Children & Families

At Abbey Church we love to be family and spend time together as family, but we also recognise the importance of being able to engage with our children and young people in a way that is helpful to them. As part of that we run different groups on a Sunday and midweek to allow them to meet together and explore what Christianity means for them. The children are welcome to stay in our main service but parents often find it helpful to allow their children to join one of the groups available.
