Children and Youth Sunday Groups

Children are welcome in Church!Sunday Club Goudhurst Church
Sunday Groups are open every week during term time, during the 10:45 Sunday morning service at St Mary's. There are 50 - 60 children and teenagers in our groups each week.
We have five groups for children of different ages - so each group can do the things they like, and get to know God in a way that works for their age. Our aim is for the children to have loads of fun, to build strong friendships and to grow up knowing God. We take the safety of children very seriously, and all our leaders and helpers are DBS checked. 

Each group starts off in their venue. The groups are open for children to arrive from 10:30 and the activities start at 10:45 (except for Explorers, who start at 10:15 in the Vicarage)
Families, children and young people are welcome at GK Church, so don't worry if you feel a bit nervous first time - we'll do all we can to make sure you find friends, settle in and have a great time. To try out Sunday Club come along any Sunday and someone will show you where the relevant group is taking place - or call or email Caroline Turvey, to find out more.
We need a completed registration form for every child in our Sunday Groups - leaders will have forms with them or you can download a form here.
For school years 7-13, as well as Sunday mornings, our Youth Group meets on alternate Fridays, for games, night walks, treasure hunts, film evenings and more. To get the Youth Group dates and term card contact Caroline Turvey at carolineturvey.gk@gmail.com
We look forward to welcoming you.
Little ones are very welcome at St Mary's. Our Children's Chapel has toys, games and crafts - all set up for pre-schoolers. Leave your child with us and enjoy the peace of the service in the main church, knowing that your children are happy and near by.
