Children and Families

St Mary's offers opportunities for families with children to celebrate their faith and God's love for them.

During 2022 we will be meeting every month to celebrate God’s love with younger families, and linking our gatherings to the Faith at Home materials prepared by the Church of England.

Our activities will be monthly, not always in church (sometimes we will be outside!) and we will meet not always solely for worship. You are warmly invited to join our Facebook page where more details and events are posted – just look for “All Ages Worship Together at St Mary’s Barnard Castle”

The dates for 2022 are:

  • February 13th
  • March 13th
  • April 10th
  • May 15th
  • June 12th
  • July 17th
  • August 14th
  • September 4th
  • October 2nd
  • November 6th
  • December 4th and 24th

Junior Church

St Mary’s is able to offer materials for children’s activities during church services. Books, paper and drawing packs are available on the trolley as you come into church, and activity sheets can be provided for each Sunday’s 10.30am service.

For children attending regularly, we also offer two ‘Junior Church’ sessions each month, held in St Margaret’s Chapel in the North Aisle during the 10.30am Sunday morning service.
