Children & Youth

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.

Requirements: Due to the new surface on the astro – ALL players need to have moulded studs (
to find out what moulded studs are) I know its a pain to have to get new boots for kids but there are some really cheap options at sports direct^Firm%20Ground%20Football%20Boots

– All players need to bring a water bottle

– We recommend all players bring a light jacket and to make sure they are warm enough, as the nights close in we may get some bad weather and  we don’t want anyone getting too cold out there.

SIGN UP: We are asking parents to sign up in advance so that we know how many are coming and so that we can send you specific details about some of the COVID procedures that need to happen related to the community centre.
to sign up, please email on Ben Bradford on: or call on 07921035361.
