Banner Image:   Children and youth
We are committed as a church to serving families and supporting parents as they disciple their children.  During our regular Sunday morning services, we run a number of Junior Church groups for children of different ages, all of which are run by enthusiastic, trained and safely recruited volunteers:
Creche for 0-2 year olds
Climbers for children in EYFS to Year 1
Trailblazers for children in Years 2 to 6
Explore for children in Years 7 to 9
As children get older, we seek to encourage and train children to stay in the service more frequently and for longer.

Being a young person in 2021 is far from easy (and neither is parenting a teenager!).  To support, disciple and encourage the secondary school aged children of our church we meet together during term-time for a Friday night youth group with a great team of leaders (consisting of fellowship, fun and a time of looking at God's word together, as well as frequent social events).  Fortnightly, we meet during the Sunday morning service for our Explore group.

Child Protection policy

Magdalen Road Church operates a Child Protection Policy which sets out how the church must organise itself to provide a safe environment so children and young people in our care can feel safe and happy as they take part in their various activities. The Child Protection Co-ordinator is Matt Hutchings.
