Early Years to KS1With you every step of the way
A church where everyone can find a home
As your child makes their way through school, there are a number of groups that they can find a home in.
Children are really important to us, and it’s important to us that young children feel at home in their church which we know will come with some noise and energy depending on their mood!
Each Sunday we have some fantastic provision for our children. Normally, they will join us at the start of the service and then go out with Dee and her team to enjoy their own session and let off some much needed steam! Sometimes we have a fun filled family service (for things such as Harvest) at which point they stay in, playing a full part in all that’s going on.
For those younger, and indeed, for any children who would prefer to stay in the service there is a children’s area where they can explore all that’s on offer during the service. Also, as they get older, many of our children play an active role in our services by doing things such as reading and being the acolytes (carrying the candles) which we love!
After the service, we all gather for coffee and biscuits, and our children get well and truly spoilt!
Church is a wonderful way for children to get comfortable speaking to a wide range of people, and gives their adults some space to reflect on the week and get a hot drink too at the end of it!
Being part of the team
It’s important to us that children can choose to be part of the various teams that we have.
One of the easiest ways for them to be part of church life as they get older is to join the serving team, and then start reading and leading our prayers too. Reading and leading prayers is a fantastic way to get your young person confident at that lifelong skill of public speaking too – and what better way to start then a set of smiling and friendly eyes encouraging them on!
Just speak to the Vicar or Dee, our children and families lead if your child would like to explore this.

Plan Your Visit
You can find us at St George’s Church, Church Street, Altrincham, Greater Manchester. WA14 4DB. Parking is available both in front of church, in the car park in front of the Parish Centre and (outside of school hours) also with our neighbouring school, Altrincham CE Primary School just off Townfield Road, WA14 4DS.
We know it can be daunting going to a new place if you or someone you know or are responsible for, have special needs. We are committed to making our church as inclusive as possible, so please do get in touch to discuss how we might enable St George’s to be a place for you.
We know that joining a new group can be hard, especially when you’ve not been there before or don’t know anyone.
Please be assured that nearly everyone starts off in the same boat, and that we are very relaxed and go out of our way to make you feel quickly at home.
If you are feeling particuarly anxious, and would like to meet a ‘friendly face’ before going in, or perhaps have a quick phone call to check everything out, do get in touch here and we can easily arrange it.
