At All Saints' we believe that children and young people are a vital part of our community. We actively encourage them to follow Christ and be full members of the church. We endeavour to provide many opportunities for them to get involved in.
All Saints' Junior Choir
All Saints' offers children aged 7 and older the chance to learn to sing and make music under the guidance of a professional teacher and musician in our Junior Choir. See the music page for more details about this exciting opportunity.
The People of Tomorrow (TPOT) - Youth Group
TPOT meet each month at the Unity Centre on a Sunday evening at 6.15. The group provides fun and games as well as Christian learning. (During the holidays it does not meet.)
Little Saints is our toddler group that meets each Thursday morning in term term from 10-12. This space provides an opportunity for toddlers to play and for those looking after them to have a tea or coffee!
Sunday Saints - Sunday Schools
Sunday Saints is our Sunday morning group for children of all ages. They meet in The Crown pub's conference room where they do various activities based on the Bible. The group starts at 9.45 and the children are escorted back to church for the end of the service and to share with the rest of us what they have been doing.
The leaders and helpers of Sunday Saints organise an annual Good Friday workshop. This involves various craft activities and the building of an Easter Garden and takes place before the Good Friday worship at 11.00.
Children's Confirmation Class
Confirmation classes take place each year to prepare young people for confirmation of their baptismal vows before the Bishop. This is run by the Authorised Lay Minister, Clare Camp.
Stamford Schools Together Festival
All Saints' organises an annual School Festival on behalf of Churches Together in Stamford, which is aimed at children in Year 4 from the local state schools. Children engage in workshops which vary in nature from making candles to calligraphy, puzzle trails, singing, drama and bell ringing.
The day involves all the churches of Stamford. To accommodate the 250 or so children, the churches provide locations for about 20 workshop. This Festival is truly ecumenical and receives great support from schools and churches alike.
Pop Up Toddler Church
A weekly outdoor based nature group that meets Tuesdays at 9.30 on the north lawn of All Saints' Church. The sessions run every week during term times and all are welcome to attend this free group. Every session has free play, stories, snacks, crafts and songs, tea & coffee is also provided for adults during the session. Each week has a different nature theme and we advise bringing waterproofs for inclement weather.
