast-feeding and feel awkward feeding in front of others whom you don’t yet know, you can use the downstairs Millennium Room. The service can be relayed into this room so you will still be able to participate in the service.

There is a toilet in the entrance lobby that has changing facilities. (Please take any dirty nappies home with you.)

All Age Communion Service

We have periodic All-Age Communion Services at which families and children all worship together in the main church. In these services the worship is child-friendly and the children participate in a variety of ways.


Please call our vicar, Robert Thompson on 01992 413691 if you are interested in having your child baptised, or come and meet him after any service in church.


Preparation for confirmation involves a course of instruction. Please call our vicar, Robert Thompson on 01992 413691 if you are interested in becoming confirmed.

Safeguarding Policy

The Parish of Bengeo has appointed Children’s Welfare Officers who ensure that all members of the team are screened in accordance with the Parish’s Safeguarding Policy, a full PDF file of which can be downloaded here.

Our child welfare officer is Bridget Hersant: 01992 422702.
