Children

Children are an important part of our church family and are very welcome. In addition to the activities detailed below, special events are also held at other times, for example Easter and Christmas. There are many opportunities for children and youth across the different churches as well as to join in monthly Messy Church either at Stoke Climsland or Callington.  You can find out more details of what’s going on by clicking the Families, Children and Youth pages for each church.  Not only will you find friendship but also people ready and willing to provide practical and spiritual support. 

These activities are organised alongside the adult services for different age groups, for toddlers, teens and young adults, designed to provide a fun environment supporting bible based teaching.  All our leaders and helpers have undergone appropriate training and clearance in safeguarding.

 

 

Sunday Morning Live! 

Sunday Morning Live! or SML! is a Sunday school based in Callington town hall every 2nd, 3rd and 4th Sundays. It runs from 10am to 11am for those attending St Mary's church as the church is across the road! It is for children and youth aged 2 years to 18 years! Come to learn all about God and do activities that are age appropriate. Your children or teen can have their own church service while you enjoy yours. Contact our Families Leader for more information. 

 

 

Cooking is Fun!

Cooking is Fun! is an opportunity for children to learn some cooking skills. Every other Thursday at 4pm in St Mary's church. They will prepare a meal, a mains and a pudding, and eat it when it is finished. Please contact Margaret Morris for more details, call 01579 382944 or email. 

 

 

Open the Book

Each week our Open the Book teams visit an Assembly at Stoke Climsland Primary School to dramatise bible stories and bring them to life for the children. Every other week another team goes to Upton Cross Primary to do the same. There is nothing more uplifting than hearing 180 children scream "Open the book" at the top of their voices to ask for a story from the Bible. Open the book is also used at Messy Church, WOW and in some church services. If you have some spare time during the week, Tuesday at 10am (Stoke) and every other Friday at 8.30am (Upton Cross), please do consider joining one of our teams.
