CHILDREN & YOUTH
Every Sunday morning during the 11am service at Harwell we have groups for children up to about age 14, and up to about age 11 in Chilton. We have family areas in both Harwell and Chilton for younger children. On the first Sunday of the month and during school holidays, all ages meet generally together, and on the second Sundays in Chilton we have 'Pebbles Family Service' in the Village Hall, running alongside a service in church. YF, for young people of secondary school age meet on Sunday evenings.
Every summer we have a week-long holiday club at Harwell or Chilton School for children of primary school age. Click here for more details.
We have various events throughout the year for children, for example around Hallowe'en, Advent, and Easter. More details to be found on this website and on the calendar.
One of our Children and Families' Workers and the Associate Minister regularly takes assemblies at both Chilton School and Harwell School and the churches are in involved in various other aspects of school life. 'Y-Club' is an after school club held at Chilton School on Thursdays, led by Rev Pam Rolls. The Rector is a Governor at Chilton School.
1st Harwell (St Matthew's) Scouts is sponsored by St Matthew's Church and has groups for boys and girls between the ages of 6 and 18 (Beavers, Cubs, Scouts, and Explorers).
We regularly prepare both young people and adults for confirmation. Please contact Jonathan or Pam if you would like to investigate this.
