At St James With St Pauls West Bromwich we love having children with us and celebrate that almost a third of our congregation is made up of children and young people . However, we understand that the service may not always be fun and accessible for children, and so we have our Sunday schools.
SJP Kids is our Sunday School group for children in Reception to Year Six and this meets during our church service at St James in the morning.The group sings songs, plays games, prays, completes a craft and looks at a story from God's word-The Bible.
SJP Mini Kids is the group for our youngest church family members with children from birth through to Nursery. Running during the morning service at St.James, This relaxed session includes a story, craft and plenty of free play. Parents are welcome to stay with their children and listen to the sermon through an audio link or to leave their children with our volunteers and enjoy the service.
SJP Youth Group During the evening service at St. Paul's Church we run our youth group. This session is for secondary school aged children / young people and looks at the Bible in more depth, using games, activities, crafts and discussion. Young People are permitted to attend this session without their parents, with prior agreement of the SJP Youth Group Leaders. Transport is also available for young people who are otherwise unable to attend. If your Child is wishing to attend unaccompanied, please contact Emily, Our Youth Worker via the 'contact us' section of this website to make arrangements.
Children with Additional Needs St. James is a lively and inclusive church and we welcome all, this is also the case in our Childrens rooms. Several of our children require additional support and we do all that we can to meet their needs. If you or your child may need special accommodations during the service or Children's groups, please speak to the welcome team on the door as you arrive at church and they will try to ensure you are provided with any help you may need.
We always love to welcome new children. It may be that Mum or Dad joins them in SJP Kids for a week or so so that they can feel more comfortable settling into the group.
