Children and Youth
Our God is a great God – he’s been doing extraordinary things in the lives of kids at St Tom’s!
Through games, talks, singing and craft, we present Jesus’ message in engaging ways, creating moments children will never forget.
Children come into the 10am church service with their parents/carers. After a brief kids talk they meet their leaders at the back of the church hall.
